#747539 Waiting For Test Results

Posted by Tarantula44 on 14 November 2011 - 01:45 PM

My IgG, IgM, and IgA levels are all in the normal range. There are still other tests I am waiting to hear back about.
Could those tests be the determining factor? I thought all the Ig factors were what mattered.


I am in in the same boat pretty much. Lots of issues that NO doctor can figure out. Finally a Dr recommended getting checked for celiac. My bloodwork came back negative for celiac. I am convinced at this point that I still may have issues with gluten (and possibly dairy), so I am going on a gluten free diet to figure this out myself. This website and forum have a wealth of info on how to get started and how to look for gluten in foods, recipes, etc. I am going to give it a full 6 months and see for myself if my health issues get better. Maybe this is something you should try. As I have learned from the people on this forum so far, symptoms can take a couple days to a couple months before even noticing a difference (and can also get worse before they're better!). Also, often dairy can act similarly to gluten in people with celiac. Good luck, I know how frustrating it is and I too wished for a positive celiac panel so I could have an answer to my issues. In the long run, we know our bodies better than anyone else, even doctors sometimes.
