Missdoodle added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithGlutening ReactionsSo... I messed up last night and really I know better. My salad came with croutons, and I just picked them off. I was starving and service was terrible. Over the weekend I accidentally ate 3 jordan almonds before I realized they were not gluten free, I didn't have much of a reaction, just some painful gassing. But these croutons... they are doing a number on me. Painful gassing, awful noises, cramps, bloat, and today I still am feeling all of it. I am just wondering why there is such a most intense reaction this time that then almonds. I am wondering if people react more to some foods than others. Like because the crouton crumbs had more gluten than the almonds...

Missdoodle added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsTesting RelativesMy doctor advised that my family get tested as well since my results were positive. A family members Tissue Transclutaminase IgA cam back 1.23 (<.90 as standard range). Could it be elevated because they are directly related (immediate family member).

Missdoodle added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsTest Results-What Do They Mean?I went to the Dr. for my yearly exam. While there she feels my stomach and starts asking about stomach issues, my heritage, ect. She says she wants to test me for Celiac. I have a high ANA and various other autoimmune symtoms (mouth sores, rashes, joint pain) and they haven't pinned down what could be causing all this yet. Well, the test came back and she strongly advises I start a gluten free diet. If symtoms don't improve in a month or so, I am to make an appointment with a GI. Below are my lab results. I am just wondering if there might be something else, but this seems to connect the dots and makes sense. And Celiac has been added to my health record as of now.
Immunoglobulin A 113 (standard range 81-426)
Gliadin IGA 19 (>10 positive)
Gliadin IGG 33 (>10 positive)
Tissue Transglutaminase IGA 83 (>10 positive)
Tissue Transglutaminase IGG 1 (>10 positive)
Thank you all in advance. If it is Celiac, I can tell this place will be a great resourse.
