  1. I had blood work done a year ago after a lot of things were going on and it came back like this: Test Low Normal High Reference Range Units Antigliadin Igg (Native) 25 (H) 0-19 units Note: Cascade continues Atypical Panca Negative Negative Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, Igg <20.0 0.0-24.9 Ttg/Dgp Screen Negative Negative The note said that it was "Suggestive of non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Patient may benefit from a gluten-free diet". I had the test done initially because I had a lot of symptoms around fatigue, grumpiness, mind-fog, muscle weakness/spasms, and a few other stomach issues. Since it wasn't far off and out of range, I really didn't pay attention and only tried to limit gluten. A few months later, I learned that I was also very deficient in Vitamin D. I was put on a starter dose, rechecked, and then wasn't told to stay on a maintenance dose, so I thought everything was fine. Fast forward to last month. Extreme fatigue hit me hard. I was sleeping 12 hours a day, blood sugars COMPLETELY out of whack (I'm a type 1 diabetic, and I usually have very good control of my blood sugars). I was falling asleep at work, and taking a LOT more insulin than usual. I thought maybe I was fighting off a virus or something, but then it kept on. Last week, it hit me that a lot of how I felt was how I felt before the Vitamin D was introduced earlier in the year. So I started back on what my pharmacist recommended as a "maintenance" dose and I'm finding I have more energy, but it's still not as it was. My question is, is it possible to have developed Celiac over time and I just didn't realize it? Or does gluten-sensitivity really effect someone that much? (Sorry if that sounds idiotic to ask... I'm really confused by all of this.) Should I be restested or just cut out gluten anyway?
