Help! Have Gi Symptoms Plus Strange Blood Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Food logging since last May.

GI symptoms after eating breads, pasta, pizza, baked goods, BEER!

27 years old

AST: 48 (H)

ALT: 74 (H)

Bilirubin: 1.8 (H)

LDL: 271 (H)

Total Chol: 355 (H)

Hemoglobin: 15.6(H)

Hematocrit: 46.2(H)

Doctor reduced my insistence on wheat intolerance to simply "IBS and eat some probiotic yogurt". Which I had already told him that I do...

Took more bloodwork for liver. Scheduled a liver ultrasound.

Scared. Mad. Confused.

Is my body not trying to fight off of all this gluten I have been eating?

My dietitian firmly believes I have at least a gluten intolerance, if not celiac.

What should I do next?

Ask the Dr. to run the full Celiac panel? Tell him it's worth "ruling out"? You might test positive and you'll have your answer. If you test negative, be aware that 20-30% of us do. Your unusual blood tests seem like testing is warrented?

If you're tested and get a negative result, please try going completely gluten-free for at least 3 months and see how you feel?

I just lost a cousin to liver failure. She was only 41. From talking to the family she suffered with many Celiac symptoms for years, but they never thought to test her!

Insist on celiac testing, full panel. If this doctor won't do it, find one who will.

You should also have your thyroid function checked out, and rule out the common stuff like diabetes.
