  1. Hi, thank you for your reply. I plan on going back for peace of mind. Can you describe your continuing symptoms after your blood test please?
  2. Hi all, Back in September, I had stomach issues for a few weeks. My doctor said it was a virus but ordered me a blood test for Coeliac Disease as my sister has the condition. My results came back as: Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies (tTG-IgA) : 4.9 (5.00 - 20.00) Doctor said nothing...
  3. Hi all My doctor called me and said my blood test came back perfectly normal. My symptoms have all but gone and my stools have returned to normal too. Still have a little gas now and then but the one problem that remains is that I've lost my appetite or hunger I should say. Does this warrant a trip...
  4. From what I've read, on rare occasions blood tests can be negative if you have Celiac. Best thing to do is to continue having gluten in your diet and then explain to your doctor about your symptoms and push for a biopsy! All the best
  5. Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated. As easy as it is to worry that you may have Celiac, there are a few conditions out there that mimic Celiac symptoms, namely Giardia or related parasite/viral infections which can last a few weeks or even IBS. If my sister was not a Celiac, I wouldn't...
  6. It's been almost 2 weeks since my symptoms began. I'm convinced i'm a Celiac! Don't really have any abdominal pain and my gas and bloating has reduced but my loose stools haven't stopped. Most of the time they are loose and a few times actual diaherrea. But the main thing is they always float. Sorry...
  7. You could just have IBS following a nasty bug or virus. The problem with Celiac is that its symptoms mirror those of many other conditions. Unfortunately my sister has both but my mum was tested negative for Celiac.
  8. I get my results on the 15th September I think. I too have a lot of gas, burping and flatulence. Is your diahorrea on/off or is it a case of every bowel movement is watery/loose? I don't have diabetes but my sister does and last year she was also diagnosed with Celiac.
  9. Hey, i've got similar symptoms! I've awaiting the results of my celiac blood test. My family also keep thinking my gut has been disturbed by some sort of virus or bug. Let us know how you get on please! Hope it goes well for you
  10. Many thanks again, i'm from the UK by the way, i don't think they perform that many tests. From what I've read the main test performed here is Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG.
  11. Wow, thats an extremely informative post, thank you very much. I'll make a note of comparing my results and test paremeters with my sister's data. As for now, I guess it's nothing other than a really anxious wait!
  12. Hi thank you for the quick reply, i understand it makes sense for me to be tested. Is the blood test usually accurate?
  13. Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I have a diabetic sister who was also diagnosed with celiac a year ago. For the past week or so I've had an upset stomach without fever. Symptoms are: - lack of appetite and weight loss - stomach gas, burping & flatulence - loose stools, sometimes diaherrea...
