After 5 years of going to DR to DR, I dx myself with celiac or Gluten sensitivity. My symptoms fit it so well.
Abdominal cramping/bloating. Abdominal distention to the point of being painful. Constipation, Edema, Energy loss, Fatigue. Flatus, Mouth sores or cracks in the corners, Muscle cramping (Especially in the hands and legs) I have terrible leg cramps at night. Skin (Very dry) . Stools (Hard, Small, Foul smelling. Tooth enamel defects. Weakness, Depression, Unable to concentrate, Iron-deficiency anemia,nausea, heart burn, bone pain, abnormal menses, acid reflex, starting to get arthritis in my thumbs, I can go on. If I go gluten free, the systems abate and I feel human again, My legs stop almost the burning feeling, so do my hands, I don't feel so dragged out.
So I go to my DR and he ordered these tests, I have been 80% gluten free for 5-6 weeks now. Yes i cheat and its denial, and as soon as I cheat i am sick, heart burn, nausa,painful cramps about an hour later,
I am over weight (300) and i dont have the diarreha
this was i received from the DR
my glucose fasting is 14H (65-105mg/dl)
Potassium 4.8 (3.5-5.3)
Cholesterol total 236
LDL chol 156
platelet count 484H
platelet estimate increased
vit. 12,folate 741
tissue transglutam AB IGA <20 (<20 neg)
gliadin AB (IGG,A
Gliadin AB (IGA <20
Gliadin AB (IGG) pending
hemoglobin A1c 6.0H %
tissue transglutam AB IGG 3 (<20 neg)
Now the DR says I am not either celiac or gluten sensitive.
but I clear up and feel so much better when i am gluten free,
what could be wrong ? shouldnt I listen to my body, my dr laughed when i said that. He wasnt concerned about the burning feet, hands (its so bad sometimes i lay in bed crying, yes i know its time for a new dr. but what do i do now
Should i do the endolabs?
is being gluten free 80% of the time for 5-6 weeks enough to change the blood results, as i get older i am finding i am allegic to more and more food.
what do i do now
