Help With Daughter's Blood Work

28 October 2013 - 02:42 PM

I am no good at reading this lab work stuff.  I should be better...    :(  but I'm not!    Help or feedback? 


Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum           277                 (normal range)  91-414

Endomysial Antibody Iga                    negative           negative

t-Transglutaminase (tTg)                    /2                      0-3



I am reading this as that she is falling smack in the middle??


She was sick for four week.  Severe stomach pains, bloating, back pain. afraid to eat cause she'd be sick, in the ER 3 x's.     You know the story!     Then after being gluten free (in a gluten house) for about a week she was fine.  now she is eating anything she wants and no symptoms.   Go figure!!    Dr told her her gall bladder was probably inflamed.  She has Rheumatoid Arthritis and I really would like her to go G.F. for a bit, just ry it.  But what Mama wants, Mama don't always get!   The "diet" is too hard.  sigh


Thanks for any feedback. 

Responses To "i Have Celiac" Or "i Have Food Allergies" ...... Gotta V...

29 July 2013 - 02:10 PM

After 3+ years I am pretty comfortable with Celiac and the whole taking my own food to friends or if we eat out etc.  The things that still (!!!!) set me on edge is when I nicely say "No thank you, I have Celiac and can't eat gluten" or  (because more people understand this) "No thank you I have a lot of food allergies" is when they respond with "Oh I am so sorry. How hard for you"   I want to respond with "I'm not.  I'm the healthy one"!!!   Grrrr.  Just needed to vent that.     :angry:


And may I vent one more thing?   We are visiting with our BFF's for a week.  My BFF declinded a dinner invitation that had been extended to all of us that she didn't want to attend using me as the excuse.   She told that hostess that because I have celiac it was too hard for me to eat at someone else's home.  That made me so mad!  Let me determine how i can or can't do my food, if I can go to someone's home or not.  Don't use me and my disease because you don't want to do something.  :o


Thank you.  I needed that.  Feeling better now
