Screwy Test Results

Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me. One year ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have been gluten free since then (about a year). I also have other food allergies: wheat, soy, dairy, yeast. I've been very sick again recently and they repeated my test results.

Here they are:

Reticulin IGA negative

Reticulin IGA T Does Not Register

Gliadin AB IgG 101 (it's suppose to be below 20)

Gliadin AB IgA 9 (it's supposed to be less than 20)

I'm sure that I haven't been eating any gluten. I'm very careful about labels. I even check, soap, shampoo, etc. My doctor says I have to be getting gluten from somewhere. When I was originally diagnosed, the test results were pretty much the same, except my IgG was 65, not 101. What is going on? Any words of wisdom?

Hi,

Are you sure that you haven't gotten a hold of gluten from something? I know that sounds silly but even certain sodas contain gluten. What about your medications or vitamins? I got sick about a month ago and was so upset because I had done everything to remain gluten-free. Turns out that I was taking a vitamin supplement and when I called the company to see if it contained gluten, they never gave me a straight answer and then never returned my call. I stopped taking the calcium plus D and within a week my stomach calmed down. I now take a different brand. Take a look in your medicine cabinet. There can be some real culprits in there. I know about the other food allergies too as most of the things you listed make me sick as well, especially one you didn't list, corn, (corn syrup, etc). They say that celiacs can really get sick from high fructose corn syrup, so I stay away from it. First off, take a look at any meds you are taking. I hope this helps and I want you to hang in there. It can get discouraging because you feel like you are working so hard to avoid what makes you sick and then you get results like that. You will find out what it is. Also, stay away from corn syrup, it can be bad news for people like us. Take care.

kaz75,

I agree with your doctor and Natalie; it really looks like you're getting gluten from somewhere. You say that you got sick again recently, and I am assuming that you had been doing fairly well before then. So, what happened in your life right before you got sick? Did something change in your diet/medications/hygiene routine? If so, there's your prime suspect! I hope you succeed in tracking down the culprit soon, so you can return to healing your body! Good luck!

    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge.

    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
