felsar posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseHi everyone, July last year I had glandular fever and one of the symptoms I had was diarrhea. All other symptoms went away except for the diarrhea which I have had for nearly 8 months now. The doctor performed a celiac panel in which everything was normal except for a positive ttg. I had an endoscopy last week and my results were normal but I have Helicobacter Pylori. I'm relieved to have an answer to my ongoing diarrhea/abdominal issues but doctor and gastro both say the ttg was a false positive and dont need to retest. Just wondering if H. Pylori be cause of a positive ttg or should I have ttg retested. I just want to know why it would have been positive. Any suggestions?? Thanks
Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone can please tell me if I need to be worried about these blood test results. Last week I went to the doctor because I was feeling extremely tired and run down. After running some blood tests it turned out I had caught glandular fever in the last 1 to 3 months. He also threw in a celiac test and said I had a weak positive and that it was really nothing to worry about. Now I cant stop thinking about it because celiac has never crossed my mind before. It would explain why I have had diarrhea for the last few months (I thought maybe this was just part of glandular fever). These are my blood test results: Anti Gliadin IgA <5 U/ml (0-19) Anti Gliadin IgG <5 U/ml (0-19) Anti Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 34 Um/L (0-11) Do I need to do any more tests/diet changes with these results or do I just leave it. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for listening.
