Blood Results Back. Doctor Is Unhelpful.
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi there all,

 

I just got my blood results back today and the read as follows:

 

anti TTG IgA: 75 Units (0-20) HH

Endomysial Ab: POSITIVE A

Comment: These results support a diagnosis of coeliac disease.

 

My doctor said that it looks like I have coeliac disease, but it's not so bad, so I can eat a little gluten. That goes against eveything I've read on this sight. I thought if you have coeliac disease, regardless of symptoms, you cannot eat any gluten.

 

What I want to ask is should I ask for a biopsy next or just give up eating all gluten as soon as possible.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

With those results on those particular tests, I would think it is pretty definite that you are celiac.  Whether or not you want biopsy confirmation of how much damage is up to you (and your health system/doctor).  By the way, what rock did he crawl back under after making that caveman pronouncement?   He is so totally wrong, of course.  It's like saying you just have a little bit of cancer so it doesn't matter if we don't get it all :wacko:

Could not have said it any better.

Clearly you have celiac disease.

Clearly your doctor is not up to date.

Let us know how we can help!

I have really slow Internet now so I can't get you links. Google " celiac centers". Univ of Chicago has an easy one to read. You will see that they all say it is not OK to eat a little gluten. You could show some of them to your doctor. He might look at them because they are from " real" doctors.

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
