downtownjodiebrown added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsIs This Normal?Hi, I just got diagnosed after 50 years of floods of Celiacs symptoms. ive always been a health nut,I work in the fitness industry (which is getting tough with the 7 months pregnant wheat belly I have)..and I'm not pregnant. Anyways I had test done in Oct 2012 and then again after 4 months of a gluten free diet. My IGa scores are HIGHER than they were before eating gluten free. Is that normal? Also I have hained 15 lbs and feel the worst I have ever felt in my life. I cannot even take my depression meds because they had wheat in them. I'm at a lost here. I have had severe bloating about 20 years and i am shocked how its gotten even worse on the diet. So far the only improvement I have had was all the scalp,arms and buttocks sores are gone.
I am trying to take a product to heal my intestines and have also been eating lots of probiotic yogurts..and not the sweet yummy kind either. I am sick as a dog and fear my belly is just goin to explode one day. I cannot even do any sit ups or ab work of any kind ,its so painful. I can only wear spandex type clothes because nothing else fits. I have had a mysterious left side just under the rib cage pain that Im tired of going to the Drs for, they are just idiots and not worth the co-pay anymore.
I need serious help here. I feel like Im gonna die a painful death with this.

downtownjodiebrown added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsGood Celiacs Dr In Denver Area?i Everyone. I am a brand new member , just joined today May 9,2013. Ok I have a million questions as I JUST got diagnosed after 50 years of very serious symptoms. My current Dr didn't even tell me I had Celiacs when a lab test I took diagnosed it over 5 years ago...needless to say I am PISSED at Dr's right now. I had a bunch of labs done Oct 2012 (CBC,Celiacs Blood panel) and after reading some comments on here about what Numbers are normal, Im freaking out right now. OK if ANYONE on here knows something about these numbers PLEASE post a response.
Ok I have been gluten/wheat free 3 months now. Also taken Bio K probiotics and and intestinal healing powder. Here are my results
Oct 2012 May 2013 (after being gluten free 3 months)
IgA 474 IgA 512
glucose 83 glucose 85
cholesterol 272 cholesterol 293
HDL 56 HDL 54
LDL 200 LDL-203
Triglycerides 140 Triglycerides 180
Ok I exercise ALOT, I am pretty much a health nut in every way. I dont know anyone that works out as hard as I do. I know that is only a tiny piece of the puzzle. I have cut so much out of my diet so seeing these results was very upsetting to see. Is it normal for the IgA counts to ever be this high? If its supposed to be 20 Im in deep doo doo. Somebody give me some advice.
