  1. Thanks to all for your invaluable and supportive replies! I have been eating gluten-free per doctor's order since July, when I started this thread with the results of my Celiac panel. I haven't noticed much of a difference in my overall health, much to my disappointment; and, when I do slip and eat gluten, I don't report any adverse reactions besides maybe some fatigue. I received my follow-up Celiac panel lab results today, which show similar readings to the ones from May: Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Antibody, IgA: 35.0 (Reference Range: < 6.1) Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Antibody, IgG: 0.6 (< 4.9) Anti-human Tissue Transglutaminase IgA: 0.3 (< 10.3) Anti-Endomysial IgA IFA: Negative Total Serum IgA: 208 mg/dL (Range: 44-441) I'm still curious to know what all this means, and how to proceed. The doctor who performed this follow-up Celiac panel is not the same one who performed the initial one back in May. And, whereas my first doctor (in May) did not diagnose Celiac Disease following my results, my new doctor who performed and interpreted these new results immediately diagnosed me with Celiac Disease. Who to believe? Thank you!
  2. Does anyone have any advice on these results and/or how to proceed? I'm finding limited info online and going slightly crazy as a result. Thanks!
  3. Hello! My apologies in advance if I am posting this under the wrong category... I just joined this message board today after receiving some concerning lab results from my doctor's office regarding my self-requested Celiac panel. (Sadly, I received these lab results without an appointment with my doctor to discuss them.) I am seeking some insight and feedback on the results, as I am currently in a panic state thinking the worst possible outcome until I can discuss it with my doctor during my follow-up appointment next week. A brief background: I am 30 y/o and have been treated for Hashimoto's hypothyroidism since my early 20's. Just a few weeks ago, after years of never feeling quite "optimized" with my thyroid, I decided to investigate beyond thyroid dysfunction for the source of some longstanding ailments
