New Here... Negative Results?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! This is my first post here and I have a few questions. I was diagnosed with anemia (Iron) and started taking supplements. I got retested and mi TIBC levels grew larger while everything else dropped. My ferratin level is 8, really low. I just got my Celiac panel test done at Kaiser and it came back negative. I still think this is wrong, but I have no clue. I also have hidradenitis suppurativa. I did some reading on that and it said that many sufferers of HS are gluten intolerant. Could I still be Celiac? I also read somewhere that kaiser's levels were high, is this true?

Kaiser only tests those 2 for celiac? Yikes I thought most places did 5 now. Actually even they did all 5 and all were negative, it's no guarantee that gluten isn't the problem. This place has no shortage of sero-negative ppl whose greatest health stride was going gluten-free.

So yes, you could be celiac still, or NCGI (non-celiac gluten intolerant, which may as well be the same thing from the patient point of view).

I suppose you've been reading other threads - tons of great info here.

Are those the only tests they did?

They have done insufficient testing.

You need a total serum IgA, and gliadin antibodies (deamidated gliadin peptides IgG, IgA). They also should do anti-EMA.

Are you having symptoms?

I know right? I thought there should be more tests done. I asked my GP to order me the extra panels along with the test to show if I am deficient in any other minerals. I suffer from anxiety, eczema, abnormal periods, and am lactose intolerant. I do get mild cramps when I eat bread, and those last for a couple hours. I also wake up nauseous every morning. IDK if that is a symptom or not.

All of those can be symptoms, I'd be getting a full panel done, although as tom said, this place is full of sero-negative people (myself included) who gluten is deffo a problem for.

well, some people are nauseated all the time. Waking up nauseated can be a sign of many things, including stomach ulcers and stuff. Has the Dr asked you any questions relating to that? There are over 300 associated symptoms with Coeliac disease - which is why its so hard to diagnose, some people have none, some have few, some have many etc.
