Thanks squirmingitch, I think it's important to keep a positive attitude as much as I can during recovery and look forward to the good things to come rather than back. Support from family and friends is really helping too.
Thank you both for your advice. I'm definitely keen to keep to whole foods where possible at the moment and have tried having banana/milk over the past couple of days for breakfast which seems to be kinder on my gut, so fresh fruit seems like a good option right now. And I hadn't considered something like an omelette so might try that out!
I couldnt open the attachment. But as per the below study has your GI ruled other the other causes of increased intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) ?
Per this study, Increased IELS would not appear to be entirely celiac related.
"Increased IELs in small bowel mucosa have also been associated with autoimmune disorders, tropical sprue, food protein intolerance, Helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis, peptic duodenitis, parasitic and viral infections, as well as the development of intestinal lymphoma"
So I finally have the blood test results are in my hands and they are all negative. IgA, IgG and ELia. These are then bloods I had taken on Friday. They are either 1 or >1.
I've attached the biopsy results for you to peruse. Dr Google (yes I know I shouldn't but I wouldn't have found you guys if I didn't Google) indicates that having found intraepithelial lymphocytes on the tips of my villi means early coeliac but if this is true why would my blood test be negative?
Not feeling like there are any real answers now. Not that I was hoping for coeliac disease but I know I would have been relieved to know my years of suffering were actually something.
Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you? Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉 Do you know how to fix it? You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do
Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the link if you have never watched it.
