Got A Quick Question

5 posts in this topic

Well my son has been gluten-free for 3 months. My husband and I are getting tested through Enterlab as soon as we can afford the test. We decided to go gluten-free also so the house would be 100% safe for our son. We its been 6 days and all is going well. We both feel a good bit better. Well my sister works at Domino's pizza (hell right? lol) and brought us home a pizza. HOW SWEET. Well we both caved. We devoured it. lol Within 30 minutes we both ran to the bathroom. We BOTH had diareaha all day long. My stomach is still cramping and hurting and my husband has been complaining of gas this morning too. Should we take this as a sign? I am 25 and I have RA and also IBS since I was 4. I have been on Levsin controling my stomach issues since I was in kindergarden. We suspect I do have it but werent saying until we got tested, what do you think? And now my husband is going through the same pain and bathroom issues as I. I dont know what to think other than to stay away from Dominos and all gluten. Shame on us.

PS we do know you have to be on gluten for the tests, but it might take us a little while to save for the stool test because we are buying our first home right now. YAY. Thank you in advance for all your help.

I would defenitly take that as a sign, also if your whole house is gluten-free then why would you need to get the tests, I think that accident is totaly a test in itself! YOu probably do have it

P.S. how did you get the slide show for your avatar???? I would love that!

I love your slideshow avatar! Cute pics....I've seen this kind of thing using some program, but can you do that with standard programs on a comp.? :D

I don't think you have to be on gluten for enterolab tests.....as long as it hasn't been years w/o gluten...so it might make sense to have your pizza before the test, but you don't need a full-out gluten rampage....and Molly is right, this is already a good test. I think it is a sign.....you've been off gluten for a little while now, so your intestines are healing and your intestines are getting more sensitive to gluten.

Hi Amy, love the pics too :D

I would say the results of the pizza test are a BIG positive!!!!! I think Dr. Fine says you can be gluten-free for up to 6 months for his testing. My daughter was gluten-free for one month before I had her tested.

Thank you so much. The avatar was easy to make. You have to resize the images and then enter them into an animation program. I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7 which comes with Animation Shop. You can download it for a "free" trial from there website, just do a search. I downloaded the whole program off www.limewire.com :) NEVER PAY FOR SOFTWARE!! hehhehe I am a share ware type of girl.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
