  1. I've just recently been diagnosed with celiac (about 5 days ago) and have been eating gluten-free (except for accidental ingestion as we try to figure out how to do this with our family). My stomach is really hurting! Is this normal in the beginning? I know that everyone probably has different reactions, but was wondering if this is normal? It's kind of like my stomach area is very sore, but it just feels off. This symptom started after about 24 hours on a gluten-free diet. Thanks Anne
  2. Thank you very much. I really appreciate your time writing back to me. I am not in a position to do the biopsy, nor did my doctor recommend it. My iron levels are actually on the high side - I had an iron infusion about 18 months ago during pregnancy because of anemia. At this point we are trying to eliminate all the gluten in our house. My parents are less than supportive - my father brought cinnamon rolls and danishes back from the grocery store today and I about cried...
  3. Hi there, I have just received copies back from the panels my immunologist ordered a few weeks ago. Most of it was normal, but there are a few things I'd like help deciphering. Gliadin IgG/IgA Ab Prof, EIA Deamidated Gliadin, abs, IgA 4 units negative 0-19 Deaminated Gliadin abs, IgG, 26 high negative 0-19 weak positive 20-30 moderate to strong positive >30 Other immune panels: IFE and PE, serum Immunoglobulin G, Qn, serum 1122 mg/dL (700-1600) Immunoglobulin A, Qn, serum 137 mg/dL (91-414) Immunoglobulin M, Qn, serum 160 mg/dL 40-230 There was a bunch of other stuff he ran, but it was all in normal ranges. My vitamin D, 25-hydroxy was 57.1 (30-100) My calcitriol (1,25 di-OH Vit D) was 99.7 high (10-75). He said this means my body is craving calcium. I'm 34, mom to 3, currently breastfeeding. I've had a lifetime of IBS issues, but recently culminated in a shingles outbreak which led me to see this doctor. All he told me was to avoid all gluten - but I'm confused - do the results mean I have celiac or just a sensitivity? Thanks so much for your help.
