If immunosuppressed patient & have symptoms of celiac disease, how to confirm it? Especially they will have -ve IgA ttg test and almost normal biopsy!

If there is improvement it may be challenged by re-exposing to gluten. ...Read more

What are the percentages that a type I diabetic and a celiac patient would have a child that has either celiac or type I or both conditions? My bf ha

How much gluten food does a patient need to eat before taking a celiac panel blood test? How far in advance does she need to eat gluten food? Thanks!

Sometimes none: A celiac "panel" should look for several things and some of those will be positive in people with celiac disease without any exposure to gluten at or before the time of the test. Certain antibodies will only be positive if you have been exposed to gluten a day or so before the study, but they do not define celiac disease. ...Read more

If u have celiac disease what foodstores are safe?

Safe as you make it: To be safe from exacerbations of celiac disease you must learn to read labels. Not all foods are labeled as gluten-free.

I have celiac disease, and also cannot gain weight, is apetamin safe to take, one doctor said it is not safe at all.

I have celiac disease, and also cannot gain weight, is apetamin safe to take, one doctor said it is not safe at all.

Ok but: This drug is same as Periactin- an antihistamine we used to use to stimulate appetite. HOwever it does cause most people to be drowsy and thus not the safest drug to choose. You likely have problem getting food without gluten and thus it is time for you to consult a dietitian. Make sure that you don't have another disease condition which may cause weight loss. ...Read more
