In Topic: Newbie - Could I Be Celiac?

04 March 2013 - 03:22 PM

Hello all.

Sorry for the late update.

My bioscopys came back negative so im not Celiac, however they did find a problem with my lower esophageal sphincter being weak causing Acid Reflux.

Basically they have told be all my other problems are down to lifestyle and work.

When i mentioned NCGI they looked at me as if i had 3 heads (so looks like they've never heard about it).

So im now trying to eat healthier and get more sleep. Ive also started taking St. John's Wort to try and give me a kick of motivation.

As for exercise, Im off to a spa in April with the fiance to be (Gonna pop the question there) and hopefully ill get to kick start myself at there gym.

Failing all this if I don't feel any better in a 6 months ill try going gluten free.

 

Many thanks for all the advice. 

Alan

Just so you know if you were on omeprazole even 3 weeks before the H. Pylori test it will more than likely give a false negative (unless you are lucky).


Even from a Bioscopy? Alan

Hello all, Update: I got to see a GI consultant last week and had an endoscopy today. Dont know what i was worried about, got the throat spray and all went well. Just waiting on the biospy results. Their initial diagnosis is that have a weak lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and a slow emptying Gastric/Stomach. So just waiting on bioscopy results. Alan

Hi guys. My results came back negative my TTG IGA is 0.4 U/ml. They say they only test my EMA levels if my TTG level is above 4. I have now got an appointment through my private health insurance to see a GI consultant tomorrow evening. Keep you informed. Alan

Hey guys. tried another BioCard test today. This time getting a good blood sample. I got a very faint line on the test section. So going buy the instructions (any hint of a line is a positive) it looks like I could have celiac disease. Alan
