  1. Thank you so much for your response Awol! It is so helpful to hear others' experiences. I am of a like-mind and call what you refer to as "white noise" as "variables" in my journey to healing . I've been trying to eliminate them and not introduce any more so that I can pin this thing down! Hoping...
  2. Thanks! Since going gluten free in January I began suffering from hives as well. I had it checked out at the allergist pretty much thinks it is idiopathic and most likely autoimmune, so I do understand! Hives are scary, I felt like I was on the verge of anaphylaxis at any minute and couldn't pin...
  3. It was not my GI doctor, but my rheumatologist that offered them once the other autoimmune diseases were ruled out, but my CRP and ESR were high. My Hashimoto's is under control at the moment, but over the last year I have been struggling with that quite a bit. Regardless, I'm inflamed whether it...
  4. Hi All - Did anyone do a course of steroids to bring down inflammation shortly after diagnosis to bring down inflammation? Also - did anyone have inflammation markers followed after diagnosis; if so how long did it take for them to come down to normal range (with or without steroids)? Thanks...
  5. Hi Amanda, I was actually just diagnosed last week and am like you and had very few GI symptoms (until I cut the gluten out, now I have a ton of GI issues when I get glutened). I too had tons of joint pain and neuropathy symptoms. I didn't start my gluten free diet until I got my endoscopy results...
  6. Interesting. Yes, my blood test was "weak positive" for celiac. I would love to not have yet another restriction on my diet!
  7. Hi All, Newly diagnosed yesterday. I was not surprised, as I was pretty sure I had celiac, but of course it doesn't end there. My biopsy report says "Findings are compatible with a malabsorption pattern of injury to include celiac sprue among other entities such as protein hypersensitivity, malnutrition...
  8. Thanks for your reply - it is very helpful. I have Hashimoto's, and a strong family history of autoimmune disease, so it will come as no surprise to me if I end up developing another autoimmune condition. In fact, the past year I have been extremely inflamed and suspect another condition has come...
  9. Hello All, first time poster here. I have been going through the process of getting tested, and get my biopsy results from the Doctor on Monday (I called - but they wouldn't give them to me over the phone 🤔). This whole time I've been really curious about one of my blood test results, because fr...
