cusefan15 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHello all, My symptoms began approximately 18 months ago. Essentially, I was suffering from extreme bloating and constipation. My pcp ran a celiac panel. The results were as follows: IGA AGA: 86 Ref range: >45 pos IGG AGA: 46 Ref range: >45 pos IGA TTG: 13 Ref range: >19 pos The gi doc ran an EMA (which came back negative; at that pt. I had been gluten free for a couple weeks). After reviewing the results he said that my symptoms didn't fit celiac, and that the negative ttg test was a far more accurate indicator. As a result he dxed me with ibs. Since then I have developed and been diagnosed with the following: Chronic Fatigue (this is the worst of my symptoms) Episodes of hypoglycemia constipation bloating diffuse/radiating hand pain recurring fungal infections clouded thought pattern dry eyes (this one sucks too) low vitamin d (had been supplementing) floating stools muscle spasms dizziness upon stnading stomach growling slight macrocytic anemia (but b12 was 485) decreasing wbc (lost 40% since the start of this, now right at borderline) This may, I went to another gi doc. He didn't want to biopsy. So I decided to go gluten free. Its been ~ 6 weeks and my gi symptoms have seemingly gotten better but I am still constantly tired. Anyways, I am going to yet another gi doc this week. Not really sure what to expect since I have been gluten free for a month and a half but I am wondering if I can expect any of my other symptoms to resolve/ whether I have celiac disease. Anyways, does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks, Jake
