Old as the hills and twice as dusty.

You can be in the old enough to know better group with me! Haha although....when I turned 30 a few months ago my friends coined it the "Dirty Thirty"...hehe so maybe it should be old enough to know better but has no regard for the rules?? 😝

My cat isn't celiac, but just in case you were wondering, she will be 13 next month - she was born on my birthday! And even though SHE is old enough to know better, she doesn't.

    • I just got a call from the Kaiser GI department. The doctor who performed the endoscopy was supposed to call me with the results and instead the receptionist did. She said "Dr. X says your biopsy was normal and you do not have celiac disease." Word for word, that's it! So not only did I not get to talk to her the day of my procedure, but not at all! They are printing copy of the biopsy pathology report for me and I'll get it tomorrow. I want to see if it says how many samples they took. At this point, I still feel like crap, still have symptoms and I'm going to try a gluten-free diet to see how I improve, get blood tests again eventually. I'm moving out of state in the summer and hopefully will find better doctors.          
    • I am curious which gene you have?  DQ6?
    • Tapioca is also a common source for "modified food starch."
    • Thanks for all your help. I got my new test results in. I'm surprised by how fast they came back. It is a different lab (different insurance) and fortunately, it is easier to read, but unfortunately, the results still seem a bit off from a clear cut answer.  Gliadin DP Igg was elevated,  along with my EMA.  The tTG IgA was not elevated on this test, although it was equivocal last time but on a completely different scale since it was from a different lab.     It seems odd that the tTG IgA is lower. Does anyone know anything about that?  At the same time, EMA and Gliadin DP IgG are higher.   I appreciate everyone's input. Until now, I have only been seeing an endocrinologist and my primary care.  They both seem to be aware of celiac but not incredibly confident in navigating the diagnosis.  My endo shrugged off the first test results as not that high.  Obviously, I don't want to have celiac, but I wanted a second opinion.  I was glad that my primary care wanted to at least look at tests again. I'm not sure yet what the next steps will be.   Celiac Serology Profile with Reflex to Endomysial Antibody (EMA), IgA Titer by IFA   NAME VALUE REFERENCE RANGE F Endomys. IgA Screen Positive  A Neg. at 1:5 ("") F Endomys.

    • In the rare instance that "modified food starch" is made from wheat, it will say so in the ingredients or Contains statement.  If you wonder what it is made from, email or call and ask.  I think its usually corn or potato Progresso is part of a large company.  they would not label something gluten-free unless they know it is.  Its a law in the US and Canada.
