Thank you all so much for the support and information. I did get my Vit D and B12 results back and I am deficient in Vit D, but my B12 was good. I have an appointment with the Allergist today, because I have several food allergies that did not exist until 2009 I want to have blood drawn for all food and I will see in he will order the full celiac panel. But I do have a question, "I have been fasting for the last 4 days, not eating anything, will that affect the test?"


The test may be affected Latrice. It depends on how fast your antibodies decline after the gluten removal. Some people they go down quickly, for others they stay elevated for months.

Don't know about the allergy question but wanted to share that my biopsy was negative and it is very clear and obvious that I have celiac. After my son was diagnosed, I had my blood tested and it was positive. I also had all the classic symptoms, but just didn't know about Celiac to be tested before. I went gluten-free with my son and it was like a miracle. My son's doctor just laughed at the fact that my MD said I "couldn't possibly" have celiac because the biopsy was normal. She said, "of course you have it."

Trust your gut (no pun intended) and try the diet.

Cool, feeling better is great! :) I suggest you stick with whole foods mostly and limit the gluten-free processed foods. You can always add those things in later after you have healed up some.

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.

You are quite welcome ICN1010! There really is great bunch of info here and lots of support. It's nice to know we aren't alone in these problems when they happen. It's also nice to know people can get better and improve by adjusting their diet. It may take some time for the things to get better part, but it can happen. :)

Corrected some typoes.

Absolutely...we all have different symptoms, presentation to docs, testing results, healing speeds and so many more differences -- the wonderful thing is we have the frustration in common -- this allows us to bounce ideas off each other -- this forum and many compassionate members like GFinDC have made an important difference for me more times than I can count.

I'm still learning each day -- I do hope you find answers quickly -- if not hang in there and keep asking questions :)

-Lisa

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 :)
