  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thanks amber, it does sound like the maltesers and tim tams will be out soon LOL. Thanks for the info about the Coeliac society - that will be very helpful! A label reading course sounds like a great idea.
  3. No, that is totally fine... 'rat hole' away!!! :-) This discussion is really helping me! And thanks for that link to the archives, momma goose, will have a look at that a bit later.
  4. I'm a complete newbie at this, but I think what I meant was that my total IgA was just above the normal range. Not that I know what that means anyway! :-) Aaah the learning curve of a (possible) new condition!
  5. Very, very good advice MG, thanks! I am so glad I found this community. Thanks again for your responses - I am feeling a bit calmer about it all now :-)
  6. Thanks momma-goose and j_mommy for the very quick replies. I don't have a copy of the results with me anymore but the total IgA level was just in the positive range. I guess I'm just afraid that if I go to the GP later this week and they say everything looks normal with the biopsy I'll just be sent home. I know shouldn't be catastrophising it before it happens (but that's part of my nature, LOL) but the wait for the results is so awful.
  7. Hi all, I'm new round here and have a quick question. (Apologies if it has been answered before). I've got positive blood test results for celiac, but am awaiting the results of my biopsy and of course all sorts of scenarios are running through my head. I'm wondering - in the case that my biopsy doesn't show celiac - why would someone test positive to celiac in blood results and it now show up through the biopsy? Would it mean, perhaps, gluten intolerance instead of celiac? Many thanks in advance! :-)
  8. Hi everyone, My first post here - glad to see some Aussies and Kiwis around. I am 35 year old from Melbourne, anxiously awaiting the results of my biopsies done last week after turning up positive serology for coeliac.... probably won't know anything until early next week. I can't stand the wait - just wanna know one way or the other, although I'm bracing myself for a positive result. My symptoms are chronic constipation and bloating, along with very occassional abdo pain after eating. Needless to say once I heard I had to have the gastroscopy to find out for sure I went on a complete wheat and gluten binge just in case I have to give up Maltesers and Tim Tams :-) Feeling v.bloated as a result!!!
