  1. There's a space for "normal range" but they're all blank. I don't see anything else on the form. I mean, I know I probably have it, what I don't get is that I've had vague, unexplained symptoms for years, so I was assuming there'd be a lot of damage and it would take a long time for it to heal. I cut down on gluten for the past few months but I cheated pretty often. *shrug*
  2. I searched for a little while and found the results on my online health insurance profile. This is what it is: Tissue transglutaminase measurement IgA 7 UNITS/ML Immunoglobulin A measurement 111 MG/DL 7 Gliadin antibody, IgA measurement 11 UNITS When the lady called and told me I had Celiac I didn't really hear anything after that....
  3. Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could help me figure my biopsy results out. Long story short, my aunt was diagnosed with Celiac a few decades ago and my dad was diagnosed a few months ago, which prompted me to get tested. My blood panel came back positive for Celiac (I tested positive for 2 out of 3 antibodies, can't remember exactly what.) That was in December, but I couldn't afford to get the endoscopy done until April. Here are the results: "The biopsy of duodenum show acid injury but no Celiac sprue. Stomach biopsies show gastritis, esophageal biopsies show acid reflux, tested negative for H, Pylori." Most of the results make sense because I drink pop like it's water and I really need to stop that, but the "no Celiac sprue" thing threw me off. For the past few months I've tried cutting back on gluten, but I cheated quite a few times (on purpose and by accident.) I'd rather ask random people on the internet who actually have these problems before I talk with a doctor, since my doctors haven't been very helpful thus far. I'd appreciate any advice you could give me.
