  1. I have done the genetic test and I have the HLA-DQ8 gene. Anytime I get glutened, I get seriously depressed. I even ended up crying at the dr's office a few days ago! It also turned out I've got underactive thyroid so obviously there's a possibility of hashimoto disease. I think it's clear I'm celiac. I started a strict gluten-free diet after getting the dna result but will still look into seeing a specialist soon.
  2. Thanks guys! I really appreciate your help. I am gluten-free at the moment and feel better every day. I plan to do the DNA test to check if I have the gene and maybe see a good specialist after that
  3. Hi all, I'm new here and would appreciate help with interpreting my blood test results. TgA IgG - 0.160 (<1.000 negative) TgA IgA - 2.69 (<20.00 negative) AGA IgA - 17.12 (<25.00 negative) AGA IgG - 39.50 (>25.00 positive) I have many symptoms and they're actually getting worse with time. I did the tests 10 months ago on my own and my GP completely ignored it. I've been worse and worse and only recently decided to go completely gluten free as I can't cope with it anymore. I had limited gluten consumption a few months before testing but was still having some every or almost every day. Unfortunately I wasn't tested for total IgA. Thanks for any comments!
