  1. When I am reading this is also has a couple of other things on there: Tissue Transglut IgA & IgG TTG-IgA <1.2 TTG-IgG <1.2 It also said on there Normal serum protein electrophoresis Would these tests change if when they took the blood I wasn't eating that much gluten? Should I have it done again and eat what I KNOW makes me sick? I just feel like everything I have read about Celiac sounds like what I have. I also just had a baby and was told that they found abnormal antibodies. I am waiting to get those results. I am willing to go gluten free, but it is a hard lifestyle change if I am not 100% sure that I have it. It is also a hard lifestyle change because I already can not eat dairy. Any advise is helpful! Thanks, Ashley
  2. TP: 6.6 ALBUMIN: 4.34 ALPHA-1: 0.18 ALPHA-2: 0 .73 BETA: 0.65 GAMMA: .070 IGg: 893 IGA: 51 IgM 132 Please help me read this. They tell me that I do not have Celiac,but I am sick all the time. My stomach bloats out like I am 6 months pregnant and I feel sick 75% of the time I eat. Also, I am lactose intolerant! Please help!!
  3. Thanks for taking the time to write back! I have been on everyone of my friends and families bathroom floors. It is nice to find others that understand. At this point I don't even tell anyone when I am sick because it is more often than not. Do you have a certain probiotic you recommend? Is digestive enzymes a pill as well?
  4. My New Year's resolution is to figure this out. I am sick of being sick.... I am 26 years old and sick of feeling like this. Every night of this holiday break I have gone to bed sick. My stomach looked so bloated you would have sworn that I was 6 months pregnant. The only thing that makes me feel better is to lay on my hands and knees with my rear in the air. I then feel like the gas actually moves. I have had trouble with constipation my whole life. I am lactose intolerant and avoid all dairy. I find myself on a regular day not really eating. I think it is because I never feel well after. I went to the GI doctor and he told me I had IBS. He didn't even look at my food journal or anything. I begged him to run a celiac panel and it came back saying that I have abnormal levels of IGA and IGG protein. They never told me what that ment or took it any further. After having my son, they said that they found something in my blood and were going to run some tests. Again, they never contacted me or told me what it was. I will stop eating Gluten if that is what it is. I just want to know. Maybe it is something that I need to be aware of for my son as well. It is hard at family events to eat anything. I just want an answer. A couple of other things that might have relevance from what I have read: I have always had very heavy periods. I have had food poisoning many times I just had a baby and seemed pretty good eating different things during that time. I get sick drinking any type of beer and used to have alcohol effect me right away Many members of my family have gone through early menopause (like starting in their early 30's including my mom) Constipation has also been a family issue along with depression In high school I had chronic sinus infections along with mono I am taking a pro-biotic and I feel like it has made things a little better. *I am considering just going to the Mayo clinic and finally figuring this out. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
