Hi, I have a list of symptoms that make me think I might have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, but I don't know if there are other things out there or if I am just looking for answers, and I don't entirely trust the doctor (from health services at my university) to tell me.
Also, I had a blood anti-body test. I have slightly elevated antigliadin antibodies, and normal level tissue transglutamine antibodies. I can't figure out if celiac or gluten intolerance is still possible with this test profile. Does anyone know.
These are my symptoms:
-extreme fatigue (last few months, with less severe fatigue for quite a while before that)
-difficulty concentrating (I've joked for a few years that I've developed some sort of late onset ADD)
-lifelong digestion issues (gas, bloating, more-frequent-than-normal diarrhea)
-osteoperosis (when I was running a lot; this was several years ago)
-lifelong difficulty putting on weight
-failure to thrive (as a small child the doctor described me this way. Also, I am not short but am significantly shorter than my siblings.)
-sometime canker sores
-sometime sensitivity to lactose.
-I DO NOT HAVE majorly debilitating digestive issues or iron-deficiency anemia
I realize these symptoms are really random and some may be totally related, but I would just like to know if pursuing celiac testing is worthwhile and what else I should be tested for. Thank you so much!
