How Effective Is A Diet

13 February 2013 - 07:30 AM

When diagnosed, my Anti-tissue Blood test level was 10. After 5 months my level is now 19. Does that mean my diet is not working well enough?

How quickly will mistakes in a gluten free diet make the antit-tissue level go up? Is a level of 19 very bad?

I thought my diet was working pretty well because I have been feeling good, although occasionally I have problems and I have been eliminating other things from my diet to see if I am also sensitive to something else. But I haven't been able to pinpoint anything yet.

For people who are sensitive to other things, like corn, or lactose, do those things affect the Anti-Tissue blood test level?

Thank you.

Wheat In Nz And Australia Has No Affect On Me

13 December 2012 - 08:18 AM

Hi,
New here.

I am living in USA and have recently been diagnosed with Celiacs, but just before the diagnosis I took a trip to NZ and Australia (4 weeks) and ate all sorts of bread and pastry items but felt fine with no discomfort. At that point I was convinced I couldn't be Celiacs but that's not what my doctor tells me.

Back in USA I am on a gluten-free diet, but if I eat a wheat product I tend to get discomfort the next day.

I recently took another trip to New Zealand and tried the same thing again: ate a lot of wheat products for a week and again felt no reaction.

I am trying to understand my observations and what this means. I have seen articles talking about Dwarf Wheat in USA and I wonder if Australia and NZ have different varieties of wheat that have less reaction (or no reaction in my case). I brought some regular bread mix back with me and plan to do an experiment to try to compare it's affect to a local product.

I would appreciate any advice.
