  1. I was having lots of stomach problems when I ate. Drs. kept thinking IBS, heart burn, etc. I got blood work for Celiac = negative. So I tried Enterolabs and I have a gluten and caesin sensitivity. My level was only 30 which I think is pretty low, but I believe it! If I even let a piece of gluten pass my lips my stomach is killing me!!! So it's true. I wonder since the level is so low that maybe that's why it doesn't show up on blood tests?!!? Who knows. I would try the diet. I feel sooooooo much better on it. It is such a relief to be able to eat and not worry if you are going to be doubled over in pain afterwards. It is such a great feeling. It's a lot of work and I am still trying to get adjusted but I would give it a shot and see if it helps! Good Luck!
  2. Is there anyone on here from Eastern Massachusetts that recommends a good doctor to see about my symptoms and possible gluten sensitivity/intolerance and/or celiac?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Britt
  3. Thanks for the info. about Enterlob. I think I might look into it more and see what results I can get from them. Thanks again! Britt
  4. Thanks for the info. I am thinking of starting the gluten free diet as of January 1st. Start the new year off fresh. I'll see if I will go for more testing, if I do I will definately switch doctors to one that will listen to me. I see a lot of people talking about Enterolabs. What is that?? Do they do testing for celiac and gluten sensitivity? Would that be a good idea to get tested through them? Where are they located? Britt
  5. I am new to this message board, so hope I am doing this right. I am not sure if I have celiac or not. I had blood drawn and my IgG was a little higher than the range (mine was 21, the normal range was 0-19 units), so it wasn't that much higher. My IgA was 6 (normal range 0-19 unites) and my tissue transglutaminase was 12 (normal range 0-19 units). So I was told I do not have celiac. I did not pursure the biopsy route, the way the doctor was talking I kind of felt like he wouldn't bother with the biopsy because he was so adament my stomach pain was irritable bowel syndrome not celiac. I continue to have symptoms-abdominal pain, constipation, nausea. I was also told a while ago when I have blood drawn before this that I was slightly anemic. I have gone through other tests to see if this stomach pain was something else-cat scans, ultrasounds, food allergy testing. Everything has come back fine. However, I think I am going to try the gluten free diet to see if it will help with the way I feel. I continously feel lousy, exhausted, etc. I don't know if I should pursue any more testing or just try the gluten free diet to see what happens?? Any thoughts? thanks!
