  1. Yes, we think it may be related to a course of Augmentin I took.
  2. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in July after having positive blood work and a positive EDG. I have strictly followed gluten-free diet. I research and constantly read about this disease. I have not once eaten anything that I haven't researched and made sure there was no gluten in it. I do however eat out 3 times a week but order foods from a gluten-free menu. I wanted to get an evaluation from the cleveland clinic digestive clinic. I went there on friday of last week. I felt I got excellent care. I saw two physicians and a dietician. Multiple labs were drawn. The physician contacted me today and said my TTG was higher than before. It was 28 in July and now its 38 and my vitamin D level was 22. I was placed on vit d 50,000 units weekly for 8 weeks. She also said she would recheck my TTg in a few months. The only thing I can think of would be I took Augmentin for a sinus infection last week. I had to stop in the middle of treatment because I was developing the Celiac s/s I had before. I really work hard to eat all of the right foods. Not sure what I am doing wrong???
  3. thats good to know because I love dairy.. How long do you think I should wait before starting dairy?
  4. I did have positive labs, positive antibody and positive antigen of 19 I have had GI issues for years and I do have problems with milk Feel 100% better gluten-free
  5. I did have positive antibodies and antigen .. labs were all positive,, I have had GI stuff for years.
  6. Here is the exact info from the report Duodenal biopsy Benign Duodenal Mucosa with MODERATE villous blunting and increased chronic inflammation of the Lamina propria. Comment: The villous architecture is moderately blunted and the lamina propria expanded by an increased compliment of mononuclear cells, to include plasma cells. Acute cryptitis or neutrophils are not noted. Eosiophils are not a significant component of the infiltrate. While few, scattered intraepithelial lymphocytes are present, they are not substantially increaseed. This finding is nonspecific, could be obsrved in treated malabsorption syndromes. Clinical correlation will be required. *** I was on a gluten free diet three weeks prior to the biopsy and continue a gluten free diet.

  8. Thanks so much for your advice. I agree, I am much bette now and not going to risk it.. Thanks,
  9. Yes I am staying gluten free. I feel like a different person without the gluten. He also said maybe one day you can be back on a regular diet, not a chance. I was diagnosed seronegative Rheumatoid arthritis 5 years ago. I think it was related to the Celiac disease because my RA is starting to improve. I think this was the cause of my poor health over the past 5 years
  10. I had my biopsy for Celiac Disease today. The path won't be back for 10 days but the doctor said he saw two erosive areas in my stomach and biopsied but he tested for H plyloris. He also found alot of redness on the duodenum. He said he did not see indications on Celiac disease. I was only a strict gluten free diet for almost 4 weeks. Would it really show much if I have been compliant that long. My labs were high and with a position EMA. I was extremely sick when I was on gluten, so the MD left me off the gluten for the test. I still don't think MDs know enough about it because he said maybe we can do a trial of gluten later. I told him I would never touch it again. I thought the way I feel off the gluten and the positve antibodies and the high antigen will make the diagnosis???
  11. I was wondering if anyone knew of a health food store in south myrtle or anywhere in myrtle beach.. Leaving in two weeks.
  12. I was told by my GI doctor today to continue the gluten free diet. My labs were positive though, so maybe he is wanting to look for any damage.
  13. I think I was glutenized this morning. I went to mcdonalds and ordered a sausage pattie and a egg. no bread at all. I even asked the manager if they put anything with wheat on the grill and they said no. I did have a non-fat mocha, I wonder if there is anything in the drink? I now have stomach cramps and bowel urgency. It hit maybe 20 minutes after I ate. Any thoughts?
  14. I recently was diagnosed with Celiac disease. I wanted to tell my story because the information needs to get out there. Celiac disease is underdiagnosed. I believe I have had it about 20 years. I first had IBS symtoms around the age of 20 years old. I am now 41 years old. I developed Hasimoto's thyroiditis,Hypopthyroidism around the age of 20. Possible diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 36. I know anytime you have an autoimmune disease, others are sure to follow. I see a rheumy at the Cleveland Clinic since I was 36 years old. I now wonder if the arthritic pain is related to the Celiac Disease because my RA labs are normal. I do have mild anemia and a low Ferritin level (iron store level). This year in April after researching RA, I reviewed some info about gluten free diet help with RA, so I started the gluten free diet. Once I began this diet, I noticed my IBS got so much better, the diet was tough but I stuck with it until I had my last appt in early june at the cleveland clinic. My MD asked if the gluten free diet was helping my arthritis and I told him no. He then said it may not be helpful. I then stopped the diet and ate so so many wheat products. I didn't notify my IBS symptoms until maybe a week later, once it started it got so bad (never have had so many problem with it before) I had severe bloating, stomach pain, nausea. My stomach was so tight. I even went to my GYN and had an abdominal ultrasound and I asked if he would do the Celiac panel and he agreed. I don't think he would have ordered it if I would not have asked. My labs came back. My EMA was positive and my antigen IGA was 19, which is high. I showed the info to a gastrointerologist and he agreed it was Celiac disease. Before I saw the GI MD, I started the Gluten Free diet and after 3 days I felt so much better. The GI is going to do an endoscopy most likely next week. He did not tell me to restart the gluten for the endoscopy but I have read so much info that I should be on gluten for the test. Does anyone know about this .I have also read that the is a major increase in Gastric Lymphoma with you have Celiac disease and are not compliant.
  15. THanks everyone, The information was very helpful..
