Panel came back negative (results below). I guess I am now going to take the gluten out for the truly gold standard. It is amazing how many people without Celiac swear they feel so much better when completely off gluten. This has been quite the roller coaster - thank you so much everyone for your support. I did learn a lot - now if only I could figure out how to bake some really nice gluten-free cakes. 

 

 

Component Results Component Standard Range Your Value Gliadin IgA Ab 0 - 19 units 2 Negative 0 - 19

Weak Positive 20 - 30

Moderate to Strong Positive >30 GLIADIN IGG AB 0 - 19 units 2 Negative 0 - 19

Weak Positive 20 - 30

Moderate to Strong Positive >30 Tissue Transglutminase Ab,IgA 0 - 3 U/mL <2 Negative 0 - 3

Weak Positive 4 - 10

Positive >10

Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified

as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr-

ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99%

specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy. Tissue Transglutaminase Ab,IgG 0 - 5 U/mL <2 Negative 0 - 5

Weak Positive 6 - 9

Positive >9 Endomysial IgA, Ab Negative Negative IgA 91 - 414 mg/dL 194

 

 

The final gold standard test (after antibodies) is to go 100% gluten free and see how it goes.  Keep track of symptoms to describe what happened to a doctor later if needed.  Endoscopy's sometime miss damage.  I also believe checking some nutrient levels could help determine how your digestion is working.  Vitamin B, iron, vitamin D, and magnesium might be low if the villi are damaged or you have celiac.

    • So Dr called. Labs normal. See ya I. 3 years. 
    • I had horrific leg pains when celiac first reared its ugly head in my childhood. My Mom used to try warm compresses but I don''t remember them helping. Don't know if they were from vitamin deficiencies or not but I had them off and on throughout childhood. I would get cramps in adulthood almost anywhere. My back was the worst. The cramping did resolve gluten free. Don't know if that will be the case for your daughter though. One last thought I know many places are having a very warm summer. Dehydration can also cause muscle cramps so if your dealing with a lot of heat make sure she is well hydrated. I hope she is feeling much better soon. Do get a full panel done on yourself and all first degree relatives. Testing is advised even if folks don't seem to have symptoms.
    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
