I've just found old blood tests results to compare with my current picture. In december 2010 I had a positive IgA tissue transglutaminase antibody of 162 u/ml (reference range less than 15) and a negative IgA endomysial antibody. A biopsy showed no signs of coeliac disease and I also had no positive response to a gluten free diet (done after the biopsy).
Montelukast stabilised my asthma and I carried on eating a normal diet except for avoiding some colours and sulphites. Fast forward to 2014 when I had a huge reaction to something and ended up in high dependency in hospital. Since then I have been unable to eat any salicylates and have reacted badly to histamine containing foods. After a lot of experimentation I found that the FAILSAFE diet mostly worked for controlling the asthma if gluten and caesin free and very very low in Salicylates (ie no apples, no carrots etc.) . Recent blood tests have shown that my B12 is low (at 146, and 144 ) and my TSH is elevated going up from 2.93 in March (non fasting) through 5.43 (July again non fasting) to 7.89 (september fasting but with gluten for 10 days before the test) and finally 9.55 November (fasting no gluten since Sept.) I am supplementing the B12 with drops (30.000% of daily amount every day) and am finally on thyroid replacement and feeling a bit better though it is early days. Can anyone comment on whether I am likely to have coeliac / gluten problems as I am due to have one of my children tested (he still eats gluten). I seem to have severe reactions to gluten and to dairy at the moment but then I have severe reactions to lots and lots of things! It would be great to be able to expand the very restrictive diet sometime as it is not necessarily good for my long term health.
