Exactly, I've done a bit of research myself and all information told me to continue eating gluten until tests were fully completed.
i don't actually get a report, I just phone up my doctors and they state whether I need to see the doctor to discuss my blood results. Maybe some people do as they live in different countries or have different doctors.
Ouch! I feel your pain! They're horrible! My night of studying soon led to a night of doing nothing but feel sorry for myself haha
Oh you're so welcome! I'm glad you're eating gluten as so many go off it "to see how they feel" & that's usually a very bad thing because they have to go back on it to be tested & usually get even sicker than before they went off it.
When you get the tests back, if you can't make heads or tails of them then post them here along with their reference ranges. We have members who are really good at interpreting them.

BTW, if celiac is your problem & I feel there's a very good chance it is; you will most likely lose those migraines after being gluten free for a while. I had them for well over 15 years. They were so bad I really thought a bullet would be easier. I have NONE now. Heck, I don't even get headaches anymore!
Thank you for your detailed response.
Im not being horrible when I say this nor would I wish it on my worst enemy but it's comforting knowing I'm not alone in this so thank you.
i just feel so physically mentally and emotionally drained at the moment and its taking its toll on me as well as work and my studies
im hoping to get the results Monday so hopefully I will get the answers I desperately want and need.
