Blood Test Still + After 10 Months Gf?!?!
0

4 posts in this topic

:( hi, I was diagnosed in December after being gluten-free one month. I continued to be gluten-free and had antibody blood tests re-done in the spring which showed, reportedly, that I was still getting "significant" gluten. I did find out there was barley and oats in a nutrition bar that I had thought was okay previously (because I looked at it so early on in the diagnosis and didn't recheck!)

since that major bummer, I have been SO vigilant. now it is 10 months that I have been gluten-free and my antibody tests still show up as positive! ! !

has this happened to anyone else?

what do I do? I am not eating any gluten- and I know ALL about the hidden places, and I am not taking any risks, and even my make-up is gluten-free, and I don't know what more I can do.

someone please help if you can! I can handle being celiac and going gluten-free but if it never actually gets *better* (although I haven't felt sick at all!!) then what do I do???

:angry: Jen

I don't know if your doctor has suggested this (are you seeing a nutritionist who is aware of celiac disease?), try documenting every single thing you put in your mouth (including brand names.) From toothpaste to water. Then, have either your nutritionist look at it or post it somewhere so that others who are aware (here on the board? I'm new here so I don't know the procedures yet, but it might help. :) ) Or maybe do both things. Also, where do you work? This may sound silly, but if you work in or near a bakery, you could be inhaling your gluten. Imo, you are getting into it somehow, it just might take some time to figure out exactly how. (And, if you're getting into it unknowingly, chances are others are or will to. Maybe some company isn't documenting their ingredients like they should be. :o )

Well... _how_ high? I mean, if they've gone down 50%, maybe you're body is just slow at healing on this one. If they've gone down 10%, maybe it's time to have the GI dig really deep into those "other reasons" to have a higher IgG that I keep hearing about but have never heard anything _specific_ about...

What's still high? One of the tests is very slow to fall. After 14 months of being extremely careful one of mine, I think the Iga, was still one point above the line. My doctor said to continue being careful but that I was doing a good job.

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
