EstherRB added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsNewbie Mostly Asymptomatic50 year old athletic female diagnosed initially with osteoporsis (via obscure foot stress fracture and bone density scan). Three years earlier a bone density scan showed osteopenia. Hit menopause quite early, like when I was 45. MD did blood work and I came back crazy high for celiac. I don't eat bread or pasta (except for when I visit my Italian-American family in PA at Christmas; I live in Santa Barbara), make my own soups and salad dressings. Eat 4-5 fruit a day. Water drinker. Very much a creature of habit: Dinner is either fish with roasted vegetables or a pork chop cooked simply in EVOO and salt and pepper.
I did have colic as a baby...and my only other celiac-related symptom was the 6 month pregnancy belly after having a beer (but who doesn't bloat up after drinking one).
After reading multiple posts, I'm leaning against the endoscope for confirmation. Blood work in July only revealed that I was over the normal range. Blood work from last week (and different lab) came back as follows:
Gliadin AB IGA 226.8
Gliadin AB IGG 160.0
Tiss Transglutaminase IGA 300.0
Endomysial AB IGA Positive 1:80
Tissue Transglutamanse IGG 116.4
I have an appointment to see a gastro guy next month.
What about probiotics? Again, I have no symptoms and was completely dumbfounded by the results.
