123glutenfree added a topic in Celiac Disease - DoctorsNegative 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?

123glutenfree added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithNew Celiac HereSo... 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?
