New here! In short, I’m a 22yo female with chronic nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, painful diarrhea, 90+ pound weightloss in a bit over a year, tingly hands/feet, awful fatigue, and stomach pains with a history of anxiety/depression dating back to childhood, but absolutly no other previous conditions.
I think there’s a possibility I have celiac, but my doctors don’t seem to be too helpful communicating with me the meaning of the tests results. They pretty much just said “hmmmm...it could be, but maybe not” which to me is a lame answer. I was hoping someone could take a look at these results and interprete if it sounds like it could be Celiac or not.
igA- 595 mg/dL *went up from 555 three weeks ago if that means anything, they accidentally ordered the same test twice
Ttg- 1 U/mL
HLA DQ2- positive
HLA DQ8- negative
Duodenal mucosa with patchy mildly increased intraepithealial lymphocytes, preserved villous architecture
Gastric oxyntic mucosa with focal mild chronic inflammation
focal active colitis in right colon
*I don’t know if this is relavent, but my bilirubin is slightly elevated
I’m still waiting on results from deamidated gliadin peptic antibodies igA igG. I was also wondering if anyone here is a cigarette smoker and if that delayed diagnosis, I read that somewhere, and I do smoke maybe a pack and a half a week as I have been for the last 5 years (symptoms started a year and a half ago). What do yas think? Should I cut out the gluten? Right now, while I don’t eat a lot, when I do it’s definilty not gluten free.
