Ackkk .... you said you would be eating gluten for 6 weeks first! 

How long has been your gluten challenge? How much bread did you eat?



I did a single tTG test after a month of going back on gluten: negative.


Then it was 5 months of eating from 2 up to 10 slices as I got closer to the planned test date in April.


And I was exactly in your shoes, waiting and hoping to have a positive test result on my panel that would explain my fibromyalgia and childhood-teen heath problems.

Then I got the negative results and I was quite disappointed.


Monday I went and did the old style AGA blood test in case it can help detect gluten sensitivity.


I'm starting to accept that maybe I don't have Celiac eventhough I was better when I first went gluten free.

Another test I did in January said I was wheat intolerant.

There are several proteins in the wheat so maybe another is affecting me.


I don't know if I should pray for you to have Celiac.

I too wanted that diagnosis as I don't want to be taking pills for whatever I have as I believe the answer is in nutrition.

I will pray that you have the correct diagnosis to your medical issues.

What ever it is,  I think eating the right foods for you is the right way to go.



I'm seeing the gastroenterologist tomorrow morning.

I've been waiting months to see him.

I have alot of notes and questions so I hope he's the patient type.

I hope he will agree to do an endoscopy at a future time.


So pray for me please. Tell God the prayer is from taynichaf, and I'll tell Him it's for me so it goes to the right place.

And I'll pray for your correct diagnosis.



PS: it's better to be a hypochondriac now to find out what's wrong  then all your life wondering what is wrong.

I'm still doing the challenge! It's just, when I went to the doc she asked if I wanted to be tested now or if I wanted to wait..and I couldn't resist ha,I want to know ASAP! Ha.

Ah! I feel so bad that you've been eating gluten for so long :( I reaally hope that you can get an endoscopy to see what's going on!

I'll pray that all goes well for you! And I hope I have sounds bad but I just want a diagnosis...
