livebetter added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsNeed Help Interpreting Celiac Test ResultsHi everyone,
Just got these blood test results:
Celiac Disease Ab Screen w/Rfx
Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IGA -> result says 20 and is flagged as High
Reference interval for this test is:
Weak Positive 20-30
Moderate to Strong Postive >30
t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA -> result says <2 U/ml
Reference Interval for this test is:
Weak Positive 4-10
Immunoglobulin A, Qn Serum -> result says 305 mg/dL
Refernce Interval for this test is 70-400
So - the Deamidated Gliadin IgA is Weak Positive, the tTG IgA is Negative, and the Immunoglobulin A Qn Serum is within normal range...
Do these results mean that I have a gluten sensitivity, and that I might benefit from excluding gluten from my diet? Or do I need any additional testing to confirm whether I have a gluten sensitivity? I don't have any digestive issues (that I am aware of), but I've had psoriasis and skin dermatitis for 30+ years, and I am trying to determine if a gluten sensitivity may be the cause of my psoriasis (or if it makes the psoriasis worse)...
Thanks for your help!
