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.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
