Where do you live? I was going to go to Cleveland but just got an appointment with Celiac Center in Boston. 5 hour drive next month. Hoping it is worth the trip.
Might be worth looking into.
I just educated a lab on DGP yesterday. They just brought a celiac panel in house and i saw they were using gliadin. I think they are running my sample on the old test in-house and sending it out for DGP to see what happens.
Me too, I am not a member of Medscape. Is this the article? I goggled the topic and filtered using "news". (Hope it works!)
Celiac Disease in Children: Experts Clarify Diagnosis and Management Recommendations
Here is what I liked.....a gluten sniffing dog for helping kids to remain dietary compliant! Count me in!
These blood tests were without eating gluten. I'm going to talk to them about genetic and DGP testing. There are several health conditions that are linked to celiac throughout several members of my family. It just makes sense. What I don't get is he basically disregarded those test results. Is it pretty common for those to be elevated in those with gluten sensitivity? From what I've heard, it doesn't do any damage to your body so why would the IgG(s) be 5 times the normal level(s). I just don't want to be less strict down the road with gluten free, thinking it's not damaging my body and end up with cancer in 10 years because whoops we misdiagnosed you. I'm miserable and would like to discuss individual issues with a doctor who knows celiac (like every other disease has) but can't find one who knows more than a single textbook page of knowledge. I can't imagine what this was like 30 years ago.
Thank you guys so much for taking time to help me. It's quite possibly keeping me sane at the moment to have people who validate my concerns.
