    Its a certainty. Try to get nystatin or probiotices.

    I've tested as being utterly NOT celiac, but I've long noticed an improvement in my body pain et al when I avoid things that are gluten heavy. Wheat, for example, overpowers my systems pretty quickly. I avoid dairy for the same outcome, but not for the same reason. Anything that causes drag gets the boot.

    And yes, I've had the same blood test that sought celiac to turn up mysterious low level virus activity. That doesn't surprise me. It could be the remnant of Epstein-Barr, or any number of things that hit me when I was a child - repeated ear infections, piled-on strep episodes, even a bout with scarlet fever.

    Right after finishing a round of antibiotics (but not DURING), take Synapse's advice and take probiotics. It'll be a life saver.

    Latent viral activity can really knock down your energy and ability to sleep.

    nope, although, mine have always shown a low white blood cell count. Honestly, the white blood cell count is usually low (not always) but everything else is usually out of proportion too.

    The more I look up the more it seems that gluten intolerance is more linked with low white blood cell counts, not high... though a yeast infection seems likely because of all the fucking antibiotics I've been on. Ugh.
    Yeah that'll do it. L. acidophilus supplements usually do the trick for me when i take antibiotics.

    When I was ill after Africa I tested normal for everything; long story short, I ate like a Celiac for 6 months and starved off the untestable parasites in my joints*. When they died I magically stopped needing to sleep 16hrs a day, returned to a proper weight and became perfectly healthy, returning back to a normal diet.

    *DX from an alternative specialist, and it was my friend was DX'ed (who did the same trip as me and had the same symptoms, esp. the exhaustion and joint pain). It's the most rational explanation for the events that happened. And of course untestable is always a relative term.

    Well, the other thing that was out of proportion was a low-normal blood sugar. They might have just serendipitously caught a bad cold very early or something. Though, because that would be like my fifth infection in a year, there's still probably something wrong with me.

    ^Bacterial, I take it because you mentioned antibiotics. How much sun/vitamin D do you get? There's been a lot of good information lately about vitamin D regulating immune function.

    I'm one of those. I haven't been able to afford the real test, but I'm going to get it.

    I've never heard of a connection between WBC count and celiac - I assume there is one?
    I consistently have WBC counts just over normal (I get tested a lot because I'm also fighting anemia, which never seems to go away).

    I also avoid corn.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
