Yes and No..

Wow! It sounds like you have been through a lot recently. But I am SO glad that you decided trying to get off of gluten and had such a positive experience.

I'm not sure HOW your doctor determined that you did NOT have Celiac disease, but it sure sounds like you have at least Gluten Sensitivity- if you don't have Celiac Disease.

When you say that you have High IgG and IgE, what is your IgA? A high IgE often means a definite 'allergy' and neither one of them should be elevated if you don't have problems with gluten because, if you think about it, you just don't create antibodies to things that are not a problem for you!!


Antibodies to a food mean that you have had to 'fight' against it. Why would your immune system be fighting with something that it has no problems with?!


There also really truly is a 'disease' of non-celiac gluten sensitivity- and for sure YOU have it! And you would do well to stay off of gluten for nearly the rest of your life! You have already proven it to yourself that you ARE gluten sensitive, you do not NEED a diagnosis to tell you that you are better off without it, right?

If you were lactose intolerant, you would not need a diagnosis. You KNOW what happens when you have lactose. But the high antibodies to gluten should 'prove' to anyone that you have a problem with it!


And no, your diagnosis of hypothyroid is not 'wrong'. It just doesn't tell you what the CAUSE it, but since you are gluten sensitive, YOU may have found the cause.

As far as Vitamin D is concerned, you should defintitely get your level up to between 50 to 80 ng/ml. And while a trip to Spain would be a great way to do that, you also need to think about the rest of the winter and how you will maintain your levels, so supplements are the likely answer.

As for whether you need to get more testing done, that will have to be entirely your decision with your doctor.


I hope that this helped.
