    Dx'd & Getting Re-Tested For Celiac

    Hey, everyone! So, I went to the doctor's yesterday with my loving boyfriend and I got diagnosed with Turner's Syndrome *sigh* My karyotype tested positive much to my dismay And, also, I tested positive for osteopenia from my dexa scan as well. So, I have to get my bones back into shape so it doesn't progress into fractures and such. Anyone have helpful advice for me? I would appreciate anything! I have more testing coming up back with my normal clinic, but, it's just double checking things because of my brand new diagnosis. My thyroid tested fine and well as my adrenal glands too so that's good. I was also told that I do have a chance for children so that made me really happy! Also, I'm being re-tested for Celiac with IgA and IgG testing. My endocrinologist didn't like the other test (which I've posted the results on these forums) or something - that was a confusing part of the appointment.

    Well - Now I'm Just Scared, Confused, Angry And Emotional

      *hugs* Yeah, it's unfortunate...but, thank you for your concern! :)    And, yeah, me too - I'll get there, though! It'll just be a little while. Haha.

    Well - Now I'm Just Scared, Confused, Angry And Emotional

      Yeah, but if these tests come out positive there is almost a 100% chance I'll never conceive naturally - it'll be a double whammy on my system *sigh* Thank you though, I am really trying to not dwell on it and it's working :)    There is always adoption - but, I just don't know. That's a whole other ball game I'm not sure of yet....   I don't really have "issues", per se, it's just this news really has me bothered to the core. I guess it's just a women thing to have children. lol. I will go if it gets too bad, though. 
  5. UPDATE Sorry - just too much to put into this post
  6. Last night - was the first time I have cried for that long in years. ---- I finally got to visit my now official endocrinologist yesterday morning and it has completely left me shaking to my core. I don't want to bore everyone with tiny details so I'm just going to talk about the most important facts - if I don't vent and cope, it's going to eat me. She told me, that my first doctor who ordered my hormone tests should have, is that I basically have no more estrogen in my system. It was un-measurable. This and something else, which I can't remember now thank to all of this news, make her think I might have P.O.F (Primary Ovarian Insufficiency). And, to go along with this, that I also could have Turner's Syndrome. She also said that my CT scan for my pituitary gland was normal, but that an MRI would have been better. ...........just. wow. I thought I was healthy. I thought everything was basically fine. My boyfriend and I have been talking about getting married and having children someday so happily within the last few weeks. What am I going to tell him...? Is he still going to want to be with me? He wants to be a father.... I now have a packet of blood tests (including thyroid ones), a multiple-time cortisol test plus a dexa scan and another ultrasound lined up. I'm also going&prescribed to begin HRT after I get these tests done. Plus, Celiac is of course still not off the table quite yet because of: my non-diagnosed IBS, I probably have the DH skin rash and now my possible Turner's. *sigh* My depression has kicked into high gear. So much so that I may actually look into depression medicinal help or counseling. I'm trying to stay positive, though! I just have to accept all of this because it's not going to ever go away. It will take time, though.
  7. Thank you!! I wrote down all of those tests you said. I'm going to my first ever endocrinologist visit on the 22nd. I'm sure she is going to be a more educated doctor on this particular issue than my "general" doctors at the nearby clinic. Do you know what she is going to need? What tests she's going to want to do? Or, can I just visit her once and see what she says and go to my general doctors? I understand - it's just everyone on this board seems so knowledgeable so I wanted to ask anyways. Thank you, too, as well
  8. (Here is my Celiac Blood Panel results to see them - it might help shed some light on things.) Hey, everyone! I'm back. And, I have new things to ask. I think I have Thyroid problems. And, I'm also still eating gluten regularly to make sure I keep up on it just in case my G.I doctor which I'm still waiting to get refereed to does decide to do the endoscopy and biopsy. But, right now within the past few days I feel horrible - miserable even. I feel like lava (really warm) which isn't fun.... Anyways, my suspected non-Celiac symptoms are Increased sensitivity to cold Dry skin Puffy face Muscle weakness Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness Thinning hair My grandmother also had thyroid problems which makes me suspect that I have them since they were passed down. And, I have low hormones and my overall IgA is low. My neck feels a little painful&puffy recently plus a little lump possibly, too. Can anyone help?? Thank you!

    (Update) Got My Blood Test In!

