Celiac Disease Blood Test Positive, Lipase Levels Abnormal
Posted 16 August 2010 - 09:36 PM
My main question (and I read a little in another thread but I wanted to introduce myself and get some new answers going): Did anyone else's lipase levels come back abnormal when you did the celiac blood work? I am suspecting something is off with my pancreas on top of (or because of) my undiagnosed celiac disease...
Also, feel free to give me any advice or experiences with the endoscopy. A bit nervous

Regarding the lipase levels, mine were normal, but my iron/ferritin has been way off for years now and I never knew why.
I didn't have any of the typical celiac digestive symptoms and really never even heard of this disease, so I am shocked by my positive blood test. I just have bad upper left quadrant pain and have been mildly gassy over the years when I eat "junk food". I think the anemia should have been my red flag. My main symptom that made me keep going back to Dr's was the left sided pain- also in the rib cage.
