Hi,

My Dr. put me on gluten-free diet and I have had a complete turnaround. This test was done BEFORE I STARTED THE GLUTEN-FREE DIET. He says I have celiac but the tests look negative to me?

LabCorp is the name of the lab

Antigliadin Abs,IgA (U/mL 0-4)

RESULT<1

Negative 0-4

Positive >4

Antigliadin Abs,IgG (U/mL 0-9)

RESULT <1

Negative 0-9

Positive >9

t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA (U/mL 0-3)

RESULT <1

Negative 0-3

Weak Positive 4-10

Positive >10

t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG (U/mL 0-5)

RESULT<1

Negative 0-5

Weak Positive 6-9

Positive >9

Endomysial Antibody IgA

RESULT Negative

Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum (mg/dL)

RESULT 159

Normal 70-400

My Dr. also did a Comp. Metabolic Panel that was all normal ranges ( some of the numbers are just barely normal(low normal?) or close to above normal).

I posted here when I first found out about this and I am doing all the stuff that I was told to do... except the vitamins. My Dr. & Nutritionist said no vitamins until later. My Dr. was amazed a couple of weeks ago and said he has never seen such a drastic change in someones health so quickly. Do I have Celiac or not? If it is something else I want to find out what it really is.

P.S.

I just had lunch...gluten-free pasta, albacore tuna, Grapeseed Veganaise, & Mrs.Dash....My belly swelled up like I am pregnant and I'm all foggy headed and shaky.....What the heck is wrong! I called my Dr. because I know what's coming next...I go in tomorrow at 8:30...SOY?!? Maybe? Any Ideas?

Soy is my though too. I looked at your signature and I'm allergic to dairy and egg and also soy. I've read that the dairy and soy allergy tend to go hand-in-hand.

It's terrible to be allergic to so many things - I'm not sure if I'm celiac or not, but I am allergic to wheat, rye, egg, dairy, soy and garlic. Really cuts down on food choices.

Hope that helps a little and that you get it figured out soon.

Beth,

Thank you for your reply :) . I went to the Dr. and they did some more tests but said that because it is a recent diagnosis I will probably make mistakes and have problems for awhile yet. I asked about the Negative test and he said it doesn't matter, he would rather I stayed off of wheat permanently. I would have to continue eating wheat to get a positive test, and he said that would not be wise. Because of your post I asked about soy and he said I could try to stop soy and then reintroduce it one product at a time if I wanted to, but that dairy and soy are very different and he doesn't believe that is the problem. I may try it anyway because I noticed today that my tofu has "GLUCONOLACTONE" which I need to look up! Thanks again for your post, I hope you are doing well and that you have a great weekend. Pamela

Found the definition on the manufactures website...........

2. What is gluconolactone (GDL) and is it gluten-free?

Gluconolactone (GDL) is a gluten-free, fermented food starch derived from corn. Once processed into a pure white, crystalline powder, it carries none of the characteristics of corn. It has been used to make cottage cheese and bread for many years. The final product can be found in its natural state in bee's honey. When a small amount is mixed with calcium chloride, these salts act to coagulate the soymilk into creamy silken tofu.

    This is good advice. Some restaurants offer gluten-free menus or mark items with “GF” on their regular menu, and I try to eat at such places. I still talk to the manager when I order to be sure.
