Topics I've Started

Seen At Cleveland Clinic For Follow Up

08 September 2009 - 05:46 PM

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in July after having positive blood work and a positive EDG. I have strictly followed gluten-free diet. I research and constantly read about this disease. I have not once eaten anything that I haven't researched and made sure there was no gluten in it. I do however eat out 3 times a week but order foods from a gluten-free menu. I wanted to get an evaluation from the cleveland clinic digestive clinic. I went there on friday of last week. I felt I got excellent care. I saw two physicians and a dietician. Multiple labs were drawn. The physician contacted me today and said my TTG was higher than before. It was 28 in July and now its 38 and my vitamin D level was 22. I was placed on vit d 50,000 units weekly for 8 weeks. She also said she would recheck my TTg in a few months. The only thing I can think of would be I took Augmentin for a sinus infection last week. I had to stop in the middle of treatment because I was developing the Celiac s/s I had before. I really work hard to eat all of the right foods. Not sure what I am doing wrong???

Please Help Need Someone To Read This Biopsy Result

29 July 2009 - 02:42 AM

Here is the exact info from the report

Duodenal biopsy
Benign Duodenal Mucosa with MODERATE villous blunting and increased chronic inflammation of the Lamina propria.
Comment:
The villous architecture is moderately blunted and the lamina propria expanded by an increased compliment of mononuclear cells, to include plasma cells. Acute cryptitis or neutrophils are not noted. Eosiophils are not a significant component of the infiltrate. While few, scattered intraepithelial lymphocytes are present, they are not substantially increaseed. This finding is nonspecific, could be obsrved in treated malabsorption syndromes. Clinical correlation will be required.

*** I was on a gluten free diet three weeks prior to the biopsy and continue a gluten free diet.

I Had My Endo Today,, Positve Blood But Was gluten-free Prior To Biopsy

23 July 2009 - 12:58 PM

I had my biopsy for Celiac Disease today. The path won't be back for 10 days but the doctor said he saw two erosive areas in my stomach and biopsied but he tested for H plyloris. He also found alot of redness on the duodenum. He said he did not see indications on Celiac disease. I was only a strict gluten free diet for almost 4 weeks. Would it really show much if I have been compliant that long. My labs were high and with a position EMA. I was extremely sick when I was on gluten, so the MD left me off the gluten for the test. I still don't think MDs know enough about it because he said maybe we can do a trial of gluten later. I told him I would never touch it again. I thought the way I feel off the gluten and the positve antibodies and the high antigen will make the diagnosis???
