Possibly Celiac

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am a 31 year old women. I went to see my doctor due to a vast array of symptoms, including fatigue, brain fog, obesity with Inability to lose weight, Diarrhea, upset stomach, odd sensations in my hands and feet, severe migraine's with stroke symptoms, feeling worse when I exercise, bad memory, depression, anxiety, the list goes on. Really I have a complete feeling of being unwell. My doctor ran a huge set of blood and urine tests on me. The labs show that I have a severe Vitamin D deficiency, a 14, My doctor said that should be at least 50. Also, My liver results came back high. My doctor has scheduled me for a liver ultrasound. All thyroid tests came back as normal. My tissue transglutaminase came back at 12. From what I have found searching around the internet, it seems that anything over a 9 is a high positive for celiac disease. I am still waiting to hear back from my doctor. I am hoping for some insight on what all of this means. Any information or advise will be very appreciated.

There should be a scale associated with your TTG numbers. Different labs use different ranges, so the numbers in and of themselves are impossible to evaluate without the range.
