      Celiac Vs Ibs
      Hi, I'm new to the forum and am looking forward to your collective help. I am formally diagnosed with IBS-D. This was done through the elimination process which included celiac testing. My gliadin AB IGA and IGG blood tests were strong positive, however a small intestine biopsy revealed no damage to the villi, and thus an overall no celiac diagnosis.
      I have only recently started an IBS diet which prohibits red meats, fats, dairy etc but includes (soluable fiber) white flour only, which I have been eating regularly. It seems to help, but not 100%, but help it does. I usually go for 1 to 2 weeks befor I get a D-attack, and usually take an immodium at that time. I had a recent attack of diarreha, which makes me feel that IBS may not be the proper diagnosis.
      I have had another antigliadin blood test which was strong positive (very high out of range) for both IGA and IGG and negative for tissue transglutaminase, TTG AB IgA. I have not been back for a follow-up to the last blood tests to see what the doctor thinks.
      My Questions are:
      Are there false positive readings for blood IGA and IGG?
      Can you have both IBS and Celiac?
      Can I reasonably assume that I have Celiac from these blood tests or should I go further with the EndoLab (sp) stool tests to be sure?
