An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
Umm Spicely is one of the few I trust, and they tested negative after some asshat came here claiming gluten on them last time. I wasted my money and time Nima Testing my spicely organic spices. I use them as a gluten free chef, and baker.
I also have UC and I can tell you, anything but the smallest amounts of garlic, onions, or hot peppers will set off my UC. It HATES garlic and onions and I have to use them just slightly, spicy peppers it is picky some days it is alright with paprika in small amounts same with ancho, and tiny pinches of Cayenne other days even cumin might make it angery. It is a really picky disease, and you sort of have to stick to easy herbs on bad days for seasoning to appease the colon gods. PS Marshmallow Root, Aloe Vera inner filet juice, and Slippery Elm can be great so soothing the beast.
I am doing the family turkey this year with poultry seasoning, and butter flavored coconut oil, avoiding garlic, only using a 1/4 sweet onion and a celery butt on the inside, and for flavor injecting it with liquid smoke and putting bacon over it. My keto dressing this year with my UC also has the onion omitted, just using poultry herbs and a bit of celery sauteed and pulsed ina food processor.
I had to remove grains from my diet completely, fruits, sugars, carbs all caused my UC to flare up so they all had to go. I changed to a ketogenic diet.
I agree with the advice given. You could also ask for the rest of the celiac panel since you were barely positive on the DGP IGG. This will help determine if the slight positive was a fluke. Make sure that you have been eating gluten for at least 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood test. If you had been gluten free, the tests would not be accurate (invalid). All celiac disease testing requires you to be on a full gluten diet.
I personally tested positive on only the DGP IgA, but my result was not borderline like yours.
I am sorry that your result is not clear. ☹️
We never eat at LAX. We do bring our own food or purchase gluten-free snacks while traveling through various airports. Often you can find fresh fruit options. If going international, do not rely on any airline to remember to load a gluten-free meal. You may end up starving!
Your celiac test results are normal. But four weeks may not be enough time for your body to develop antibodies specific to a gluten exposure. Celiac centers recommend 8 to 12 weeks for blood tests and only 2 to 4 for an endoscopy to obtain intestinal biopsies.
Since you already have one AI issue, maybe you can go directly to an endoscopy. This is something you need to discuss with your doctor as insurance has a say....ugh!
Even if negative for celiac disease, I would look to an autoimmune diet that may help relieve your AI flares. I would encourage you to really rule out celiac disease first, if possible.
