Testing In Progess...thoughts?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been very anemic for several years.

After drinking a liquid iron supplement (Floradix) for 6 mnths, my ferritn levels were still significantly low (3mg).

My Dr. wanted to know why I'm not absorbing iron and sent me through a battery of tests.

My Results:

Blood test for celiac = Negative

Blood test for celiac gene = Positive (the common one, 2 I think)

I just had a colonoscpy and endoscopy performed. Biopsies were taken and I have to wait for results.

I do feel like I am sensitive to wheat products (they make me moody and sleepy very fast).

I am a competitive athlete and have always watched what I put in my mouth and how it affects my performance / how I feel.

I personally think I am a dead ringer for Celiac but wanted some other opinions.

Plus, my Dr said I can have the celiac gene but not develop celiac. Is that true?

Thanks in advance!!

Since you have had all the tests done go ahead and go strictly gluten free. You don't have to wait on the test results and there is a chance of a false negative so no matter what the results are you need to try the diet.
