  1. After having stomach problems for at least 12 years, I have finally figured out I have problems with Gluten. I went on a diet to lose weight in July of 2011 and I felt great. I thought it was because I wasn't eating popcorn anymore. As the diet went on I started adding back in carbs and found my stomach pain was back as soon as I ate anything with gluten in it. I took gluten out of my diet again and felt great. In January I had blood tests done that were negative due to my gluten free diet. I had the following blood tests in January 2012 Tissue Transglutaminase antibody IGA 3 Immunoglobulin A Gliadin antibody IGA 42L Vitamin D 11 In March I ate Gluten for 2 weeks and then had a endoscope biopsy done that showed inflamation but no villi damage. I tested positive for HLA Dq2. The doctor decided that I would have to eat gluten for 1-2 months and redo the endoscope to get a real diagnosis. He feels confident in assuming I have Celiac due to the various tests and the fact that I feel better on a gluten free diet. Symptoms: Fatigue gas pains abdomen distension My question is: I'm wondering if it is worth going thru the month or two of pain so I can have a real diagnosis. I would like to know if it is really Celiac or if I am gluten intolerant. Has anyone else been thru this?
