Do I Fit The Celiac Profile?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a 23 year old female:

By Blood-

Vitamin D almost undetectable

Deficient in B12, B3 & Pantothenate

Ferritin 26, Red Blood Cells & Hematocrit High


FSH & LH seem to stay the same, never going up or down

IGF-1 Normal

IGFBP3 Normal

By 24 hour Urine-

Low Estrogen

Low Progesterone

Low HGH (Human Growth Hormone)


I also did IgE & IgG4 for Gluten & Gliadin, but did it fasting (I have read you are supposed to eat Gluten to get an accurate result) as my other blood work required fasting. I tested right at the Moderate line for Gluten & Just over for Gliadin. It was done through Meridian Valley if anyone is familiar.

I also have Aquagenic Urticaria. I break out in hives with contact with water. I also break out in hives with friction/stimulation/pressure such as massage.

Might I be Celiac?

12 hours of not eating won't effect the Celiac blood tests. What they mean is you can't be on a gluten free diet. You need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet for the weeks, maybe months, before the test.

The tests that RMJ mentioned are for antibodies -- not allergy testing. There are over 300 symptoms for celiac disease. You could have it. Your labs? Who knows. Lots of people are low in Vitamin D (depends on where you live) and many have low ferritin (e.gg. Heavy periods). Testing for antibodies and then obtaining intestinal biopsies can confirm celiac disease.

The University of Chicago's celiac website is a great place to research symptoms and testing requirements.

Hope this helps.
