I wish! I got the flu this winter as well as a couple of colds. I do have 3 lids, the youngest in preschool, so there's always a lot of germs around. Lol

Hey again ? It's a start, but I so wish they'd done the whole panel. Some of us, myself included, test negative to the TTG-IgA. I was positive on the DGP only. I wonder if your insurance will only cover those 2? Regardless, get them done as soon as you can! Do you have a walk in lab where you live? If so, go tomorrow. Then you'll be a step closer to getting answers. Good luck and keep us posted!

I totally agree...this board is awesome! The people on here have been there for me through everything and it has helped so much! I don't think antihistamines would affect the test at all. I take an antihistamine daily as well for horrendous allergies.

glutenfreegirlfriend, I hope you are still following this thread. The vomiting bile and unintended weight loss can be a sign of bile reflux. Here is a NYtimes article on it. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html here is thread about it. Getting completely over bile reflux can be difficult. I hope he finds something that works for him. ***this is not medical advice. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy,

Nope. I got the flu and a cold within a two month span at the end of winter. However, I was battle a tooth infection during that same time period.
