With a result that high it means you are Celiac. If your biopsy results should come back negative do the diet strictly anyway. Damage can be patchy and get missed and positive blood work trumps negative biopsy. Hope you are feeling better soon. Do be sure to read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as that has a lot of good info on what you need to do to say safe.

Can you have antibodies in your blood with a wheat allergy

No an allergy would not cause those antibodies to be high. The small intestine is very big and damage can be easily missed. Do get on the diet strictly and then in 6 months or so get your antibodies retested. They will likely have come down and your symptoms improved.

I agree with Ravenwoodglass.  I also understand your frustration.  😥

The actual proof  is how you may feel on the diet.  Give it a solid six months.

What then get another blood test will I have to be on gluten for that or just get tested

You would not need to be back on gluten for that test as it is to see if the diet is helping bring the antibodies down. That combined with resolution of symptoms is diagnostic and some doctors will give a diagnosis based on the results despite a negative biopsy.

Try and stick with as much whole unprocessed food as you can for now. Veggies, fruits, potatoes, rice, meats and fish etc will help to aid healing. After you are feeling better for a bit than go add in gluten free treats and convience foods. If you haven't been much of a cook before ask and look at the recipe section for ideas. Best to avoid or limit dairy until you have healed and personally I would also avoid soy as those two items are common intolerances for many of us. Add them in when you have been feeing better to make sure you are tolerating. I hope you are feeling better soon but don't get discouraged if you have some ups and downs. Be sure you have checked the Newbie 101 thread as it has a lot of good advice to help keep you safe.

Does anybody have trouble with chicken I did was up all night feeling sick

No, but I might suspect the herbs used to season it.  I have a garlic intolerance that has never resolved.  I once became very ill after consuming copious amounts of delicious gluten-free fried chicken that was garlic free and I made it!   I think sheer gluttony got me.  How was the chicken prepared?  Did you purchase wrapped in the store or was it in a meat case near “stuffed” pork chops that the butcher prepared?

My guess is that the chicken was okay unless you recently developed an intolerance to poultry (unlikely).    Was it packaged in the store or at the factory?   What do you eat with it?  What did you consume during the day or prior day?  Often it can take a while for antibodies to build up.  Not everyone reacts instantly.  

You said you thought you were glutened last week.  If I were glutened, I can expect to have abdominal pain digesting anything, even safe foods for weeks.  As soon as any food hits my small intestine, the pain starts and ends when it exits the small intestine.  I always feel fine in the morning and dread having to start eating.  I eat soft easy-to-digest foods like soups and stews.  It can take a month for me to digest without pain after a glutening.

 When a celiac gets glutened, the reaction does not resolve within a day or so.  No, the body flares-up and the reaction can last for days or weeks (everyone with celiac disease reacts a bit differently).   Does that make sense?  

You could still be reacting to your exposure from last week which is already adding fuel to the fire (your TTG was a 100 when you were diagnosed a month ago) and is still probably elevated (decreasing but not normal).  

Give it more time.  The diet has a steep learning curve and healing does take months and months, if not a year.
