Hi all, I am new to this site and am still trying to figure things out. I was diagnosed with celiac almost a year ago and am still trying to get it under control. I have a few questions but I will ask in some other posts.

A sunny California Merry Christmas to all. I am going to the GI doctor for follow up next Wednesday. I was diagnosed with DH in Sept this year, with a positive biopsy. Since then, my first bloodwork showed an IgG of 179. I was just tested again after being 3 months gluten free and my IgG is down to 107. I know the range should be less than 9. My IgA is 24. I just had all the xrays done this week (UGI & small bowel). My concern is, why would I need the biopsy done of my intestines, when I have the positive biopsy of DH and all of the bloodwork shows Celiac? I just want to get some opinions from you before I speak with my doctor about this.

By the way, I felt really bad for several days when I went gluten free. Severe stomach cramps, stayed in bed all day, etc. Is this normal?

Thanks so much for any advice or input, since I am so new with this disease.
