I have been suffering from fatigue of unknown origin for many years now. I have been to several different specialists and had numerous tests done with no answer. I had digestive issues prior to and following the removal of my gallbladder (it was non functioning). The digestive issues have recently gotten extremely worse - mainly extreme nausea and diarrhea. I was eating Imodium and Zofran like candy so I finally talked to my family practitioner. She treated me for reflux and said I would need to do CT scans and stool studies if things didn't clear up. I don't know what got me thinking about gluten intolerance but I did research and saw that fatigue was a symptom along with others I have been dealing with. So I asked her if that could be possible and she wasn't sure but thought it wouldn't' hurt anything to run the tests. So I had the blood work done.
She said I do not have celiac disease, only non-celiac gluten intolerance.
However, the test results are bothering me. My tTG IgA results were 8 - which was weak positive based on how they are analyzed: Negative is 0-3; Weak Positive is 4-10 and Positive is >10.
They also did tTG IgG, Endomysial Antibody IgA (EMA), Immunoglobulin A QN Serum, Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA and IgG; All these tests were NEGATIVE based on the results.
She told me that my labs would have looked different, including blood count (which was normal), if I in fact had celiac disease.
I am just really confused based on different things I have read, and I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who might have an opinion.
