  1. i dont think its that unusual, mine was similar, my TTG IgA was >250 and my TTG IgG was 2 with the negative range being <15 everyone tests differently
  2. im sorry you havn't been able to access the blood tests but im really glad your rash has made such a great improvement in just a week thats amazing hopefully you will continue to improve even more i believe there are home testing kits if you really want to pursue it but i dont know how accurate...
  3. awesome thank you so much! im not in the us so i can't find those particular brands, are they "young green jackfruit in brine" is that the right type? im asuming the ones in syrup would be too sweet. those ideas sound great i didn't even think about using it in a stir fry. i actually just...
  4. hey krstannkaty did you get tested and rule out celiac disease before going gluten free? if not now is your best opportunity to since you've only been gluten free for a week. most people find it very hard to do a gluten challenge to be tested months or years later. there definetely alot of...
  5. thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
  6. i do take iron and b12 tablets as well but i think it depends on the person and what your levels are at but definitely keep at eye on it thats so exciting! where are you moving to? i'm from sydney, i havn't ate out yet but i know there are alot of options. the grocery stores carry lots of gluten...
  7. i usually buy pre made falafels as the majority i've found are gluten free and vegan. they are really good on a wrap with hummus, lettuce, tomato/salads or even the same on a sandwich. i also eat them with a salad or as a side with a curry. the only recipe i've made from scratch is from http...
  8. hey i've been vegetarian for 8 years and gluten free for almost a year. its difficult since they are kind of opposites. i actually just noticed the advertisemnts from the cancer counil here is australia now has meat listed next to alchol, cigarettes and the sun. a few years ago when i read about...
  9. same stairs and squatting are the absolute worst for me. for pain relief ice and ibuprofen gel are the most helpful for me. for me exercise wise, i've given up on most of the physio exercises and am doing the most i can of movements that don't aggravate the pain. walking as much as i can and exercising...
  10. i know what you mean, its understandable to be disappointed, its so exhausting and frustrating when doctors can't figure out whats wrong with you. i hope you get some answers soon there are alot of very knowledgeable people on this forum who may be able to offer some advice
  11. they are all in the ref range so you've tested negative for Celiac, your total IGA is in the normal range as well which means you are not IgA deficient and its unlikely that they are false negatives were you eating gluten for a few weeks before the blood test, if you had already gone gluten...
  12. Yes i have celiac been gluten-free for 10 months, had an iron deficiency (was hoping that was the cause of knee pain) and am being treated for suspected sjogrens syndrome. im surprised they didn't do other bloodwork for you, one of the first tests i had in relation to joint pain was for rheumatoid...
  13. i have a very similar experience i never injured my knees. started getting mild joint pain in 2012 was told it was PFS and given exercises, they didn't help and caused me alot more pain. then in late 2015 its started to get worse saw a new doctor, got xrays and an mri and said PFS and sent me to...
  14. an allergy test for tap water sounds quite suspicious, i've never seen any type of water listed as part of a food allergy test panel. i can't imagine how that is possible to test for, sounds like it would be a extremely rare allergy also doesn't tap water vary depending where you are. do you have...
