  1. Glad it went well! Hope your gluten withdrawals aren't too bad!
  2. Decoding My Serology?

    Worth a shot
  3. Isn't it the worst, knowing that your body doesn't cope, but you kind of have to for accurate results? 5 days until my appointment.
  4. Help, Please

    Go and get bloods done, and go from there. While it might not help everyone, it might just help you Worth a shot to stop feeling this way, yeah? I know for me it is, just waiting on an endoscopy to officially diagnose/confirm, CAN NOT WAIT to start gluten-free!
  5. Decoding My Serology?

    Ooh, I'd love a decoder ring. Costume included??
  6. Really glad I discovered this forum before my appointment next week for my gastroscopy confirmation. Preparing my poor man and family to cop all kinds of lovely from me. Can't wait to get past that stage and be happily gluten-free.
  7. After a few months of nasty gut issues, one episode of bloating to the point where I couldn't move my legs without extreme pain and finally getting sick of it, I had bloods done a couple of weeks ago, which apparently have come back positive. I have a print of them sitting in front of me, an appointment for a gastroscopy next week. Feeling terrible today, and not 100% sure this is going to even make sense. Or if things are different internationally, I'm in Australia. My serology came back with: Deaminated Gliadin IgG (Phadia 250): positive 14.0 h-tTG IgA (Phadia 250): positive 42.0 IgA (Total) (Abbott Architect): 2.69 g/L (0.6o-3.96) [please note new reference ranges] Note underneath says both are indicative of coelic disease. Is there a high rate of these showing up and being incorrect, or indicative of something else? I think at the moment I'm in a state of disbelief that it's something as simple as eradication of something from my diet which could fix how I'm feeling right now.
