  1. Trust me , I feel alot better than I did 6 months ago..I weighed 20 pounds less than I do now, wanted to sleep all the time, no energy, and red blood cell count was way down, felt like I was freezing all the time..None of those problems now since going gluten free.
  2. Ok, thanks for the advice..another question, if I avoid gluten but every now and then have an orange (one of the foods I showed an allergic reaction to) will that cause the same problems as gluten ? or is that something entirely different and won't cause any serious medical problems the same way gluten would? Thanks
  3. Ok it was just confusing when I showed no reaction to wheat..also should I get the blood test to confirm??
  4. Hello, I will try to be as brief as possible and please excuse me if I go on for to long. I am confused about my diagnosis. For approximately a year now I have had a bloated feeling and a discomfort under my lower right rib cage and it sometimes radiates to my lower right back, no real pain but a constant discomfort. In January I had a upper gastrointestinal endoscopy including the esophagus and stomach and also had a colonoscopy done the same day. When I recieved my results it said I had mild blunting to the villi and the diagnosis is consistant with Celiac Disease (however said I should seek other testing, I thought the colonoscopy tissue test was the best test to diagnose Celiac Disease, the allergist I went to today begs to differ), the doctor that performed the test told me to avoid wheat...Ok, so I have avoided wheat for the past 6 months and I still get the same symptoms. I have never had any stomach pain even when I ate pizza or had a beer but have always had the bloating and mild pain under the rib cage. So today I go see an allergist and he performs a food skin test (many, many small needles in the back area). When he read me the test results he tells me the scale is from 0 to 4 , with 0 being no allergic reaction and 4 being extremely allergic. The result for wheat was 0 so this is where I am confused ?? I had several that were a 2 one of them was Soy and a couple 4's with one of them being orange's. I drink orange juice at least 3 times a week and I am sure I eat food containing Soy..The results for dairy and eggs was also zero and I have read that most Celiacs suffer a dairy allergy also. So he tells me that I need to have a blood test done for Celiac Disease, so I will get that done next week.. So my question is can I still have Celiac Disease and not be allergic to Wheat?? This doesn't make since to me?? He is thinking that because I drink orange juice all the time and eat Soy that this may have caused the symptoms of Celiac Disease..Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!!!
