I appreciate input

Thanks for your input. Since my post, I have received some blood work back that indicate I do not have diabetes or hypothyroid issues. However, the blood tests do show I have high levels of IgA (anti-gliadin antibodies). I had read about 1 month ago that gluten sensitivity can result in neuropathy – so I have been eating gluten free for about 3 weeks. No improvement yet.

Have any of you heard anything about IgA, going gluten free, and helping with neuropathy?

My neuro has now asked me to to do a full panel of genetic testing for Charcot-Marie-Tooth. This will likely be my next step. What do you think? If that does not work, I will take your advice on the spinal tap.

Thank you!
