  1. He told me that they were fine and that I didn't have celiac, because I wasn't anemic and didn't have diarrhea. He was a nice guy but definitely an old school doctor. But I was having an endoscopy done anyways so he did a biopsy for me which I thought was nice. I just hope the insurance covers it. He said it would but who knows.
  2. Thanks everyone, I am going to the GI today and I will bring my results and ask him about that. Thanks Pauliina for giving me the heads up on that, I appreciate it.
  3. Hey Chrissy, thanks alot, I appreciate it.
  4. Hi, I had a celiac panel done and was told it was negative. My results were as follows: Immunoglubulin A, serum: IGA 71 (68-378) Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA TTG IGA 0.2 (<7.0) If anyone can let me know I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much.
  5. No she hasn't ever been tested, or tried the diet. I don't think she ever would. Yeah I figured there has to be some connection to gluten and sleeping, because I saw the whole section on sleeping here. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced these symptoms, or could give me some input as to whether you think they could be due to a gluten intolerance. Okay, here goes. My mom has not been able to sleep through the night since she was a baby. I remember my grandma telling me stories of her never sleeping. She was also an irritable baby. She has a terrible time with allergies, she's always clearing her throat hacking up mucus, sorry. She can't drink certain beers because they stuff her nose up so bad, and I remember she once ate a loaf of rye bread and couldn't breathe for 2 days because her nose was so stuffed up. She does have occasional diarrhea, and like I said earlier she can't sleep through the night. She will usally fall asleep fine, but is up in a few hours and has a very hard time returning to sleep. She does have heartburn occasionally also. So could anyone give me some input, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
  7. Yeah, I am almost one hundred percent sure that I am totally gluten-free. I have heard about the dairy thing though. Actually when I went to my doctor with stomach complaints, the first thing she said was to try and cut out dairy, which I never did. So maybe I will try that and see. Thanks
  8. I've been gluten-free for 7 days now. For the last 3 I have noticed that my reflux is worse and I seem to be burping more. I also have a gnawing ache in my stomach like hunger pains even right after I eat. I don't have an ulcer, at least not to my knowledge, I just had an upper GI this summer and all it showed was reflux. My theory is that maybe my stomach is used to producing so much acid to break down all the gluten and stuff, and now that it is not there I have even more excess. I don't know. So if someone could let me know what they think, or if someone has ever had this happen could let me know I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
  9. Thanks Nikki, for the reply, it eased my mind.
  10. Hi, I had an annual appointment today with my nurse practitioner. While I was there I brought up the possibility of having celiac, and asked her if I could get the test done. I told her my symptoms and she agreed. Well I was having blood drawn anyways so she said we would do the Celiac panel today also. I had told her that I had been on a gluten-free diet for 4 days now, to test it myself. I asked her if this would hurt the results and she said no she didn't think so. Does anyone know if this would affect the results. If you could tell me what you think I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
