Would love some help understanding my blood work. Went to the dr and saw the NP. Ive always had stomach problems since I was a little girl but after a stressful year, it seems my symptoms have gotten worse. Gas, cramping, extreme constipation, feeling like someone is squeezing my stomach with ice cold fingers, and I could go on and on.
Every time I have so much as a crumb of gluten, these symptoms kick in. Its gotten worse and worse. I want to cry, Im so depressed.
Long story short, the nurse practitioner that I saw never called with my blood work up results and when I finally got a hold of her, she said I was fine. I was not convinced I was fine, so I picked up my results and this is what I saw:
I'm positive for:
Anti- tTg IgA antibodies detected
Anti-gliadin IgG antibodies detected
Anti-gliadin IgA antibodies detected
Can someone help determine what this means? And why would the NP say I was fine if Im positive? Other blood work was inconclusive and needed to be redone.
Thank you so much for any help.
