rosstqz added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsStuck In The Country With A 'strong Positive' Blood TestHi guys
I'm a little shell-shocked as I read this because I don't have any real symptoms that I'm aware of and took the test now because I was planning on going off gluten in solidarity with my wife.
Anyway, I have a result of >136 Units for tissue transglutanimase IgA (total serum IgA of 2.54g/L) consistent with Celiac disease. However as I'm living in the country for the next 6 weeks I can't get the secondary test done.
How certain is it that I've got this thing? I would just like to know probabilities for my own ability to process it all. I understand I can't go off the gluten in the meantime.
Grateful for your advice!!
