  1. My anti-endomysial antibody and transglutaminase blood tests were negative but I tested strong positive for gliadin antibodies. My Enterolab results are: Gluten Sensitivity Stool Test Fecal Antigliadin IgA 38 Units (Normal Range <10 Units) Stool Test for Autoimmune Reaction to Tissue Transglutaminase Fecal Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 33 Units (Normal Range <10 Units) Stool Test for Small Intestinal Malabsorption Microscopic Fecal Fat Score: 287 Units (Normal Range < 300 Units) I guess I'm curious what other peoples' results have been but if I am to trust the Enterolab results I should be on a gluten-free diet. My GI doc, however, doesn't want me to go gluten-free until they get the endoscopic biopsies but I have to wait until she gets back from vacation in three weeks. How have other people tested? TIA, Jason
  2. Thanks to everyone that responded. I called the Univ. Of Chicago celiac disease program and was referred to Dr. Rubin. They were scheduling for him for September so I asked for someone else and got in with Dr. Semran for 7/1 which is pretty good. Unfortunately, I had already started a gluten-free diet but they told me to continue to eat G until I see the doctor. I'm looking forward to seeing someone that knows this disease well. Thanks again, Jason
  3. Hi, I tested positive for Gliadin antibodies (IGA and IGG) but tested in the normal range for transglutaminase. My GP wants me to start on gluten-free diet and my GI doc agrees so I started yesterday. I'm going to continue but I want a second opinion from a doctor experienced in diagnosing and treating celiac disease. I have also tested positive for thryoid antibodies and TSH is sort of high although T4 is still normal. I was very interested to read about the possible connection between celiac disease and Hashimotos. Any advice or referrals would be much appreciated. Thanks, Jason
