  1. The Serum IGA showed he had the antibodies, the IgA/IgG tTG(tissue transglutaminase) was 10 so they didn't run the IgA/IgG EMA. His H. Pylori was positive, though.
  2. I tested negative for celiac with a Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA of 6 in January of this year, symptoms were sudden onset joint pain, previous episode of thyroiditis amd 10+ years of "IBS". My 5 year old son has been having issues off and on for months - stomach pains, constipation and allergy shiners culminating this past week with vomiting most everything he has eaten with the exception of potatoes and rice based cereal. His doctor ordered tests for h pylori, liver enzymes, serum IGA and Tissue Transglutimase Ab, IgA Reflex To Endomysial Ab, IgA Titer. His liver labs are good, the rest are pending. My doctor did not order a serum IGA when I was tested. Would that skew my results? I have been off of gluten for a month or so at a time and felt pretty good but have a hard time sticking with it without a "diagnosis" TIA.
  3. I would go off of the wheat and dairy. In fact, I would do a hypoallergenic diet for a month and see how you feel - no wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, nightshade veggies, citrus, artificial sweeteners, coffee and alcohol. Add one food group at a time back in your diet for 2 weeks at a time to see how you react. Depending on your insurance I would see if you could have a 24 hour ph and motility. It is possible something like physical like achalasia or gastric outlet obstruction is the cause. Have you had a gallbladder ultrasound? I'm sorry.
  4. Thank you. I found that Garden Of Life Probiotics contain the strain.
  5. Do you still eat dairy? Could that be the culprit?
  6. Thank you, Bubba's Mom. I posted another thread about B. lactis probiotics. I do have digestive enzymes and will make sure I take them in case of accidental glutening as well!
  7. I have read that it helps when you accidentally get glutened? Can anyone recommend a brand that has a live strain? I have a Whole Foods and a Sunflower Market near me. thanks in advance.
  8. I did 3 1/2 days of gluten. Had the test yesterday. This is the result: Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA. 6 If Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA is negative, the Endomysial Ab, IgA Titer by IFA is not performed. INTERPRETIVE DATA: Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody (tTG), IgA 19 Units or less ........... Negative 20-30 Units ................ Weak Positive 31 Units or greater ........ Moderate to Strong Positive
  9. Thank you for the welcome. I have supplements VIT D and calcium after going off cow's milk last year. I had a physical last fall and all labs, including vitamin levels, were normal.
  10. Also, my father died of pancreatic cancer when he was pretty young (47). There have been recent advances in the studies of leaky gut and GI carcinomas - genetic link?
  11. Or MAJOR symptom? I am 35 years old. Since my early 20s I have suffered from IBD, depression. Difficulty getting pregnant at 25, carpal tunnel after 1st pregnancy at 27, brian fog after 2nd pregnancy at 30, autoimmune thyroiditis at age 32, elevated pancreatic enzymes at age 33. About 2 months ago I started having AWFUL joint pain in my hands. I went off of gluten, soys, eggs and dairy (modified hypoallergenic diet) and had almost immediate relief. I have previously been off of soy after my thyroid problem and have been off eggs and dairy before during a vegan period which would make gluten the likely culprit. I have been off gluten for almost 3 weeks, had some bread and noodles yesterday, and have asked my doc to check antibodies. Should I gluten load for the test? Would the lest be less effective if I have been off gluten? I am paying for testing out of my own pocket and would like to know if I am celiac or just intolerant (is there a difference?) Also how many of you had people think you were a hypochondriac due to the array of symptoms? Drives me crazy. My aunt is an RN that works with allergists/immunologists who told her that food does not cause R.A. Thank you in advance.
