Tigerpawtoo added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsTests Results I'm ConfusedI've been suffering various symptoms over the last three years. Tested slight RA positive, have Reynaud's - but tests for Sjogrens and Lupus negative. I'm frustrated the Dr's can't find the cause. My recent search led me to Celiac. I've been ordering my own blood work hoping for answers, but now that I have my results back I'm confused.
All negative but a slight low immunoglobin A Qn. Spent hours researching this, so far it seems I may need additional tests to rule out Celiac's disease? One site said AGA and EMA are required when you have a low immuniglobulin - I think these were done with my blood panel but I'm not sure.
Also another site said that if you do have a low immunoglobulin A Qn other antibodies testing for autoimmune disease may show a false negative. Does this mean I could still have Lupus or Sjogrens but test negative????
Should I be concerned and what other test would I need if any????? It's been so long and I'm so frustrated having no answer, appreciate any help or direction.
