How Sensitive To Gluten Are You?

That is interesting. Ten months ago at my diagnosis I would have checked off the first box as I could eat vast amounts of gluten (i.e. during my challenge I made a gigantic list of things I would never have again and believe me, I enjoyed them). Now? No idea but as I have been strictly gluten free for ten months do not want to find out. Even if I did not have symptoms I would be terrified of it triggering another autoimmune disease.

I have been gluten free since 2005 and I feel that my system is now strong enough to handle chance cross contamination.

I feel as normal as anyone. Eating gluten free is just....well normal. :D

Geez, Louise--a thought provoking question, but one for which I have no answer.

The choices are limited.

I can eat food without obvious gluten ingredients.

Hmm. "Obvious" ingredients. I don't eat these. I know obvious gluten when I see it. I am not stupid, just grouchy.

What about those companies which will never hide or obscure gluten ingredients. Like Kraft, ConAgra, General Mills, Unliver and others. How do I vote for them?

I only eat 'gluten-free'-labeled food.

This option is beyond what I eat. I eat lots of foods that are not explicitly labeled gluten-free. Lettuce. Apples. Mushrooms. Peppers. Beef. Milk. Cheese. Butter. I could go on and on.

I eat all of these things, and do not have any problems.

Dumb poll. I eat whole foods because they're better for me, not because I'm worried about gluten. The very limited choices cause you to choose answers that aren't related to gluten.

At the bottom of the poll you can click on "current results" to get the current results.

I am surprised by the percentage of whole foods eaters. Maybe it has something to do with Jestgar's comment.

Boy, you are a grouch! I think that this answer doesn't refer to things like that.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
