Hi Guys, well here I am, a newbie, after the last lot of tests came back today.

Transglutaminase IgA Ab..........27 U/ml (<4)
Gliadin IgA......................86 Units (<20)
Gliadin IgG......................100 Units (<20)
Total IgA........................4.04 g/L (0.69-3.09)

Have an appt. with the Gastro Doctor for a consult 15 March was the earliest I could get and I'm on their cancellation list. If I pay for the biopsy instead of going with Public Health, I can get in most probably the following Friday as long as I part with $1500AUD. Otherwise it's on the waiting list I go and I can't wait any longer.

My history is pretty much the same as a lot of other members I think. Had been on Citalopram [antidepressant] up until August 2011 when it appeared to stop working. Doctor tried me on a long list of other AD's without any luck. Have been so "not well" for so long, I changed doctors and went to see one who practices Intergrated Medicine. He started me on Esoteric Acupunture [different from other acupuncture] and did a series of bloods. He dropped a bomb on me when he announced it looks like coeliac disease!!! I'm still gobsmacked. Would explain why the AD's wouldn't work. My ESR had been high for over two years, other Doctor commented on it but did nowt about it!

I know of no one in the family who had/has it but then my parents died years ago and either one of them could of gone undetected.
Oh well, nowt I can change so just have to educate myself using the good old internet and [hopefully] a good dietician :D
cheers
