Daughter had a igg neg and iga positive (strong).

Her doctor wanted further specific celiac blood tests which all came back neg.

What's that mean?

Blood tests are notoriously unreliable. My son and I both tested IGA positive, with negative IGG and TTG, yet we both have Celiac. IGA positive is a "less reliable" indictor for Celiac, because many kinds of inflammation can cause elevated IGA. Does your daughter have symptoms?

It means you should try the diet after all testing is finished. If she is having a biopsy wait until the day that is done and start the diet the minute the test is completed. You don't need to wait on the results and may have your answer by her response to the diet before you even go to the return visit to get them.

Symptoms of my daughter:

when we first got her onto food it was diarhea overload

SHe was/is very skinny. She use to have a pot belly

She looks anemic sometimes

She wakes up in the morning with stomach aches that seem to subside with breakfast

She has had bad allergies that seem to linger

My mom's symptoms - undiagnosed

Just passed away of intestinal cancer at 55

horrible migranes and long sleep patterns

histerectomy at 40

cold sores

bad dental issues (lots of brushing)

lots of tiredness

My symptoms (celiac panel came back normal)

looked like a 6th grader in 10th grade

skinny with belly most of life

Stomach issues

high blood pressure / heart palpulations

crazy headaches

crazy food poisoning or I thought

bad collar bone pain

crazy gerd

I hope you are getting on the diet as well despite those negative blood tests. It sure does look like you are both in the right place. I am sorry about the early loss of your Mom. Since I was finally diagnosed I often think of mine and wonder if she might still be with me if they had figured out how strongly celiac runs in our family. I think a couple of months into the diet both you and your daugther will feel like new people.

We are gluten free from here on out. One thing I've really gotten into as well is PH. I had no idea that a lower PH in the body actually mimics IBS symptoms and can lead to all diseases and cancer. I went to Lowes and picked up a pool test kit. My PH was in the gutter. Even though I was glutten free , I was still eating 100% acid. I'm changing that as well. I think some people who test neg but feel better after losing gluten is because gluten is PEGGED on the acid chart which lowers the PH and makes people sick. The reason everyone feels tired after a thanksgiving meal isn't the turkey, it's the fact that every item on the table is an acid, including the canned veggies.
