Something to celebrate!!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got my latest TTG blood test result:  0.5 U/mL!!   First time TTG in "normal" range since my diagnosis last fall and adopting a strict gluten-free, 100% "natural" foods diet this past March.   

To be honest, I was bracing myself to be disappointed (again) after my last number (in June) spiked a bit (from 73 to 81).  I thought to myself: "I will be happy if this current test result just shows even a modest downward trend, even if not in the normal range."  I was so surprised to see the numbers FINALLY not only well within the normal range but near ZERO!! that I actually emailed my doctor to make sure I wasn't hallucinating when I read the report....:).

This is the first time since my diagnosis that I feel I have something to really celebrate and give me hope, confidence about the future.  

Just wanted to share with others on the same journey and also give hope to my fellow "newbies" who (like me) were shocked, depressed not only by the initial diagnosis and high TTG numbers but also if their subsequent blood test numbers seem so slow to decline despite a strict, gluten-free diet.
