  1. Thank you everyone! I got my blood work results back today. Now way back in 2009 I was tested in diff country while taveling and my ttg was 297and I have been on full gluten diet until last year november Here in canada I they never give a number. It just said > 200. But happy to say its 160 Yay!! It might not be as low as others might have seen but I am happy for this progress. My other antibody is now NORMAL. My hemoglobin had jumped from the 70s to 127. My ferritin has gone up to 73! Just thought I should share the numbers. I am off to celebrate with some glutenfree honey and peanut butter sandwiches
  2. Thank you everyone! I am really optimistic about this positive (and at times hard) lifestyle change. I guess its all worth it in the end. I am just hoping to see some validation in the results for the blood work. I will share how it went.
  3. Hi Everyone, I am new but new on the forum. I have been reading the forum for about 5 months now and have found tons of helpful information here. I have seen this forum members provide lots of support to others. I have found the stories and the information shared here very informative and very encouraging. Cheers to all of you for such good work Little about me: I was diagnosed with celiac late 2013. I had suspected I might have it after my mom was diagnosed with Celiac in 2009 but I guess I was in denial and in university so I decided to push my diagnosis back for a while. My symptoms for Celiac were constipation, fatigue and anemia . Not having severe symptoms also contributed to not take the Celiac seriously but I guess I should count my blessings and be thankful that the symptoms are not severe. My mood started getting worse (very angry and irritable) last year and I guess so did the damage to my gut. Endoscopy showed grade 3 out of 4 damage (it sound bad given that my GI looked concerned ). I guess I can't cry about it now given this is a consequence of my own choice . I have been gluten free for about 3 months (well 4 months of I count the big blunders I made in the first month of the diet) and hoping that my health will go no where but up . I just completed the follow up blood work yesterday and am hoping that it shows some good results of my hard work for the last 3 month. I need some positive vibes from you guys!!! Thank you!
