  1. Thank you so much! So is the positive IgG pretty indicative of celiac (could it be anything else)? I havent read any of those posts on diet, so I’ll have to start. Honestly, I’m happy to start gluten free. At the start of this, I was so bummed out that I’d have to give up foods. But confirming that ...
  2. Also I should add that in the 12 weeks, my vitamin d plummeted and now am deficient. Would you guys accept a celiac diagnosis (I am pretty confident that I have it- I was sad before the challenge that I couldn’t eat gluten anymore. Now after the challenge i am EXCITED to never eat it again as I f...
  3. Looking for advice and also to help those undergoing testing. I went to my general practitioner back in August with nausea, bloating, diarrhea, migraines, sluggishness, and a feeling of general unwellness. I was eating a gluten diet at the time. My doc ordered the dual antigen screen- it came back...
  4. Ok so after 6 weeks, here is my blood results: deamidated IgA- 3 (0-19 normal) deamidated IgG- 21 (0-19 normal) tTg IgA- <2 (0-3 normal) tTg IgG- <2 (0-5 normal) endomysial IgA- 111 (87-352 neg) I am going in for a biopsy this month. The doc said it was telling...
  5. I have life insurance through my work but should have thought @ a stand alone policy! I’ll keep everyone posted. If my blood test comes back positive, would most people push for the biopsy anyway to know 100%? I know this sounds weird, but I already feel 100% certain there is damage in my intestines b...
  6. At this point, my next appointment is December 13 with me coming in to do blood work any point before then (that way the results are available by the 13th). Sounds like I should keep eating gluten in the meantime (for years my main symts have/are intestinal pain, bloating, has, general “unwell” ...
  7. Thank you! I am just wondering why the GI Specialist didn’t act like the first blood test was a firm diagnosis? Maybe something got lost in translation between him & office? I have read that some tests are more effective than others, so I figured the test I got maybe wasn’t the “good one.” I m...
  8. Sorry for the wonky format- looks like I had a 39 on the dual antigen screen. I can’t get the test to pull in a better format. The GI doc said that he would repeat blood tests but that he admitted that since I had been gluten-free that it may skew my results (seriously shocked that my levels were b...
  9. I have no idea!! My gastroenterologt’s practice has horrible reviews (but the only practice in my toe ) & truth be told, he didn’t offer me any valuable information. He didn’t even comment on my original results. I will post my original results here & see if anyone has feedback.
  10. Ok- so back in September I went to my primary care doctor with symptoms of bloating, horrible diarrhea, nausea, etc. I took a blood test, and it came back positive for Celiac Disease. I was gluten free for about 8 weeks when I finally made it in to the Specialist. When I got there, I took another...
