Hey powerofpositivethinking, just wondering if you had any news on your results yet? How's the gluten free living going? (:

I was gonna say I don't think you sound like a mess either! I'm just sorry to hear you've even through so much. I too suffer with anxiety, but unluckily not just in the doctors office :P. Please do keep us updated with how the diet is going! And of course when you receive your results. All the best :)

Ah well in waiting for your result too as we share done symptoms. I'm glad all went well though! Can I ask why your follow up is so far off? Does it take a month to check the biopsies? I thought it was about a week?

Hope you're feeling better gluten free now too! Can't wait to try it myself once my referral is over! Lol

In Topic: Posterior Blepharitis

 so I had to lookup your topic thread  :P but when putting it into Google images...I have that right now on my right eye on the upper lid!  They will come and go, and the only way I realize they've returned is my contacts start to hurt.  I can only see them when I stand really close to the mirror, and then I try and pop them with my fingernail.  I only get them on my top eyelid.  Here I thought they were just pimples all this time!  learning something new every day  :)


UC Celiac Center lists them on their symptoms list http://www.curecelia...SymptomList.pdf


Gosh that is one long list!! That's exactly where I've had it both times too, and yeah it is really tiny! I popped it last time, but think I might keep it until I get to see a doc. I dunno if mine is related to celiac as I'm yet undiagnosed, but find it a bit odd that it came up the day after I ate a gluten filled meal lol :P. I only notice a small scratching sensation when I squeeze my eyes shut hard haha. Can I ask, have you been diagnosed?


I had anterior blepharitis (before DX) and it has not recurred in the 2 years of being gluten-free.


Since "itises" mean inflammation,  (and I had/have a bunch of "itises", :unsure:)  I am never surprised when someone reports inflammation anywhere in the body from gluten/celiac.


Ah thanks. & for the little knowledge nugget. Didn't know the 'itises' meant inflammation :P

In Topic: Possible Iga Deficiency?

Ah thanks to the both of you :) I do have another question, say I'm not iga deficient, is it not possible to get a false negative? I've been reading about the biopsy "being the gold standard for testing," so I was just wondering whether this is something I should enquire with the doc about getting?
