Diagnosed Again
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi.

I'm gluten-free for almost 4 months now, and I was diagnosed again.

My first diagnose showed this:

CELIAC SCREEN (Includes TTG and DGP): 236.0 U/ml

TRANSGLUTAMINASE_IgA: 55.90 AU/ml

 

Now I got these results:

CELIAC SCREEN: 10.1 U/ml

TRANSGLUTAMINASE_IgA: 5.85 AU/ml

ENDOMYSIAL Ab: Pos. 1:10

 

I understand the first two are good now.

My question is about the third one, what does it mean?

 

Thanks.

 

Edit: Perhaps this should be in the Post diagnosis forum...

You were not diagnosed again...once you have Celiac Disease you have it for life -- that your tTG has dropped significantly in four months means you are on the right track.  It can take time for the tTG, EMA and DGP to all get back to normal.

 

Were there more results from the first panel?  EMA or DGP  

 

The second panel with positive EMA doesn't mean much without comparing previous results.  1:10 is a very low positive result...my guess is it was much higher four months ago and will completely normalize within your first year gluten-free.

Thanks. I know that, I didn't mean I was checking if I still had Celiac, just to make sure I have normal results.

There weren't any other results on the first panel.

 

The problem is that, although the results are good, I don't feel so well; I have lower-stomach pains, acne, and bladder problems.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hang in there, and keep up the good work!

 

Ditto :)

 

Don't mean to dismiss...sometimes it simply takes time...four months seems like a very long time, but in the realm of healing from the damage caused from Celiac Disease it really has been a short time.

 

Because your numbers are improving...it certainly looks like you are on the right track.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
