Feeling much better since being off gluten. It's only been a week. Here are my test results. Diagnosed with pernicious anemia about 10 years ago. My symptoms have been bloating, fatigue, abd pain.

TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE AB IGA 2.1 <4.0 (Negative) U/mL

GLIADIN (DEAMIDATED) AB IGA <10.0 <20.0 (Negative) U
GLIADIN (DEAMIDATED) AB IGG <10.0 <20.0 (Negative) U

Doesn't look very convincing. Where do I go from here?

Thanks,

Dan

Welcome Dan!

This sounds VERY convincing to me:

"Feeling better since being off gluten. It's only been a week."

Continue to live gluten free - many times the test of removing gluten is far more accurate than any medical test.

Make sure you remove ALL gluten - it can be hidden in many, many foods.

Clean kitchen of all gluten - replace toaster, cutting boards, anything that can't be completely cleaned. Replace food items that could have been contaminated by gluten before you started the diet - such as mayo, peanut butter, etc.

Check out this link for much more info: http://www.celiac.co...Free/Page1.html

The transition can be a tough one - this site is the best resource to ask questions/get support.

Make note of any changes in symptoms - sometimes you'll find something improving that you didn't even think was a problem.

Good Luck :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
