  1. Hey guys! Been on this Celiac journey for close to 8 months now. Been gluten free all except a bad poisoning two months ago by accident, when I mistook packaging to be gluten free. I have talked before about terrible indigestion, and bowel looseness. This eventually led to terrible fatigue...
  2. Hey everyone. I have been gluten free now a little over six months. I was in complete misery when I got diagnosed celiac. TTG-IGA high, but not overly, but near total villous atrophy, and all the other relevant markers in place...mom also has Celiac disease. I am 34, it started after a bad flu...
  3. So big, big stuff... Started injecting B12. The effects were almost immediate. Went from functioning at about 40 percent to about 80. Been four days now, feel much MUCH better. I still have the odd little neurological "tick", it's not "perfect", but I was the walking dead for the past three...
  4. Update to this: my doctor pointed out low B12 levels from a test done sometime last year. 189, no idea what that number entails. So he recommended injecting B12. I had my blood tested again for it yesterday as well. He also referred me to a neurologist just to rule out possible tumor etc, as a "just...
  5. So I finally saw my GI, and she told me everything I needed to hear: "You definitely have celiac disease." "But what if-" "No. It's definitely celiac." And fair enough. After two and a half months of being gluten free, my bowels have finally reached a pretty normal state. I can load...
  6. Okay so I just want to kind of go over this one more time... Ill keep it short as I have spoken here before...digestive issues for a couple of years. TTG-IGA and EMA test early on in that process. TGA-IGA was a positive (not extraordinarily high) EMA was negative. Did an endoscopy two months...
  7. I just want to chime in. I have not been "officially" diagnosed, as I don't actually see my GI doctor til february to discuss my results. But I had a positive TTG-IGA (negative for any other blood test), near total villous atrophy, elevated IEL, and was also diagnosed with chronic gastritis (no H...
  8. Thanks NNowak. It was the recommendation of my doc to take the Pentaloc for a few weeks, and the reason is to heal my gastritis. I am definitely noticing big improvements. I had some fatty food last night which caused me some issues but the rest of me week has been fantastic. I will have to wait...
  9. I had an apppointment with my non GI family doctor to get her up to speed with all this. Despite "near total villous atrophy" and my GI doctor thinking I have celiac, she said "I think it's just your anxiety." and was really dismissive about the whole thing. Time for a new family doctor...
  10. It was found in biopsy. But they did not identify it as autoimmune gastritis. So hopefully not?
  11. Thanks for the replies. Sorry it was a long weekend! Went to emergency for stomach issues, and they figure it was just a stomach bug that happened coincidentally. So hard to tell anymore. Anyways, I am noticing some problems are definitely starting to reduce. I really do need to eat every few...
  12. Hello. I was just diagnosed with Celiac yesterday. Conditions in the title. Currently, I have been prescribed with a PPI. I have not started taking this. Apart from the usual diahrea, and inability to properly digest fat, I have also been diagnosed with chronic gastritis. This seems to be what...
  13. An update: my doctor confirmed celiac. I do not have all the details in front of me but "total vilious atrophy" or something like that. And also chronic gastritis. H pylori biopsy negative. Had extensive bloodwork checking liver pancreas and gallbladder and no issues there or anywhere else. So it...
