      Negative Blood Test?
      I just got back my results...

      ...and they are negative!

      I was tested for trans-glutaminase.

      I definitely have some kind of reaction to gluten...(vicious, evil painful C & D)

      I feel so much better gluten-free. (no bloating, no skin rash, no vicious painful C & D)

      My doc is sending me for a barium Xray of my stomach next...

      her logic is that a specialist won't make it a priority to see me without some kind of positive test.

      In the meanwhile I have been viciously ill this week, despite not eating anything gluten-y, except a sprinkling of shake n bake someone accidentally put on my chicken a few days ago.

      Just wondering, I thought there was more than one possible antibody they can test for in the blood?

      Thank you all for replying so quickly!

      The doctor ordered a bunch of blood tests - ferritin/iron, various B vitamins, anti-gliadin/trans-glutaminase. The results should be in on Monday.

      I have only been off gluten (except some soy sauce) for 5 days and my skin is clearing up - FAST!

      For anyone else that has the skin problem, I started using L'Oreal's microdermabrasion kit awhile ago. It comes with a special after-moisturizer that also cleared up those nasty little patches around my mouth... but they just kept coming back...

      I knew my skin got worse when I drank...
      I knew it got better when I ate healthy - less carbs, more veggies
      I knew I got "gut-rot" from drinking...
      I have had this abnormally bloated belly since my teens, even though I was very thin back then....
      I thought my always achy belly was from stress...

      There were so many clues...

      At the end of the day I am happy to be diagnosed if it means no more sore, bloated belly, gut-rot, D's and skinrash...

      Here's to better days!

      So... After realising that I didn't give all my friends food poisoning....

      ... and realizing that I was the only person violently ill after my big pasta dinner I went for some tests. I am still waiting on the results but in the meantime I am doing some reading.

      I have had episodes of D very frequently, but as they were often related to drinking (beer), I didn' t think it was too serious, just part of the hangover... but it has been getting worse... just thought I was wearing out and getting old! (At 26!)

      I have the rash too... have had it for years and the doctors have just said it's dermatitis.

      I also tried the Atkins diet in the past and my stomach felt great - no bloating for once in my life!

      I had a dream last night the Eggo waffles in my freezer were made with rice flour... they're not.

      I have been trying to eat gluten free as I wait for the test results.

      I only get violently ill if I eat a big plate of pasta and nothing else, or drink copious amounts of beer... I can avoid bread and pasta but I am not really willing (or able to afford) making a huge lifestyle change.

      So my question is... can any of you eat soy sauce and small amounts of other things that have a small amount of gluten without getting sick?
