... nerally prescribe it. Bad stuff is being said about it by pharmaceutical reps. Synthroid is who sponsors many of the the endocrinology conferences. TSH is the gold standard too. Just know that your doctor may not treat by symptoms and may not use Armour. If you don't begin to feel better just know there are options. ... (80 replies)

... I believe there is truth in the test you are speaking of. Just because I'm severe anemic and it comes up on my skin really dark. Only I rub the gold ring across the inside of my wrist right below my hand. I was told the darker the line shows up means the more anemic you are. ... (1 replies)
... Ever since I was a baby, my hemoglobin has been slightly low. My mom was told to increase my iron rich foods. However, out of all 8 of her children, I was the only one with this issue. My childhood/adolescence was spent always feeling tired, getting headaches, and feeling detatched and out of it. I always seemed to suffer with vertigo, though I just learned of what... (6 replies)
Mystery Anemia

... KARENLEE47--*I think* that although you don't have Celiac ((according to the biopsy)) you can still have a degree of sensitivity to gluten products. There are I think three different blood tests that can also be done in conjunction with this biopsy, if the doctor would see fit to run these. Have you had these too? However, the biopsy (along with blood testing) is meant to... (5 replies)
... Dizzyygirll--Cute name! Welcome to the boards!:wave: You sure don't fit the mold for IDA which is fairly straight forward. Yours does appear to fall along the lines of ACI from what I have learned, it's hard to say. But which anemia is the big question. Only your doctor will be able to tell you that. Reading labs, BMB's and smears is way beyond my comfort zone. FG... (4 replies)

Stomach issues
Feb 9, 2009
... I do think that this would be a key indicator that you don't have Celiac disease. Your villi would be damaged to some extend most likely, this is the sign that they are looking for if they are flattened or normal. The biopsy is the "gold standard." I do think that anemia causes nausea, it did for me at least I think this is the cause. They said that it could have been... (4 replies)

... Nancy-- Celiac disease causes malabsorption within the small intestine. The "gold standard" is biopsy in this disease. In celiac disease the foods cause damage to the lining of the intestines. Where as PA is an autoimmune disease where the parietal cells in the stomach are attached by your own body's defense and you no longer make IF for absorbing B-12 within the small... (34 replies)
... The small intestine will show some sort of damage ~usually~ (or abnormal results), to the Villi, they tend to be flattened to different degrees. A biopsy is considered the "gold standard" for diagnosis not the blood test alone. However, my doctor first did the scopes and nothing was noted. Next, I kept after him about malabsorption issues so, this is the test he chose to do... (34 replies)
... Did your doctor suggest that you do this? Usually, with anemia, it is to see what is happening in the bone marrow. If you are producing red blood cells or not and a slew of other things that I don't know much about. The so called "gold standard" tell all, is the BMB. FLFLOWERGIRL:) (1 replies)

I was just diagnosed not quite two weeks ago although I have been experiencing symptoms for months I just didn't know for sure what was going on with my body.

Blood test results
Feb 12, 2008
... Most doctors will diagnose celiac alone if you have a positive antibody test, which you did. Your body is reacting to gluten. The endoscopy biopsy is the "gold standard" for a final diagnosis. They are going to go into the beginning of your small intestine and remove the small villi that line that portion of the intestine. The villi are what pull nutrients from the food. ...
