  1. It has been about two weeks since I've posted on here. I finally got around to getting my blood work. I'll post all my numbers from the tests I had done. Total iron saturation: 94 MCG/DL Unsaturated iron binding capacity: 267 MCG/DL Total iron binding capacity: 361 MCG/DL % saturation: 26 Transferrin: 293 MG/DL Tissue transglutaminase AB, IGA: 1 U/mL Gliadin (deamidated) AD (IGA): 4 U Immunoglobin A: 436 MG/DL Ferritin: 54.4 ng/mL Lipase: 19 U/L That is all the information I was sent. If anything looks odd, I would appreciate any help! Thank you, Scott
  2. I had a blood panel to test for celiac as my gastro doctor initially thought that it was celiac. He said that all my numbers indicate that I am healthy.
  3. After I posted last night I was thinking that I should have said that maybe I dont have Celiac but a gluten intolerance. I was listening to the "gluten-free Diet" by Elizabeth Hasselbeck at work and it got me back in the rythem of researching my symptoms. Maybe I need to get the gene testing done for the HLA DQ2/8?
  4. Hello everybody! First off, I've been reading on this site quite a bit and decided to join, so this is my first post. Thanks in advance for any help. Here's how it goes.... I'm a 23 year old male. I had migraines (1-2/month) in high school but always linked them to lack of sleep as I played sports year round. In college I started getting awful "hangovers".... a few drinks would lead to being stuck in bed and vomiting until 8 pm the next day. I had blood work done and it came back negative for celiac. After graduating college I've stopped drinking because I hated wasting my weekends feeling miserable. Within the past several months I have started getting those "hangovers" while being completely sober. (Stomach pains, migraines and nausea) I have met with several doctors and this is what I've had done: Bloodwork Endoscopy (negative for celiac, duodenal hernia, ulcer in small intestine) so I'm on Dexilant now. Ultrasound (nothing came back on that) HIDA gallbladder scan (my ejection fraction was 76%) Here are some symptoms: Fatigue Stomach pain Heartburn/indigestion Dehydration Geographic tongue (dentist said it was nothing to worry about but i know my body is trying to tell me something) Keratosis pilaris My mother had rheumatoid arthritis before passing from ovarian cancer 5 years ago. My sister had her gall bladder taken out about 5 years ago and suffers from similar symptoms (no geo tongue or keratosis though) My doctors all seem to think I'm healthy and I have the feeling that I am a hypochondriac. Now that you know all of my symptoms and my background.... any ideas how to go forward with my diagnosis?? My gut feeling is telling me I have celiac but i just cant find medical proof.
