In Topic: What's My Next Step?

Thank you so much everyone for your advice! That is one of my concerns, that I don't think I got a full blood panel including, total IgA! I suppose I will email my dr. and ask, but after her last response, I would be happy to never speak to her again!
Since Monday I had decided to just go gluten-free again, even though the thought of not having a legitimate diagnosis and the fear of no one taking me seriously, still bothers me! I like your idea Bartfull! I will just diagnos myself but leave the "self" part out! ;)
The real kicker is when I talked to my mom after I got my bloodwork back. I told her she should consider being tested too, because she and my brother have/had similar symptoms, then she told me that she wished she had known sooner because just a few months ago, her doctor did a routine endoscopy, but of course not checking for Celiac! Goes to show, I don't talk to my mom enough! She goes back to her doctor in a couple of months, and I asked her to look into getting at least the bloodwork done. I guess I'll just go from there and do a gluten challenge down the road if need be.

This seemed to get cut off:

Tissue Transglutaminase IgG:
My result= 0.17 units
Standard range= <.90

Tissue Transglutaminase IgA:
My result: 0.33 units
Standard range= <.90

Gliadin IgA
My result= 7 units
Standard range= <20

Gliadin IgG
My result= 6 units
Standard range= <20

Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy
My result= 16 ng/ml
Standard range= 20-79

I also fasted before my blood test and I'm wondering if that could have affected the results? I'm just so confused and frustrated! I welcome any and all advice, similar stories, support! I feel so alone sometimes! I don't know how much longer I can keep poisoning my body!
