Does This Sound Right?
Posted 05 August 2004 - 12:24 PM
My Gliadin AB IGA was 144 and the AB IGG was 111. It says high is over 30, mine is like 4x that high. If mine are really that high wouldn't I be feeling more symptoms or at least be skinny? I feel so overwhelmed right now, I was just diagnosed with a heart condition in January and can't believe I know might have to deal with yet another major lifestyle change. I can't even begin to imagine how hard a gluten-free diet will be, everything I look at has some form of Gluten, how do you do this! I am so upset right now!
Does anyone have any advice on my lab results while I wait for the other to come back - do these numbers sound ridiculously high or do people have numbers like this often?
Any help would be appreciated, I am so lost! (also I did the test while fasting since they were also checking glucose, would this make any difference?)

I noticed that there is a part of this board called "Gluten-free diet and weight issues" ( http://www.glutenfre...hp?showforum=43 )- I haven't read it until now because I'm OK with my current weight, but after reading your post I looked through some messages posted there and I found out that there is quite a number of people who were diagnosed with celiac disease even though they were also fighting with their overweight. I thought you might want to look through those messages to see if they can help you. Unfortunately, I can't offer any more help, but I hope that this board will help you learn how to change your lifestyle, as it has helped me.

Did anyone else feel like they were mourning food after they found out? (i really am not a pig, I just enjoy cooking and eating) I keep thinking things like "I can never eat so and so again" its so ridiculous and silly but thats where I am right now.
Thanks again for all the support and replies, I appreciate it!

It wouldn't make a difference if you were fasting--your blood is not going to skyrocket or drop dramatically if you don't eat for a day or two.
