Nicole/nvsmom, Thanks for mentioning that a weak positive after 6 months to a year might indicate another issue. I will make sure to keep following up on my blood work just in case something else is going on with my body. I am still really tired, gaining too much weight, look puffy a lot and my stomach is not 100% yet, but some of those things could be caused by my lack of exercise too. I stopped exercising a while back when the anemia set in, because I was feeling really light headed and thought I might faint. I am going to start back up slowly and get on the treadmill today. Hopefully by my 6 month check up my number will look even better and I will be feeling great.


I have thyroid problems (probably Hashi's) so I think that's why my numbers like to stay a bit higher than most celiacs do. Hashi's, diabetes, and other autoimmune diseases are linked to celiac disease, so it's a good idea to keep an educated eye open for them just in case they crop up... Hopefully they never do!  :)
