I'm a total newbie here and new to gluten-free as well so I probably shouldn't be answering this, but if you have celiac its not an allergy so that information wouldn't apply, however if you only have a wheat allergy then perhaps it might apply to your situation.

<_< and on the other hand----some times an allergic reaction to something is mild the 1st time and keeps getting worse after each reaction--my son was allergic to pediamyacin--the 1st reaction was mild hives--the 2nd reaction months later was more pronounced hives and the 3rd time and last--he borke out in huge hives that covered his body and i refused to give him that medication ever again--as for us--we all know that we may go months without any gluten and when we do get some---we are sick and not just for a day--sometimes over a week or longer----i dont put any stock in that report--they would have to prove that to me on someone else--not me ;) deb

I have seen this statement and have wondered the same thing. All my tests for celiac disease came back normal/negative. My allergy tests have shown these are not "true" allergies so I look at them as intolerances. My docs have all said that I will never be able to eat these foods again. Wow that I have figured this all out and feel better.

Right now, I am not hoping for the adding back in to the diet but do plan to try some of the foods after a full year. I still have occasional problems - all due to cross contamination while out or with other people that come into our house and are not as careful as we are.

Also, my reactions have gotten more severe, not less so that leads me to believe the docs just might be right.

gluten intolerance is not an allergy - the same rules do not apply.

I believe this is generally true for IgG mediated allergies, which is what York tests you for. Gluten sensitivity is predominately IgA mediated. There is also the genetics issue. If you try this, your anatomy may well tell you loud and clear how successful you are. If you are asymptomatic, you won't get the message and may cause yourself a lot of trouble.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
