  1. Hi, I was recently diagnosed with Celiacs from a blood test. My TgA number was really high (80) and my IGA number was normal (2.24). Before that, I also recently was diagnosed with parasites d. fragilis. The antibiotics I took for it didn't seem to do much (my symptoms seemed worse. I had really bad headaches and nausea), but the doctor wanted me to retest before taking more drugs. I'm still waiting for the parasite test to come back, but I think I still have them. Is it possible that I don't actually have Celiac and that the parasites are giving a false positive? Are there other reasons for getting a false-positive? I'd rather have a temporary problem than a permanent one... so i suppose i'm in denial. A while ago someone thought I might have a sensitivity to gluten, so I stopped eating it (as far as I knew). The stomach cramps have not been as bad, but the diarrhea has persisted - it's really fizzy/bubbly, is that typical of Celiac? I have a specialist appointment in about 3 weeks, and I'm told only he can order the biopsy. concerned... Hunger-ian.