      No, actually, the results showed negative with a verrrrrrry slightly possible weak positive for transglutaminase. But, my doctor is in the process of referring me to a g.i doctor anyways (thank goodness!). I'm also possibly IgA deficient because of my thyroid so I'm going into an endocrinologist next week.    Thanks so much for asking, too! :D
  10. So, I finally got my results back from my doctor - and, they're not what I wanted. I see they were done by Quest Labs nearby, too. Anyways, I'm listing everything I see for results: -- Immunoglobulin A Serum 74 (81-463 mg/dL) Tis. Transglutaminase IGA < 3.0 (< 4.0 U/mL) Reference Range for Transglutaminase IGA Abs: Less than 4.0 U/mL ... Negative 4.0 - 10.0 U/mL .... Weak Positive Greater than 10.0 U/mL ... Positive Endomysial AB (IGA) Negative Reticulin AB (IGA) Screen Negative Gliadin Peptide IGG 3 (< 20 Units) Gliadin Peptide IGA 4 (< 20 Units) References Range for Gliadin (Deamidated Peptide) Ab (IgG, IgA): Gliadin (Deamidated) Ab, (IgG) < 20 Units : Antibody Not Detected > or = 20 Units : Antibody Detected Gliadin (Deamidated) Ab, (IgA) < 20 Units : Antibody Not Detected > or = 20 Units : Antibody Detected -- The results are under the name of the test and if it's underlined that's my actual results. The numbers in the parentheses are the references except for the Deamidated tests which I wrote out fully. Anyways, can anyone please help me with this? What do you guys think? Also, my doctor is referring me to a GI specialist (or just doctor?? I'll find out after my call-back) locally - I'm wondering what that doctor will think. And, if they're going to give me a recommendation for an endoscopy and biopsy. Also, if anyone needs me to talk about my symptoms I have a whole thread about that already. Thanks so much

    (Update) Got My Blood Test In!

    Hey, everyone! So, thanks to the amazing people of this site I took their advice and convinced my doctor to order my Celiac Blood Panel and she did. She was so sweet and tested me for H. Pylori before we even discussed Celiac (which - I knew it wasn't it because I was on antibiotics last month!). She listened to everything I had to say, knew that I had to be eating gluten for the tests to be accurate, and even let me show her the entire Celiac panel and offered to add them before she found out the healthcare system already has a full Celiac panel on file for lab testing orders. Also, she added it to her lab testing favorites in the computer, too. Anyways, I walked into to my local hospital this morning and the lab took three vials of blood for my testing. I am curious, though - it that going to be enough for the entire panel? -tTG IgA and tTG IgG -DGP IgA and DGP IgG -EMA IgA -Total Serum IgA -AGA IgA and AGA IgG Anyways, thanks everyone and here's to finding out my results soon! Update (9/23/14): Called my doctor's office and they have my results in! They've been having issues with getting results, so I had to wait till this week for an appointment anyways. Tomorrow is the big day - I find out. Will get help tomorrow evening from everyone here
  12. Hey, and welcome to the board! I have many of those symptoms for years now as well, which I also came unto the board and asked around, so I just not two hours ago got my Celiac Blood Panel put in at my nearest hospital lab The only different thing for me is that when I experience pain or discomfort it mostly is located on the right side, not the left. But, I digress.
  13. Reading all of these descriptions, I realize I'm going through "brain fog" right now! In the past, I always felt like I was in some sort of weird dream. But, now along with still having that sensation but very rarely, it's mostly: difficulty recalling words, forgetting things mid-sentence (especially when someone interrupts), general exhaustion/fatigue, terrible memory sometimes, hard to recall facts, and probably the most embarrassing is I'm always asking a co-worker at work to double-check my work because it's hard for me to be confident to recall everything and I have to make sure everything is perfect where I work. *sigh* Yeah, I can't wait to be rid of this. I'll throw a party that day as well, jpt2014.
  14. Thank you!!!! I wrote down those vitamins/nutrients you mentioned for a later time and put it next to my computer at work to remember. The new doctor I went to this afternoon, which I'm making my "go to" now for most everything, was amazing! She was so sweet and tested me for H. Pylori before we even discussed Celiac (which - I knew it wasn't it because I was on antibiotics last month!). She listened to everything I had to say, knew that I had to be eating gluten for the tests to be accurate, and even let me show her the entire Celiac panel and offered to add them before she found out the healthcare system already has a full Celiac panel on file for lab testing orders. Also, she added it to her lab testing favorites in the computer, too. So basically, as soon as I get a chance, I'm heading to the hospital to get my testing done Hmmmmm - that concerns me greatly. I'm pretty sure that diabetes and thyroid problems run in my family as it is. I'll have to go get those checked out as well when I get a chance.....
  15. Through research, I have been thinking that it could be Celiac so I'm glad other people on the board feel that it could be, too I have a full symptom list printed out and ready! And, also, thank you nvsmom for the panel list - I don't think I have one or two of those. I'll make sure to write those down, too! Also, do you think it would be advantageous to get some vitamin testing included? Or, would that be kind of superfluous? Thank you!
