  1. I should have mentioned that I have been to an allergist who tested for a large number of items, and nothing showed up.
  2. I have officially been gluten-free for two years. When diagnosed, doctor said my numbers were off the charts and were the highest he's seen. I have never cheated once (with gluten) and am beyond careful (cross-contamination, etc.). But two years later, I still feel horrible. Stomach almost always hurts; pretty much every meal goes right through me. Not fun. Has anybody else experienced the same thing where you just don't feel any better? If so, have you had further tests done that have showed anything? Thanks.
  3. Have gone by the book as far as due diligence of keeping gluten free. Felt better for a bit, but brutal this past month.
  4. Thanks for the input thus far. I should've mentioned that I've been completely dairy free as well.
  5. Hi folks. I actually got diagnosed with Celiac 3.5 months ago, but just had my first follow up visit with my gastro today. He showed me the original blood results as follows: Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody, IGA Between 5-8 is normal. My level was over 100 (off the charts - the highest the doctor has ever seen he said) Gliadin Antibody, IGA Between 11-17 is normal. My level was 70. Gliadin Antibody, IGC Between 11-17 is normal. My level was 64. I have been 100% gluten free (to the best of my knowledge...we've been incredible anal about it). But I am still feeling absolutely horrendous. Stomach pains, DD, you name it. I was wondering if anybody out there had numbers similar to mine and can share their healing experience with me. I'm running out of patience. Many thanks. Woodrow
  6. I just want to say thanks to all the people who have responded to my post. Between my wife going above and beyond the call of duty to help me and the support I know I'll have at this site, I'm sensing that things may be ok after all. I am in definite mourning over the loss of several food items that I love...specifically a fine microbrew and a fresh bagel. But I am assuming once I start feeling better, it will be easier to do without these items. Thanks again to all. Woodrow
  7. Good morning fellow Celiacs. After a year of feeling lousy and not knowing why, I was just diagnosed with Celiac yesterday. The doctor said my score was "off the charts". My wife and I are absolutely overwhelmed at what lies ahead of us. In my search for information last night, I came across this forum. It's somehow comforting to know that there are so many of you out there who have not only experienced what I am about to go thru (I am currently in the anger stage, with a hint of denial thrown in), but who have obviously adjusted very well to their new lifestyle. I'm not looking for any advice as I'm sure all of my questions have been asked before and I'll search for the answers. But I do have one question: Did you go to a dietician for professional guidance after your diagnosis and if so, was it worth it? I'll be talking to you...
