bellwalker added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsBloodwork Question- 20 Mth OldMy son has been suffering from what has been called extremly rare & severe full body eczema for months now. It actually first when he was 4 mths old in his diaper area and has recently spread to his whole body. Everyone is confused by what it is caused from (we are doing a biposy soon) but I recently went to an Allergist to do some testing.
He gave me the results today and didn't really explain them, instead just said that he was negative for everything. After I left, I saw that 2 levels were actually low and he made a note to retest him in a year.
My question, can someone help me figure out what the low parts are/what do they mean?
His Celiac Disease Comprehensive Panel:
TTG Antibody, IGA- <3 (normal is <5)
Gliadin Antibody (IGA)- <3 (negative <11)
IGA, Serum- 17 (normal range 24-121) LOW
TTG Antibody, IGG- <3 (negative <7)
Immunoglobulin G- 522 (normal 533-1078) LOW
Immunoglobulin M- 52 (normal 26-218)
Immunoglobulin E- 19 (<OR=93)
So like I said, the doctor said he was fine, my question is what are the low results? I'm confused by what they mean. All I got was the little note saying to retest in a year.
Thank you for all of the help. I really appreciate it.
