Kat96 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsIga Deficient With Igg Subclass Deficiency And Postive AnaHello everyone, this is my first post and I am SO confused. I have had the typical Celiac blood test twice over last few years and both were negative. I have been IgA deficient, its always been in my records but I did not realise that it could render me with a false negative. My Immunologist did IgG subclass test and I was deficient in IgG subclass 2 (explains the bronchitis and pneumonia frequent colds/flu) I also tested positive for ANA. My liver function is always high.
Ok here is the question..........do I biopsy or not? I have been gluten free in past and felt absolutely wonderful. I haven't been eating gluten-free as my Immunologist said if I am not gluten intollerant or allergy then if I go gluten-free it could lead to cancer because even just a tiny bit of accidental gluten would be harmful. He recommended glutening up and then biopsy. I would prefer to go back to gluten-free diet and follow it strictly, no cheats here and there and make family members understand this is not something I can cheat at.
Thank you for taking the time to read my question and I hope someone will be able to shed some light or someone else here is in same situation...IgA deficienty and IgG subclass deficient.
