Quick Thank You
0

6 posts in this topic

I thought I should just write a quick thank you to all of you out there on this board. Over the past 4 months of utter confusion about the diet...and not exactly complete understanding from my family (who's actually very wonderful, but just a bit clueless - a friend said to me on the phone yesterday "Hey, it'll be great when you grow out of this and can eat normal again in a few years")....I've learned more on this board than I've been able to anywhere else.

Anyway - to your health - AmandaD

Amanda, I agree with you wholeheartedly! My doctor handed me a pamplet when I was diagnosed, and that was the guidance I had - I didn't understand about cross contamination at all, and was still being glutened often. Thanks to this board, I feel like I'm becoming a pro, slowly but surely.

I want to thank some of you new Celiacs as well, you are bringing up things that I haven't thought of in years. Like 17 years ago I was told not to drink root-beer because it has malt, so I never bothered checking into the new products. So, just this morning from a new Celiac I learn that I can have A&W root beer. :lol: A&W ... here I come. I think I'll bring a bottle home and make a float. gluten-free ice-cream of course.

I agree, you guys are the best! I love when someone asks a question that i know the answer to, b/c it makes me so happy to be able to give back to those that have gotten me through the past 7 months! I have no idea how hard this would have been w/o this board, but thankfully, ill never have to know. You all rock! :D

I think I learn something new EVERY DAY on this site. It is the best for dealing with all the issues that surround the confusion of having to live this gluten free life in a gluten filled world.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
