just like honey posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHi, I am new on here (well I've been reading for awhile, but just decided to start commenting)and I have a question about IgA Deficiency. I was wondering if you have to be eating gluten to have the total serum IgA test be accurate. Years ago when I started having stomach issues(before gluten free) I was tested for Celiacs, but the doctor only requested one test, the TTG Ab, IgA. I tested negative, but was considering getting tested again, but I have now been eating gluten free for 3 months. I understand that the TTG Ab, IgA should test negative on a gluten free diet, but how about the total serum IgA? Any help appreciated. the main reason I am thinking about getting tested again is because anytime I have a certain health issue I find myself linking back to this site (but the list of symptoms are for another time )
just like honey replied to tinab3girls's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsI have a question about the IGA total Serum testing. Do you have to be eating gluten for this to be accurate? I tested negative for TTG AB, IGA, but am now wondering if I should go back and get my IGA total tested, but I have been on a gluten-free Diet for 3 months now.
