    1. AlexDAK added a post in a topic Sudden Insomnia After Going Gluten Free   

      Hi. I have the same problem now. After 2 weeks on gluten free diet, I have terrible insomnia. I am trying GFD for the second time, but in first time I had no such problem. Also I began to loose weight quickly and became very skinny.

      I made some research. According to DQA1*02:01 and DQB1*02:02 i have DQ2.2. I found that as many as 5% of patients with celiac disease carry DQ2.2 without any other risk alleles. So, now I can't say my HLA test is negative.

      Thanks a lot for your support.
      Now I am reading more about HLA tests to make sure I have negative HLA for celiac.
      My HLA results:
      DQA1*01:04, 02:01
      DQB1*05:03, 02:02
      So, I have no DQA1*05, but I have DQA1*02:01 and DQB1*02:02 and according to this
      and this
      it's not rare to have these genes for celiacs.
      And I also looked at this table:
      And I see that DQA1*02:01 and DQB1*02:02 means I have DQ2?
      Please, can you help me with interpretation?

      Hi. I had full celiac panel done. My results are in the first post. My doc said, that I must go gluten free and after 3-4 months if there will be no villi damage, it means that the villi was damaged by celiac disease.

      Hi. So, my biopsy results are ready. I'll try to translate them to english.
      Microscopical aspect: The fragments of the small intestine mucous membrane are with weakly reduced villi length, enlarged crypt depth, with diffuse mononuclear infiltrate of own mucous plate.
      Conclusion: morphologic picture of minor chronic duodenitis, wich may occur in 1-2 stage celiac disease.
      I don't know about what stages it is written about. I have read that if there is even a little villi reduced length it is the 3-d stage by Marsh classification. Am I right? 
      My doc said i have to be 3-4 months on gluten free diet and make the biopsy one more time to prove celiac.

      So, I have negative HLA test. Waiting for a biopsy to be 100% sure. After 14 days of gluten challenge I still have no IBS-D. I think it's beacause I began to take probiotics in the beginning of gluten-free diet.

      So, after 40 days of gluten free my IBS-D reduced by 70-80%, I have less gas and almost no episodes of diarhhea. But my other symptoms are still present. So, I think I must have a biopsy after gluten diet after 14 days. Also I made a DNA test, but results will be after 14 days. I am sure now, that gluten have an influence on me, but I need to figure out, is this celiac or something else.

      Can I Have Gluten Intolerance?
      Hi. Sorry for my English.
      I had many strange symptoms for 6 years. Now I am 29. It begins with anxiety and ibs with diarhhea, but 4 years ago they become severe and many other symptoms added. They include:

      1. Chronic fatigue
      2. Brain fog, derealization
      3. Anxiety
      4. IBS-D
      5. Light, sound sensitivity
      6. Afterimages, visual snow
      7. Constant ringing in ears
      8. Cold hands
      9. Gas, bloating
      10. Hair loss
      11. Weight loss

      I did many tests and many doctors said that I’am ok, it’s just anxiety. But I continued to make research and once I took a full celiac panel. The results are here:

      AGA IgA 2.04  < 25
      AGA IgG 3.72  < 25
      tTg IgA 13.25  < 25
      tTg IgG not detected
      DGP IgA 71.6  < 25
      DGP IgG 0.2    <25
      EMA IgA, IgG not detected

      So, I only have hi DGP IgA, my doctor said that I don’t have celiac because my tTg and EMA are OK.
      I also found, that my symptoms looks like Lyme or CFS/FMS, but I don’t have any joint pains. Also I read about anxiety disorder, metal toxicity and candida owergrowth, but I doubt this causes can give such severe symptoms.

      So I am now on gluten-free diet for 20 days to figure out may be I have non celiac gluten intolerance, but I can’t say it helps so much. May be I need more time for gluten-free diet?
