  1. I can not answer your question but I know how you feel. My gliadin antibody IgA was high and my endomysical AB (IgA) screen was negative also but my dr said that I do not have celiac. I still think that I may have celiac or atleast have gluten intolrance, because I have many of the symptoms. Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. I hope they find out what is going on with you so you can start to feel better soon.
  2. I really can not answer you question but you are not alone! I have had the blood test and the endoscopy, my blood test came back with only 1 antibody positive and the biopsy came back negative. My dr said the I do not have celiac. But like you I too have many of the symptoms, I think that either I am gluten intolerant or I am just now devloping celiac. I have for many years had trouble with my stomach on and off, I would have a few months when I would have problems then they would go away for a few months. Now it seems that everytime I eat now I get bloated and just feel bad, but that did not start until after I went to the dr to try to find out what was going on with me. So I think that I am just going to start the gluten free diet and see how it goes. I too was hoping that the test would come back positive so atleast then I would know what it was and what to do about it. Sorry I can not answer your question but I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone, and it was good for me to see your post so I now know that I am not alone either! I hope they can find what is wrong with you so you can start feeling better.
  3. I have been tested for Celiac with blood test and endoscopy with biopsy. I have also had a colonoscopy with biospy. I am not sure what the result mean or what to do next can someone help me? My dad has Crohn's and I have had stomach problems for a long time. Some of my symptoms are abdominal pain, bloating, extreme diarrhea all within mins of eating (not all the time but sometimes, it comes and goes), most always have diarrhea when I drink coffee, orange juice, tea, and grape juice. I also have very low vitamin D. I am very tired all the time do not sleep well (may be because of working swing shifts but never really slept good), I also get very irritable very easily. I have had hives sometimes when I eat, I can have the same thing to eat two days in a row and have hives one day and not the other. I have joint pain in my knees since I was 14 (I am now 36) and now my lower back hurts alot. My Dr said that I have IBS, is that what it is or something else? After reading about celiac I was sure that I had it but the biopsy was negative, how ever the blood test showed only one anitbody positive for celiac. The Dr said the my small intestines was inflammed. The biopsy did not show any signs of crohn's, colitis, no aphthous ulcers, they also said I did not have celiac. I had inflamed villi in the terminal ileum which the copy of the test results said suggestive of ileitis. What is this and what do I do about it? blood test results Gliadin Antibody IgG <3 reference range <11 negative 11-17 equivocal >17 positive Gliadin Antibody IgA (high) 25 reference range <11 negative 11-17 equivocal >17 positive Endomysical Ab (IgA) screen negative tTG-IgG Ab: <3 reference range <7 negative 7-10 equivocal >10 positive tTG IgA Ab: <3 reference range <5 negative 5-8 equivocal >8 positive IgA: 293 reference range 81 to 463 Please help me find out what this is?! Thanks

    Hives.

    I to have had hives. I know that it is a allergic reaction but I get them sometimes when I eat not often but then I can eat the same thing the next day and not have a reaction. I have had a positive blood test for celiac (not sure which) just waiting on the biopsy now. Does anyone else have this happen to them?

    Positive Blood Test

    Thanks all now I have somewhere that I can come to and ask questions to people that know what it is like!! Again thanks!
  7. I had a blood test for celiac that came back positive (not sure which test)does that mean that I do have celiac or could it be something else? I have had the biospy done but do not have the results back yet.
