  1. Thanks Mushroom. I should have been more specific. While my D,25 was and is completely responsive to supplementation, my D1,25 has been steadily, independently climbing for a few years and finally hit 115 (High normal being 75 at my lab). That signalled to my docs that something was going on. Turns out that celiac was preventing my body from properly metabolizing D3 which then found its way into my blood and my urine and caused a significant deterioration in my oestopenia/osteoporosis numbers as well as a broken tooth.. Once my body is back on track, I'll increase my D3 supplementation to constructively increase my D levels. It was a lesson that high D 1,25 isn't always a good thing and may in fact signal an infection or other problem.
  2. Sweettea - If I may, what tests did you have ? For me, both the Deamidated Gliatin Abs IgA test and the t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA came back negative. It was the tgG IgG test that came back high. And that was later supported by a dramatic change in my Vitamin D levels - from 115 to 35 after approx. 65 days gluten free. PS Does anyone here know whether the innaccurate results of my IgA tests could have anything to do with my having very low Immunoglobuliina A levels ?
  3. Thank you all for making things crystal clear. And KarenG, you were right; I'm still ducking behind that piece of furniture.
  4. Of course I'll take it serioulsy but my new reality is less than 24 hours old so I stiil have to wrap my head around it. After all, even for loss of gluten, 2 of the natural stages are denial and bargaining
  5. OKAY, OKAY, I YIELD!!!!! ..... but I'm whispering to myself, if mild diabetics can cheat, why can't I ?
  6. I'm new to this forum and newly diagnosed. I have NO digestive symptoms but understand that gluten still has a negative impact on my body - lower bone density, elevated D, etc. Since those who are very gluten sensitive still eat out and sometimes accidentally ingest gluten, how about people like me ? Does anyone out there intentionally cheat ? How many times per month is it safe enough to get a gluten fix ?
