  1. My wife has been feeling terrible all of 2014: bloating, loose bowels, floating, light coloured stools, general aching, abdominal cramping (especially LLQ), fatigue, loss of libido, feelings of depression and anxiety. Many symptoms started mid 2013, but they have gotten worse this year.   She had a blood test for celiac, and here are the results:   tTg-Iga Ab 5 tTg-IgG Ab 3 DGP-IgA Ab 162 DGP-IgG Ab 3   Result Range indication for tTG and DPG Negative < 20 Weak Positive 20-30 Moderate to Strong Positive >30   Test results: Positive   Feelings towards test results: :,(   My first question is: Could anything other than Celiac produce these results? How positive is the test (90%, 99%, 99.9%)?   She will have a GI appointment where they will do a biopsy in a month or so (date not confirmed yet). So far this week, she has been off gluten and it seems already she has noticed improvement. The GI's office wants her to keep eating gluten until the appointment (the receptionist said that it might be an allergy and not Celiac). What are your thoughts? Can she just start eating gluten again a week before the appointment if need be, or does she have to feel terrible for another month?   I'm sure she'll create her own account here soon, but I had a bit of time, so I thought I'd ask on her behalf. Thanks community.
