I just received my test results back after 2 1/2 months of being gluten-free and the GI did not find any evidence of Celiac Disease so I don't know if I have healed so they couldn't see any damage or if I am actually just intollerant of:

Lactose/Casien
Gluten
Peanut
Corn
Soy Bean
Vinegar (but not wine)

and was curious about everyone elses' diagnoses.

Thanks in advance...Kate

I was gluten-free for two weeks before testing, never had severe symptoms, and don't have many of the complicating factors that would suggest malabsorption (hence, there's likely not as much intestinal damage for me as others may have). My test results were negative aside from the anti-reticulin IgA. The gluten-free diet made me feel better, and I did a dietary challenge after 1 month gluten-free (and may do another one, since that one included dairy), which had positive results.

I did Enterolab stool tests 2 months after going gluten-free and STILL showed both gluten and casein antibodies/intolerances. When I tried to subsitute soy for dairy, my BODY told me (with symptoms similar to my 'dairy' symptoms) that I also don't tolerate soy products. I also limit acidic stuff (tomatoes, citrus, acidic condiments) now, because I just feel better (less reflux, gas, bloating, cramping). My initial symptoms were EXCRUCIATING abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, steatorrhea, fatigue and other less obvious ones. Eliminating gluten relieved the excruciating pain and some of the bloating and gas. Eliminating dairy relieved the constipation, steatorrhea, menstrual like pains, bloating and gas. Avoiding soy prevented the last 3 symptoms. So avoiding gluten/dairy/soy DEFINITELY relieved my symptoms.
