Ya know...I may get in trouble here for this but that is one of the rudest comments that I have ever read on here. Glad that you don't have celiac but the rest of us here do. I am currently glutened and feeling like crap so nice way to rub it in.....good going!!

You know, Mo....I sort of thought that at first, too.

But then I thought....We always want to know what the results are with the people we help on here....maybe he/she just thought we would like to know that. And, who among us wouldn't like to not have Celiac?

Of course, Celiac is a definitive answer for why someone feels ill. Now this poor person has no idea why he is having the issues he has. Maybe he is NCGI? Maybe he has a parasitic infection? Maybe cancer? Maybe Chrohn's? Worse things than Celiac.

So to Razzle51 - I'm sorry that the doctors have not found out what is causing your medical issues. I hope they continue to search for the problem and find a good solution for you and you return to good health soon.

Congratulations! :) I hope you figure out soon, and consider non-celiac gluten sensitivity if you continue to have problems.

I'm not sure what to say exactly. There is nothing quite like being deathly ill and having all the tests say you are in perfect health. What tests did they do precisely?

I am delighted for you. Be sure to hang around and ask questions if you think gluten-free might help. I have a diagnosis of NCGI and feel way better on a gluten-free diet. I hope you get to the bottom of things.

Good luck

Yeah, I was actually happy to be diagnosed with Celiac because I at least knew what the problem was FINALLY after 10+ years of suffering and could get on the track of feeling better. Sorry you don't have the answer yet.

well, I was going to say pretty much what Karen said, so I'll just say

"what karen said"

and since I went most of my life not knowing why I felt so bad, had horrible symptoms progress in the last 10 years and pretty much was ready to die, I am one of the few people who said :

"I have Celiac! Hot damn! whoohoo!"

because I knew I had an answer and I could get well.

And, I have to add this cautionary note: sometimes, despite the negative testing results, if it walks like a duck and acts like a duck.....

(my celiac blood panel was negative and that set me up for 2 more years of living hell)

It may not be celiac, but the gluten intolerance spectrum is pretty wide.

That is sort of why I asked what tests were done. Sometimes a duck is a duck is a duck. I don't care if the tests tell you a duck isn't a duck, if a duck is staring you in the eyes, it doesn't matter what a piece of paper says. You would be a moron to say, hey, that ain't no duck!

ETA: Also, once I got my head out of my ever too ample backside, I was thrilled to have an answer. I was thrilled to not have to be on a half dozen drugs with 4 dozen side effects worse than how sick I already was. All I had to do was stop eating gluten. Simple. (Bwahahaha!)

I was relieved to find I had celiac. I liked having an explanation for 30 years of fatigue and a way out. Yeah, I would have been glad if I didn't have to follow the diet, but I would be back to square one of what to do next. I just hope that you Razzle51 will find the keys to your health struggle and be able to do something about it.

I think I was more scared of getting a negative/borderline diagnosis because theres nothing worse than not knowing for sure, especially with all these false negatives people get which I keep reading about. At least with a dx of celiac or if you've worked out you're a NCGI then you've got something you can deal with.

I'm still new to all this but hope you find out whats causing your symptoms Razzle...may even be worth going gluten free for a while to see if things improve or try an elimination diet (I'm sure you"ll find loads of info on here on how to go about it).

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
