Do You Ever Cheat On Your Gluten Free Diet?

25 September 2012 - 06:31 PM

I was just told today that my biopsies were positive. I'm trying to think about my life without a lot of my favorite foods. I know i'm going to go gluten free but seriously, is it a HUGE deal if i cheat once in awhile? Like even once a month on a favorite meal out, etc. I have no symptoms by the way. Thanks

It's Official, I Have Celiac Disease

25 September 2012 - 02:34 PM

I had an endoscopy yesterday. My doctor just called and all six biopsies were positive!! I'm nervous and kind of sad about having to go gluten free but am excited to see if i feel better. I'm sure i will have a ton of questions for all of you! I guess the next step is meeting with a dietician. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Endoscopy On Monday

20 September 2012 - 06:05 PM

Hello. I have hashimoto's and also was having a lot of bloating. My endo ran some celiac labs and my tgg iga was 37 and my ttg igg was 39. Greater than 10 is positive.

I have my endoscopy on monday. What should i talk to the gastro about prior to the procedure eg. How many biopsies, etc. Thank you!!!!!"

Not Many Symptoms

11 September 2012 - 11:04 AM

Do any of you have celiac without many symptoms? I had positive tgg iga and igg and am awaiting an endoscopy. I have bloating, fatigue, but that's really about it. I'm wondering if my biopsy will even show anything since i don't have many symptoms. Thanks

Lab Question

09 September 2012 - 06:31 PM

Hello! I have hashimoto's and asked my doctor to check labs for celiac. My ttg iga and ttg igg both cameback positive at 39 and 37, greater than 10 is positive. I'm going for an endoscopy in two weeks. I've heard that having an autoimmune thyroid condition could maybe cause a false positive lab. I'm just wondering what your labs were and if your biopsy ended up being positive or not. Thank you so much!
