I had some labs done, and after being gluten-free for 3 years, some things are changing.
My tTG IgA is very normal! Yeah! It was still abnormal at about a year gluten-free, so I was wondering it it was down yet. It was a 4 with a normal range of 0-14.9 (used to be 0-20). I have this disease firmly under control! Woohoo!
Vitamin A, which was always borderline low to low with vitamins and injections is.... stlll borderline low at 1.5 (1.5-3.5). Absolutely no change and I have stopped worrying about it. Nothing changes that one.
My cholesterol went up! It used to be borderline low and my triglycerides were below normal. Now, my triglycerides are a low normal and the cholesterol is more average. I figured that one would go up. Now I KNOW it had nothing to do with how well l ate. LOL
My blood glucose is normal, though still higher than I would have liked it. Darn sugar...
All my hormones are normal, CBC stuff is all normal. All good.
The only abnormal is my TSH which is at 0.01 with a range of 0.20-4.00. I take natural desiccated thyroid so my thyroid is suppressed. Free T3 was 4.8 (3.5-6.5) and Free T4 was 12.8 (10.0-25.00). Those two aren't as great for me. I was feeling a tad bit off towards the hypo end of things lately, but I don't feel it is enough to increase my meds. If I lose a few, my meds will probably be better matched up to me again. LOL Good enough for now.
So, three years in and looking good.
