In Topic: Clear Scope But Still Raised Antibodies

08 October 2009 - 01:34 AM

Which specific blood test is showing raised antibodies? Do not assume you are being glutened or cc'd because of elevated antibodies......it depends on which ones are elevated. Other autoimmune diseases may cause an elevated tTg also and if a person has multiple diseases, your antibodies may not come down into the normal range. Is it the tTg or the anti-gliadin test which is spiked?

Thanks for your reply. It's the tTg that's raised. That was the only one they checked. Isn't that just relevant to coeliacs? I do have autoimmune hypothyroidism as well.

Hi there!

I'm the same with fruit juices or cordials and tend to drink just water, but I could also do with more calories, so I know a bit about where you're coming from.

Can your son tolerate fruit at all? If so, you could try making a smoothie with rice milk and a bit of fruit.

Alternatively, how is he with veggies? Could you try veggie juices or even stock or soup? Or maybe something like bovril or another yeast extract type drink?

It's really difficult thinking of something that's quick and easy, which is what you need when you're a mum with a young child.

Another thought: my son likes fruit tea (cooled down a lot). That would be unsugary and you could add honey if your son tolerates it to add calories and sweetness.

All the best.

Thanks Jin! DS was desperate to have a brother, but as soon as he knew it was a sister, he was very excited. He thinks all the pink stuff that's descending on us is very cute! He has told all his class at school in great detail about his baby sister :D He's very amused about the size of my tummy as well :lol:

Hi Jin

I've just been trying to update my avatar with a scan photo, but it doesn't seem to be appearing on my posts, even though it's in my controls. Hmmm...will try to oblige when I can work out what's going on!
