  1. There seem to be so many different stories when it come to celiac and/or intolerance. Many give up gluten in the hope of improving health and then find out it was a big culprit... which is great, but then it's hard to get a diagnosis because it's then no good option to make yourself so sick. I...
  2. This is the only test I've had. My doctor suspected gluten intolerance/celiac (due to my numerous symptoms) and since he's a functional medicine practitioner, this is what he ordered. I don't know how well any further testing would work, since I'm gluten free (even though might be still exposed...
  3. Thank you for the links. 👌 Yes, why isn't it enough? I guess I'm one of the persons that prefers a 'scientifically validated' diagnosis, approved of by the medical community. Then again that's not an option at this point anyway since I get so violently ill, a gluten challenge would be...
  4. Thank you for the link, I'll check it out! 😍 I still don't get why someone can have such high levels of an antibody against gluten without the body being intolerant to it. There must be a reason the body produces it. The very high anti-gliadin + symptoms + symptom improvement (anaemia for ex...
  5. Yes, that's true. I got much better in many ways... to be fully healed I need to be more strict... I'll try the Fasano diet and not eating out for quite some time. Hopefully it'll help. Thank you for your advice!

So I'm wondering then what could cause such high numbers of the antibody if I don't have celiac... it's confusing. 😕 It must mean that my body is reacting badly to gluten, anyway... I mean obviously it does since I get so unwell from it. It would be nice to have some sort of...
  7. If it's not found in people that are not celiac, then if you have high levels of it... then you are? I'm sorry if I sound confused. :) Thank you for your reply! On a side note; amazing how you could recover from all those symptoms, I'm hoping to heal the same way also.
  8. Thank you so much for your reply! It means a lot to me that you took the time to write to me. No other tests has been done and since I get so sick from ingesting gluten it's hard for me to do more testing. I guess since I got better (deficiencies as well) it points to something. But there...
  9. Hello, I need some advice. I have been gluten-free for about 5 years, following a primal type diet. I started the diet due to several health problems; joint pain, dizziness, migraines, fatigue and so on. I also had a history of severe anaemia and had other mineral/vitamin deficiencies as well...
