  1. Thank you very very much for this information. Whom should I get to do this test? Rheumatologist, Immunologist, Oncologist (yes forgot to say I also have Mgus) Family Dr. and I live in Ontario does anyone know if this is covered under OHIP or cost? I pay about $45. for the standard blood test for Gluten Allergy. I can see my Family Dr. faster than any of my specialists so maybe I will just take it to her...she is wonderful and very quick on the ball so I am fortunate that way. I ate gluten free today, was to be my New Years Resolution but if I need to eat a bit every day until this test is done then I will. Also I heard there can be genetic testing of some sort?
  2. Hello 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 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.
