In Topic: Do You Ever Cheat On Your Gluten Free Diet?

27 September 2012 - 04:33 AM

Thank you so much for all your replies!! I really needed to hear your opinions about it. That helped thanks! For whoever it was that asked about my symptoms, i just have bloating/gas. I had my doctor do the blood tests which were positive and that lead to the endoscopy.

I'm an RN so i do realize how important it is to stick to the diet. It's just so hard to imagine a couple little bites can cause such a response in your body!! Crazy!

Well it's done!!! Was super easy, completely knocked out so didn't know what was going on. I guess my intestine looked normal but she took six biopsies. She also said where my esophagus meets my stomach was a bit abnormal so she took a biopsy to check for barrets disease.

I asked about what if my biopsy was negative but my labs positive. She said they could check another blood test, i think the genetic one and i also could try a gluten free diet to see if the ttg iga comes down.

Thank you all!! I plan on talking with the doctor before and making sure she takes six biopsies. Leaving soon, i'm nervous!!!!

In Topic: Not Many Symptoms

Thanks for your input. Maybe i do feel symptoms sometimes and i just don't relate them to gluten. This afternoon i felt like just crap. So tired, headache, foggy. And i did have a bunch of wheat thins with lunch so maybe it was related.
