    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

    Thank you for responding. No I have not been tested for celiac disease. My ths free t3 free t4 were all normal. My reverse t3 was a bit high and my tg antibodies were high. Also I have low blood pressure and low testosterone. The whole reason I went to see the doctor in the first place was because I had nausea and acid reflux for no apparent reason which I hve recently discovered is connected to hashimotos. I have just been to a dentist because I have untreated periodontal disease which we suspect may be causing everything. We are in the process of fixing that as well. So far the gluten free diet along with probiotics and L glutamine are helping a lot with the stomach issues.
    In my saga to get diagnosed, I had an IgA blood test (I had been eating gluten for a few months). It came back negative. I managed to see the dermatologist yesterday (woo hoo!) who said my rash is "consistent with DH" but he would not say it was DH. He did two punch biopsies which will be ready in about a week. My primary care sent me an email saying that because the IgA is negative, I do not have celiac disease. So hoping the biopsy shows something. Why will no one give me a diagnosis??? I'm going out of my mind. I do not want to go gluten free unless I have to because I already have several restrictions on what I can cook for my son with multiple food allergies, and wheat is a big part of his diet (he is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, soy, eggs and sesame). I'm at my wits end.   Thanks for being so supportive everyone!
