  1. Hi Claire, Thanks for this post! Hope you're having a good day - Gina
  2. Interesting question - I was diagnosed with 'a tarsal coalition' in both feet - confirmed via x-rays. This means that I was born without a joint between two tarsal bones, and the bones have since fused together, since I didn't get it diagnosed/treated in childhood. It is gentic (so I have...
  3. JoAnn - I think you missed that I was talking about 'IgA' levels, not 'anti-gliadin IgA' levels - As you will see, the person who posted the question had normal anti-gliadin IgA (and IgG), but her first result that she listed is NOT an 'antigliadin' result... it is for 'an overall IgA'...
  4. Sorry to tag on again, but your post got me into reading about 'gammopathy' - abnormal IgA, IgG, and or IgM levels... It made me think to tell you that you may want to consider asking your doc to blood test you for your overall IgG and IgM levels, too...and to re-test your overall IgA at the...
  5. Hi - this post got me interested.... I ran a google search - With these two 'words': "hyperimmunoglobulinemia" AND "IgA" It gave me this page of URLS - hopefully, you'll find your answer somewhere in there... http://www.google.com/search?as_q=hyperimm...ch=&safe=images...
  6. Hi - I have not heard of a too high 'overall' IgA... I have only heard of that test result being a problem if one's body isn't producing IgA antibodies, and therefore it skews the other test results - but, it is ouside the norm, so I suppose there is reason for worry...at least your level...
  7. Hi, Lynne. Nice to know your name Just jumping in to say that and, I don't see how you could have offended Claire ...? (Besides, she doesn't seem like the type to take offense quickly...) LOVE, Gina
  8. Hi, Lizzy, Thanks for the update. I am sorry that your doc was rude. Obviously, she must be one of those docs who are NOT in 'the doctoring biz' to be loving... Please try to see a GOOD GI, if you have a choice of docs - If you can choose, perhaps you can post here, ON A NEW THREAD, asking...
  9. So do I... I am 48, though, and have thought that the night sweats were just part of what to expect now... Anyone try a soy supplement yet? I am thinking of trying Revival. I think I am perpetually dehydrated now, too, due to the night sweats - I wake in a pool of water...
  10. First, butt in anytime around here...one never knows when a symptom you have may be one others have already researched...or are also worried about...and therefore needs researching... Unfortunately, I don't know anything about this...nor do I have this symptom, even though I am 48 - I do wear...
  11. Glad that you, too, are finding this thread to be useful ...it's just invaluable to get to hear from so many people - to learn about the true extent of how gluten has poisoned each of us... and to be able to share knowledge, and emotions. We are all very lucky that technology (the Net) can help...
  12. Hastypastry? Good one. THANKS, CLAIRE! You rock! Gina
  13. Glad that you are learning from us and the Net, & books - there IS a lot to learn...but, be sure to get regular sleep, too ;=) Some of us will be 'tracking' this thread now, Lizzy, so be sure to pull it back up and use the 'add reply' button at the end of it when you get more tests results...
  14. Just tagging on what I found while playing around with PubMed...I plugged in "celiac" and "Ataxia" in their search field - From this particular result (which gave the full article), http://www.pubmedcentral.gov/articlerender...z&artid=1069074 I am copying/pasting part of it: "The...
  15. Claire! I want to add my THANKS for this info and thanks, also, to George for the other forum info! My Dad has both neuropathy and ataxia, and my gene (DQ8) is most likely from his ethnic heritage. This helps me understand what else I am preventing by being 100% gluten-free! BTW.... There...
