I uploaded a scan of my blood results from my doctor with no explanation of what they mean. Are these the blood tests done to detect Celiac? I've had diarrhea for 35 days so I'm getting desperate for answers!

Thanks in advance.

No, it looks like they were testing you for a strain of yeast that is common in Chron's Disease (Link for Saccharomyces Cerevisiae), and for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (which is different from Irritable Bowel Disease). They did not - by those tests anyway - test you for Celiac Disease.

I agree with Tiffany here, they look to have been testing you for inflammatory bowel diseases such as Chron's or Ulcerative Colitis.

My good friend had similar symptoms - she was 24 when they began all of the testing and was told it was Ulcerative Colitis. Her boyfriend has Chron's. She had Diarreah almost every time she ate, and would occasionally have blood. He , with the Chron's, has much more bleeding than she ever had with hers. They both had colonoscopies to confirm diagnosis though.

I will tell you that when all of my issues first started that I had about 6 weeks of diarreah. I was down to drinking only ensure. I went from 102 to 92 lbs. in a month and that's when they started looking into issues. The diarreah ended up stopping, and for the past 3 years I have leaned more towards constipation.

Just wanted to let you know what I did during that 6 weeks. I was down to drinking ensure to keep up with vitamins and nutrients, and at times could stomach plain white rice or applesauce. I was very nauseus with anything else probably because I was eating things my body was clearly telling me to avoid. Maybe you could try something very plain like plain grilled chicken, white rice with a little butter and salt, and a steamed veggie and see how that goes for a few days then gradually increase and expand your diet to include more things slowly. For a while after the ensure I could lonly do that combo of food until my tummy calmed down a bit.

Hope everything turns out for you!
