  1. I was so sure I had celiac. But my endoscopy and biopsies came back negative. I've been eating gluten free for close to a month now and haven't had any issues - except for the two times I cheated. Ugh I am so frustrated! My dr wants me to keep eating gluten free for a month before he does any other tests. What else could it be? IBS?
  2. I don't see anything about total iga. It looks like everything is in the normal range except anion gap? I am just really surprised because going off gluten made my symptoms better (after the blood test)
  3. Interpretive results: <7= negative 7.0-10.0 = equivocal >10.0=positive
  4. Tissue Transglu, IGA 0.3 Tissue Transglu, IgG <0.6 Gldn Ab, IgA 0.6 Gldn Ab, IgG 0.5
  5. I'm not sure about the blood test results. My regular dr office you have to go back for results - wont do over phone - and I wasn't that concerned with them because of how many false negatives there are.
  6. I have had GI issues for about 15 years now. For a long time I would think it was a certain food(s) then cut it out of my diet. For example, ranch dressing on salad, Alfredo sauce on pasta, dips when I was eating chips or crackers. The weird thing is that after I had both of my children, my symptoms went away for about 2 years or so. I got to a point where I wasn't eating anything except bread products but was still getting sick and couldn't figure out why. I finally sucked it up and went to my regular dr who said based on my symptoms (basically just D not a ton of stomach pain or other issues) that it was IBS. Then she asked me if I had noticed any foods lately that we're bothering me. Once I said that I knew bagels gave me an issues. Once I said that she said that it could be celiac and sent me to have an endoscopy done. While waiting to visit the GI dr and then for the endoscopy I tried going off gluten for a few days before reading that I shouldn't do that until I was diagnosed. So I went back to it but only a little bit every day. A couple days ago I had a lot of gluten and man did I pay for it within a few hrs. I had my endoscopy today and have to wait for the biopsy results. But I thought they could tell from looking that it was celiac? What do you guts think? Does this sound like celiac or IBS?
