Akitt1 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsNew HereHello to everyone!
I have been hanging around here and reading posts for quite a few weeks. A friend of mine was diagnosed with celiac disease and I thought it might be my problem.
I have had diarrhea for my whole life. I was told years ago it was IBS and to learn to live with it. As I have gotten older I have found it to be a real problem.
I went to my primary care who told me I wasn't sick enough to have celiac disease and I was too heavy. She sent me to an allergist,who did skin testing for foods and the blood tests for celiac disease, The skin test showed positive for wheat, fish, peanuts and eggs. The celiac disease blood test came back normal. He told me to avoid those foods. Then he ran allergy bloodwork and they came back negative. I have omitted those foods from my diet and I feel better. But now they say I don't have any allergies according to the blood work. I guess the big old welts from the skin tests don't count. So according to the Drs. I don't have allergies or celiac disease.
I decided that I would stick to the diet for six weeks and see if I keep improving.If so ,that is how I will eat.
Has anyone else had all the negative tests,but felt better gluten free?Am I crazy?
