Blood Results Back. Doctor Is Unhelpful.

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.
