Gliadian Blood Test Results.
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

Approximately 2-3 Months ago I had some sort of severe stomach virus where my stool was literally liquid. I had this for approximate a week. Unfortunately after having this I have been suffering from mild diarrhea & a sore upper stomach and upper back off & on ever since. Also, an itchy sensation is experienced aroudn the anus area after going to the the toilet on alot of occasions. I have recently been to the doctor & got a long list of blood test & stool samples conducted.

Everything came back good. Normal for iron, normal for B12, except for one result. My IgG was 84 where normal is supposed to be <34. However my other tests for celiac came back good. IgA test came back <20 (reference of <34 being good) & my Ttg Antibodies came back at <7 (Reference <7 as good) & my Endomysial test came back good as well.

Also, all my stool tests came back fine for any infections etc. I don't remember the exact tests done on my stool, but I do know that it consisted of a large array of things, including looking for infections.

I gave 2 stool samples in small containers, one with some sort of preservative in the the container.

I have been to the specialist & he stated that because I have only had symptons for 2 Months, it is unlikely I have celiac (1-2% chance). To summarize, my symptons are:

- Stomach & upper back pains off & on.

- Unable to focus at times

- Irregular stool. However stool does not float to the top as I have read as being the case due to fat not being metabolized in small intestines.

- Stomach bloating soon after eating for about 45-60 mins

- A considerable amount of flatulence

- General consistent tiredness

NONE of these symptons I had prior to 2 Months ago.

The specialist stated that I should give it 3-4 more weeks & if condition doesn't improve, that I might want to consider getting an endoscopy. I decided that I wanted the Endoscopy test done ASAP. It is booked in for this Saturday. After the test I will have to wait about a week for the final results. I insisted to the specialist I wanted the tests done ASAP. I am booked for this Saturday coming.

Can anybody offer any feedback as to whether the the test results are common for Celiacs & any ideas of what else it could be?

Thanks in advance.

Celiac can come on at any time in life, sometimes triggered by illness. However, I doubt you will get a celiac diagnosis - with symptoms only 2 months, you may not have any damage yet even if your body is having an immune reaction to gluten. If nothing shows up, you could always try the gluten-free diet anyway. Good luck.

Has your doctor considered that you might have something going on with your pancreas? I've been gluten-free over 3 weeks and still having unusual stools. I have been eliminating dairy also. My GI is going to check this. Sometimes it's an issue of enzymes out of balance still producing the same results. Pancreatic issues can also present with stomach and back pain. I hope you get the right answer.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
