Hi

Anti-tTG IgA has INcreased since I started the gluten free diet. Meanwhile, anti-deaminated gliadin DEcreased significantly. What does this mean?

Perhaps you are still using dairy products? tTG can react to things other than gluten, such as dairy. DGP is pretty specific to celiac.

For breakfast I usually eat bread (with wheat starch) and gouda cheese. I drink perhaps a glass of milk containing probiotics every other day. Kan I keep the wheat starch? Have to stop drinking milk / skip the cheese?

Drop the wheat. None should be in your diet if you are gluten free. :blink:

Definitely. Seeing as how you're not even supposed to be eating anything that has a bread crumb or dusting of flour, I can't believe you're eating wheat starch, even if that's supposed to mean no protein (gluten) in what you're eating. That's just asking to not get better.

You may or may not want to cut out dairy too. If you don't, keep it in mind for future if you aren't getting better.

yeah, skip the wheat starch. It may have been "certified" gluten free, but at what level? If you are very sensitive, it may well be too much, kinda like the shared line issues.

I´m cutting out wheat starch entirely now, eating tortilla de patatas, omelettes, pancakes and rice for breakfast. Time to get better:)

Still, the bakery claims the bread is without gluten even though it contains wheat starch. They say it is according to new standards where food has to be entirely gluten free to be called gluten free. How is this possible? Can I trust it?

With Codex wheat starch they claim that the processing entirely removes the gluten. Many are dubious of this scientific claim :blink: Many of the super sensitive celiacs claim that they react to it. You will have to test for yourself and see if eliminating it helps you.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
