Wow, thanks for that info! I have been searching for anything I could think of on the net that associated IgG and non-celiac disease. I had a colonoscopy about 1 yr into this and it showed nothing, so my GI said 'IBS'. I will definitely research IBD and see if maybe that could be a possibility. Thank you so much! :)

Thank you so much for the reply. The only problem I would have doing the gluten free diet is that I have been TOTALLY symptom free for 3 weeks now! I keep waiting for something to happen, but it doesn't. I have changed nothing in my diet whatsoever (which accounts for the gained lbs!). I am taking no medication, doing nothing different at all. I used to have daily headaches, dry mouth, daily diarrhea (multiple times), and had lost 10 lbs in 4 yrs. Now I have nothing. The headaches, dry mouth, diarrhea-it's all gone. No cramps, no rumbles, nothing. That is why I am so confused. If I have celiac, how can the symptoms just disappear? With no diet change or no medication? I can't find anything on the
internet that comes even remotely close to explaining this. Anyone with a theory?

I should also mention that in 4 years time, I have never had more than 1 day without an 'episode'.

I thought I needed to correct something I said in my original post. My IgA was NOT positive. It was negative (8), it was my IgG that had a weak positive (23). I know this might change things. I am almost sure several other things could cause a positive on the IgG. Thanks!

Hello again! I'm hoping Wish will find this again, or maybe someone who can tell me what this means. I went today with the list provided by Wish to get more blood drawn for additional tests (I had no idea what test he had done). Everything tested well within normal limits except the AGA-IgA, and it was only 23 (20-30 indicates a weak positive). He is going to do more testing, including the ones mentioned by Wish (the 2 that are recommended). So does this mean anything to anyone? Or not until I have more info on the other tests? I won't have those back until Friday at the earliest. Thanks for any help you can give!

Thank you so much! That is the exact info I needed. I've spent a couple of days now researching the gluten-free diet, just to try and prepare myself for the changes I know will be ahead. I personally have no doubt that this is celiac disease. I vaguely remember my exMIL going through the diarrhea and weight loss for a long time and then finding out that it was celiac disease. Her mother also had it. That has been in the back of my head for a while now. I should have been a little more aggresive investigating it, but like I said-I had no idea the devastation caused by the disease. I thought it was only inconvience. Boy, was I wrong. I'll be calling my dr. Monday to set up one of the sets that you listed. And thank you again!
