  1. I'm new here, but have been in the shadows reading posts for quite some time. In April I had a borderline Iga (high, but not high enough for celiac), but other celiac blood work was normal. While waiting for the endoscope, I spent a couple of fabulous weeks gluten free. Then had a gluten fest 2 weeks prior to the endo. The results came back negative; no damage to the villi. I'm so confused! Don't think my bloodwork was accurate because I was gluten free for a couple of days before it was done. When I'm gluten free, I feel better, the bloating, burping, and constipation go away, but the doc wants to put me through some more tests. Now with hypothyroidism, I'm also looking at diabetes. I feel like a poser to say I'm celiac, but it all seems to point that way (at least in my twisted sense of reality). any advice?
