Igm ? I Don't Know Where To Go From Here.

Recommended Posts

I know it's complicated, but is IgM related to Celiac, or is it just IgG and IgA? Been looking through my labs 5 years ago, & my IgM looks to be of specific interest & they didn't test IgG, but I don't know what it means. It was an ELISA test but was performed on kidney cells, I guess.

I'm starting to think that maybe I am Celiac - not that it makes any difference in my life at this point, except to satisfy my curiosity. I'm seriously thinking about gene testing, despite the fact that I've been opposed to it in the past. The curiosity is killing me. I definitely am intolerant or something. Now I just want some answers. By the time I found out about Celiac, I had already been gluten-free for a month.

I'm starting to accept this, but nobody around me really gets what it's like (except my husband - he has to live me). I think I'm probably driving the poor guy crazy, even though he's been sooooo supportive. I just feel really alone in this all of the sudden. Maybe I need to hook up with a support group here. :(

I've been gluten-free for almost a year and have spent the better part of that time trying to convince myself that it's not real & that maybe it'll go away - my posts don't really reflect the denial, because I think deep down, I really knew. That's not working anymore. I've finally reached the point of acceptance, considering the many things I have going on that people with Celiac do. I kept thinking that maybe I was wrong - maybe it's coincidence that I feel bad and get heart issues, etc. when I eat wheat stuff. It's not.

I know nothing about IGm but have seen it on many websites i have looked at today. I didnt read them tho. I just wanted to tell you that most times if we feel it is true with this disease then it is true. Maybe post the Igm and i can help you look it up.

I think I might be wrong about the ELISA thing. I think that was for HEP C (neg). These lab results are crazy hard to figure out if you're not in the biz.

Test was done under Immunoflourescence Microscopy - whatever that is :huh: on glomeruli (kidney membrane cells). Nevermind . This is a bother. It just says 2+ staining & I don't think anybody here can tell me what that means.

I really appreciate that you want to help, Paula, but I think I'd be wasting your time. I just need to take a deep breath and chill out.
