Positive Blood Tests And Celiac Gene

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

About five years ago I tested through enterolab and found that I have the HLADQ8 gene and there were antibodies in my stool. The blood tests and the biopsy were negative. I stopped eating gluten.

I just had blood work done again and I have antibodies to gluten and gliaden as well as tissue transglutaminase. I have been going out to dinner occasionally so I guess that there was cross contamination. I also wear lipstick and I didn't realize there was gluten in that.

Does the tissue transglutaminase mean that I have celiac? I have lost 10 pounds without trying and I have increased mast cells in my gut. I am going to have another endoscopy since a capsule endoscopy about a month ago showed some ulcers in the small intestine.

Thanks,

June

Many people will say that a positive blood test means Celiac disease.

If you feel better when you don't eat gluten, you should remove it from your diet regardless of what the tests show.
