fannyarbuckle replied to erikamarie87's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsI have a question about testing. 2 years ago I tested positve, according to my doctor, with a gluten intolerance. This week i went in with an order to have a celiac panel. Today the dr. said that the results were negetive but he wants me on allergy serum because I tested positive to skin test to garlic and apricot. The test results from what I can read- I asked for a copy- Shows only the IG antibody, IgA 3.26 and then again -IgA 186. I have a sister who was diagnosed by biopsy 20 years ago and another sister diagnosed by blood and biopsy 2 weeks ago. I definitely feel better on a gluten free diet. I have IBS (diarrhea and constipation, cramping, nausea, fatigue and headaches and had gallbladder removed due to a stone). I am hypothyroid and have tested positive for arthritis. I have not been to a gasto or an enterologist, but have appointments at the end of the month. Should I bother? There is a family history of thyroid, psoriasis, celiac, colon cancer, diverticulits, diverticulosis, stomach ulcers and gallbladder disease. I ate gluten for about 5 days before the last blood test and just a little off and on for the months prior. Not everyday but a little on the weekends. Did that skew the test? The test I took 2 years ago also was done right after I had been avoiding gluten for awhile. I am so confused. Someone even said it was in my head!
