  1. Thanks, I'll look into the other tests and this digestive enzyme.   And no, I was not gluten free prior to the test. However, my normal diet doesn't have a ton of gluten in it.
  2. This is my first post although I have lurked here in the past.  I recently found out that geographic tongue is associated with celiac disease, and as I have had this since childhood, I'm thinking maybe I do have it!   My Timeline: -Geographic tongue (constant since young age, not bothersome)   -2008: IBS-constipation (colonoscopy to rule out Crohn's; diagnosed as post-infectious IBS, after Salmonella infection 2 years before) -extreme gas and bloating after meals (especially after having a sandwich with wheat bread)    -10/2012: iron-deficiency anemia diagnosis. began iron therapy. -11/2012: Became unable to drink tea or alcohol. Both would now make me feel 'weird in my head' (alcohol - bad kind of weird. also felt like i could feel it in my muscles. it was very strange.) -12/2012: Began having really weird feelings after eating. Felt light-headed, dizzy, foggy (however, these symptoms went away after 2 weeks when I went back to school.)   -01/2013: Doctor suggested testing for celiac disease in addition to gluten-free diet for 3 weeks -IgA test was negative -Within a few days of starting gluten-free diet, I suddenly became lactose intolerant. I also couldn't handle fructose, as apples would give me bad gas. About a week later I was able to tolerate these foods again in small amounts. -I noticed I was pretty bloated still throughout my gluten-free diet, which was disappointing, because I seriously look pregnant sometimes. When I started eating gluten again, I didn't notice any changes, and assumed I was not sensitive to gluten.   Now I am still bloated 24/7.  I am wondering if I should have done the gluten-free diet for longer than 3 weeks? Also, are there other blood tests besides IgA to transglutaminase?    Thanks!!
