  1. So I have a question ... If I have a celiac's genetics test done, and it comes back NEGATIVE ... I can rightfully assume I do not have celiacs disease??
  2. Will an allergy test FOR SURE indicate a wheat/gluten allergy? Is there a way that I could still have an allergy to certain foods if the test comes back negative??
  3. Symptoms Unlike All Of Yours

    this is a tough one ... while your keeping your food journal, do you know "exactly" makes you have that kind of reaction (diarrhea). Once you find out I would just stay away from that one thing or things that make you have to use the restroom as fast as you do. I think you need to really pin-point what is making you use the restroom instead of taking Gluten out of your diet. Because Gluten is in so many things and it seems like you really don't have a reaction that many times. I understand what your going through. Any time I eat I must be home by a bathroom. I'm an athlete as well and its frustrating for me to be somewhere and have to use the restroom like that. I'm still very embarrassed. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

  6. Looking For Advice

    Hey All, I need Help!!! I feel like I haven't found a doctor that has really cared about helping me or finding out what is wrong. When I was about 15 I was diagnosed with IBS. I knew there was more to it then that. I've had diarrhea or very loose stool as long as I could remember. One Doctor told me "maybe loose stool and diarrhea is just NORMAL for you" ... Are you kidding me .. Could you even believe a doctor could say that ... I know I couldn't! Now at 24, Had a colonscopy done, had two polyps removed. (Both non-cancerous) no sign of colitis, or diverticulitis. My husband was the one who researched Celiac Disease and explained to the doctor that maybe it was a good idea to check and see if this is something I had. All the symptoms lined up so I was sure we finally got down to the bottom of it. I've been on the gluten free diet for about 3 weeks now and I had a biopsy done of my stomach and beginning of my large intestine. All came back negative for a gluten sensitivity. My stomach pain isn't as bad as it was however I'm still having very loose stool if not diarrhea. NOW, I'm just so confused, upset, and discouraged. I don't know what is wrong and I'm not sure if I should stick to the diet because the test came back negative. Is there a possibility that I still could have Celiac?? Could it be something else? I haven't the slightest idea where to start. My husband and I would like to start a family soon however we both agree that I need to be healthy enough to carry our baby. All I want is to get down to the bottom of this! I need help or any kind of suggestions or advise. Thank you so much!
