In Topic: How Much "cheating" Is Allowed ?

Sweettea - If I may, what tests did you have ?  For me, both the Deamidated Gliatin Abs IgA test and the t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA came back negative. It was the tgG IgG test that came back high. And that was later supported by a dramatic change in my Vitamin D levels - from 115 to 35 after approx. 65 days gluten free. PS Does anyone here know whether the innaccurate results of my IgA tests could have anything to do with my having very low Immunoglobuliina A levels ?


I've had them all done including an endoscopy with biopsy which is why I'm leaning towards gluten intolerance.

Hey Sweettea!  Migraines and skin issues are closely associated with celiac disease.  Are you aware of dematitis herpetiformis?


Hi! I just recently heard of it through my gluten research. I was diagnosed with lichen plants and lichen nitidus. I definitely don't look like I have the herpetiformis going on but google I'd probably showing me the worst case scenarios.

It all depends on how much you want to suffer and how much damage you want to risk doing to your body.    And allergy is something else entirely, and not to be taken lightly, as allergies can become worse and life-threatening.

I guess I am just not really sure what is going on with me. Tests are negative and no GI problems. Went gluten free anyways to see if it helps with my chronic migraines and autoimmune skin issues. Not sure if that is allergy or intolerance.


In Topic: Gluten Free For 3 Days...feeling Sick

Welcome to the board.

 

It could be a gluten withdrawal or it could be a stomach bug. After only three days, it could also still be the results of your last "glutenous" meal.  My guess is it's probably withdrawal. There are many who go through a period of feeling worse for a few weeks before we feel better.  I think you'll just have to be patient and wait it out unless symptoms get very bad or unsusal, in which case you might want to check with a doctor.

 

Best wishes.  I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks! I just find it odd since I didn't have gi issues while eating gluten.

What if you aren't celiac, and just "possibly" gluten intolerant/allergic?
