  1. i just had a series of blood tests, my IGG was at 36 and then an endoscopy biopsy was negative and the doctors have NO answers other than to take probiotics... does anyone have experience with this? It is so FRUSTRATING!
  2. I just got back test results and my doctor really wasn't much help in letting me know what they mean. He referred me to a GI to talk with him. My results are: IGA positive, IGG Negative, Transgluten Negative He said if my IGG were positive it would be a more clear sign of Celiac but the IGA is not as reliable. What does this mean ? I feel like he is speaking in a different language...
  3. I had the specific antibody blood tests for Celiac - I can't remember the names, but there were 2 - do the blood tests come back negative and you can still be positive with the biopsy?
  4. I was just looking through this forum because I was tested on Friday for Celiac Disease and I am not sure that i have it, but it is all that I can think about. I have been having trouble with digestion for about 7 years now, that I can remember. I am 27 and this started getting bad when I was a junior in college. Lately my stomach troubles have been getting worse with pain after I eat and constipation and alternating diarrhea. I went to an internist at the urging of my family and he did a bunch of blood work and found nothing. It wasn't until my mother went out to eat with friends and a person they were with had Celiac. She called me to tell me about it and when I got online I felt like this was what has been wrong with me. I have had migranes diagnosed before and spent several years in college at the doctor with "tension headaches" and was tested for Mono and meningitis several times all negative. I have also had trouble with canker sores and cavities, but other than that and IBS like symptoms, I am healthy. I maintain a healthy weight, have run half marathons, work out and lead a pretty normal life, other than having to run to the bathroom quickly a lot. I am dying to get the results back so that I can either know for sure this is the cause of what is wrong with me or try to figure it out in some other way. I don't really know what to think. My family doesn't want me to jump to conclusions on this, but it is all I can think about! Not sure that I even need responses, I just wanted to talk to people who may know what I am going through...
