I wasn't completely gluten free when my iron levels started dropping so I wanted to test for celiac again because of my iron issues.The lab would only test TtG IgG and DGP I gG and those were negative. I"m still eating gluten because i want to see what my iron levels will be at my appt. next month, and if my doc feels I need a biopsy, I won't have to wait.
sorry it took so long to get these pics up. Even if it isn't dh, then I hope someone has had this type of rash before or has seen it and knows what it is! Here's the link, http://s1371.photobu...?sort=3&page=1
IrishHeart, I'm just confused that my iron level is within range but the panel(transferrin, TIBC and %saturation indicate iron deficiency.
cyclinglady, I only have milk in my coffee...1-2 cups a day. Otherwise I drink almond milk and don't eat a lot of products that have milk. I do understand how milk can affect absorption. My oldest ds was a huge milk drinker and ended up with iron deficiency. I do exercise but not intensly and don't run. hate it! Also, I don't take the iron supplement with vit. c because it has heme and nonheme iron. jThe heme based iron enhances iron absorption and it states on the bottle no vit. c needed for absorption. Should I still take it anway?
Thank you both for taking the time to respond to my question.
hm, well labs do show iron deficiency anemia(had the full iron panel done) but per my last blood test there are things that make me go hmmmmm....such as RDW being normal when in IDA it's usually high. Iwill talk to my doc about this at my next appt. thanks!!
