  1. Malabsorption and weight gain do not go hand in hand too well. Before being diagnosed I ate like a pig (to make up probably, like you said) and still I was losing weight. So what you're able to eat five chocolate bars after a solid piece of pizza in one sitting, when none of it gets properly absorbed...
  2. I'm pretty sure Epicurus had celiac disease, although it might have as well been some other gastrointestinal chronic illness. He and his contemporaries mention it a lot. Hence his philosophy. I've also heard some scientists suspect Blaise Pascal to have had celiac, as he had quite typical symptoms...
  3. Doesn't look like coeliac disease to me much - at least from those findings. Or could suggest early stage of the disease. There's a chance your doc will not give a diagnosis based on them. IgA is often below normal rather than above in celiac disease patients. But what's more important is that you...
  4. Those fasciculations are killing me, good to know I'm not alone! I get them every night, but they get me during the day as well occasionally. Do you still have them, or did they disappear after going gluten free? I'm asking because I've been on a diet for 8 months now, and despite having...
  5. You really shouldn't speak of something you've clearly got no idea about. Acid and shrooms are not hard drugs! In fact, according to World Health Organization shrooms are the safest drug on the planet - which is pretty far from being a "hard drugs". Just stay safe, test what you buy, find a...
  6. Yep, I've just come back from GI doc, and it's celiac. Tested for RF which came positive, so I'm seeing a rheumie tomorrow. Anyway, I've officially joined gluten free club
  7. Thank you. I'll do some extra tests to rule out any other possible disorders, and start a diet. I'll check back in when biopsy results come and I consult them with a doc (don't have too much trust to scrubs though anymore).
  8. No, he didn't, and he told me that after, so I couldn't do anything about it. It wasn't the same guy who had ordered endoscopy unfortunately. But there's no way I'm doing it again! So what do You suggest? Start a gluten-free diet and test for antibodies in 3 months? Because I get conflicting...
  9. Hey all! After dealing with GI problems for years, 4 months ago I decided to finally start doing something about it and find a cause. My TTG IGA came back positive (90 with <20 meaning positive), but EMA IGA and IGG negative, which has left me with solid dose of uncertainty. Genetic test...
