I'm hoping some of you can help me learn a little more about gluten, celiac, and related issues.
I have symptoms that could be celiac, though they could be caused by other things. My doctor is not a great listener or a great communicator, so I've been trying to read and learn online. Until I asked for a copy of my test results last week, I didn't know what my doctor had been testing for or why. She told me my tests were all normal and I was fine. I know from how I feel that I am not fine. I asked her to test for celiac. She was resistant, but finally agreed. So, I have a few questions.
First, some of you with thyroid issues may be able to tell me, is a TSH of 3.9 fine?
Second, I've read about the celiac panel, but I'm not sure that's what my doctor ordered. She didn't have time to talk to me about the results, but the receptionist read them to me. These are what I got:
1. anti-gliadin, ABS, IgA: 1 (range of 0-4).
2. anti-gliadin ABS, IgG: 1 (range of 0-9)
3. endomysial antibody IgA: negative
