New - Testing Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is my first post here. I'm 24, hypothyriod (Hashi's - on Armour) and have B12 deficiency (taking injections) and low ferritin (storage iron - took supplements). I've always had alot of stomach issues. I asked my doctor if celiac was a possibility and he did a blood test, but it was just for wheat or gluten allergy and they came back negative. So I went to a gastroenterologist and asked about it and she said it was possible and did an endoscopy with biopsies, which was negative but did show gastritis and esphogitis. She said I definitely did not have celiac. So I just tried to ignore things again.

Nine days ago I decided to try a gluten free diet to see if it would make a difference. At first I couldn't tell a difference, but I'm feelin sick right now, and I think it's because I might have accidentally had some gluten. I ate at a church picnic - plain salad with gluten-free dressing (I read the label), but might have had CC issues? Is this possible that I would already experience nausea and "stomach distress" from CC when I was eating pasta and bread 9 days ago?

Also, I thought I'd go back to my doctor this next week and ask for the celiac panel to look at antibodies since that was never done (I've learned alot reading online the past week). If it was done this next week, do you think the results would be accurate given that I'll have been off gluten for under two weeks?
