My GI is doing an endoscopy along with my every-10-year colonoscopy because some of my antibody levels are still elevated. How soon after the endoscopy can I eat? I need to take some medication that day and am trying to decide if I will take it with water an hour before my a.m. colonoscopy prep (divided prep) or after the whole thing is over. The pills are huge and I'm not sure I can choke them down without food, so I may wait until after but don't want to wait too long either.
Tests made by different manufacturers do have different scoring systems. And some people have higher levels of antibodies than others.
Kurasz, did your sister's docs just call it a false positive because it was high? It is possible but that interpretation would worry me unless they had other evidence, such as a negative biopsy.
I used to work for a company that made allergy tests, measuring IgE antibodies. My blood (we of course tested ourselves on everything) gave a high positive reading for cat, which we disproved with a skin test. That was a genuine false positive.
I'm currently losing weight really fast. I mean really fast. Would that be something to expect after going gluten-free?
I really like the pounds coming off but is it normal and healthy to lose weight that quickly? I'm talking 3-5 pounds a week easy.
