  1. Since IGA is low, that means that TTG IGA being low is an invalid test. The purpose of the IGA test is to see if you make enough for the TTG IGA test to be valid. You can always ask for the DGP IGG test. But you do have one high and symptoms so the next step should be an endoscopy/biopsies in my personal opinion (I'm not a doc). The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA You have to be eating gluten daily for 12 weeks before the blood test. A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis.
  2. If you live in the US you have a right to get your test results sent to you. You should check to see if you had the full celiac panel done. It's possible the blood test your positive on is one that they did not do. You can always buy a Nima sensor and test all of your food before you eat it. If you're not keeping food logs you should start because you could be affected a few days after you eat something. My blood test numbers only improve on a liquid diet but I'm in my 50s.
  3. That link doesn't give ingredients of prescription drugs either.
  4. Every time you get glutened it can take a few months for things to settle down. Since your symptoms never got better there is nothing different to feel when you get glutened. But I'm not a doc so I can't say it isn't something else. I noticed no improvement whatsoever for 6 months. In your position I would try strict gluten free for a few months. No processed food, no restaurants, bf needs to brush teeth when seeing you.
  5. You are supposed to keep eating gluten (1 slice of bread per day) until all celiac testing is done. For your information: The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA You have to be eating gluten daily for 12 weeks before the blood test. A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis.
  6. It's worth it to try 100% strict gluten free for a few months and see if it helps. Dr Schar makes white bread. Toast it up and see if your dad likes his sandwich with it.
  7. Celiac can cause anemia without gastro issues. It's just a blood test so if it were me I'd push for the full celiac panel being done. The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA You have to be eating gluten daily for 12 weeks before the blood test. A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis. CYA: not a doc
  8. When going to a party I find out what type of food they are serving. I then make my own equivalents and bring them with me. I have a cooler that looks like a messenger bag so it's not totally obvious. That way when they have cupcakes so do I.
  9. The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA You have to be eating gluten daily for 12 weeks before the blood test. A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis. Since you do have one positive you should get the endoscopy/biopsies. Keep eating gluten until after the endoscopy.
  10. Because she has a high result she should get the endoscopy to verify celiac. You and your daughter are different people and your numbers don't relate to each other. CYA: I am not a doc
  11. It can take many months for your IGA numbers to go down. And it can take many months for your villi damage to heal. On top of that the gluten-free diet is not as easy as it initially seems. There can be hidden gluten hidden in many things.

    I took magnesium oxide, because that's the only kind I can take. But I wouldn't recommend trying that route. Probably magnesium deficiency isn't your reason for headaches. It worked quickly for me.

    Looking for a diet...

    You can try zucchini and summer squash. I think those are easy on the insides. Homemade chicken broth would be good.
