  1. Hi GottaSki, Thanks for the feedback. Getting really nervous about my appointment tomorrow but confident that all of this information and support will help! Thanks!
  2. Hi nvsmom, I am hopeful that the doctor will agree to the additional test and if not, I agree with you...I will find one that will. I am guessing that I should wait until I go to the doctor before trying the gluten-free diet. Thanks for your help!
  3. Thank you so much....I am going back to the doctor on Friday and am thrilled to have all of this information!!! Not to bash any other site but I tried contacting another site's local support group only to be told the contact no longer was with the group and to contact the national support group. The national support group told me to go to a doctor....extremely helpful. So once again, I am so glad I found this site and greatly apprecite your help! Thanks again.
  4. Thanks! I will ask for the additional test; however, I am concerned that the doctor may not agree to additional testing since these were negative. So am I correct in thinking that my low immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum result could give me a false negative result?
  5. Hi, I am so happy to have found this site!!! I am trying to get a better understanding of exactly what my blood test does or doesn't reveal and am hoping some of you can help educate me. I have tried researching the results myself but the information that I am getting from my doctor and the information that I am getting from my research are not the same. My blood work test resluts show the following: Celiac Disease Panel Endomysial Antibody IgA: Negative, range - Negative t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA: <2, range - Negative 0-3, Weak Positive 4-10, Positive >10 Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum: 73, range - 91-414 t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG (auto-generated/reflex): <2, range - Negative 0-5, Weak Positive 6-9, Positive >9 Vitamin D, 25 - Hydroxy: 24.1, range - 30.0-100.0 According to my doctor, I do not have Celiac Disease. However, I have read on several different sites that having a low immunoglobulin A level can be an indicator of the disease and cause a false Negative result. I have also read that a low vitamin D level can also be an indicator of the disease. I would greatly appreciate any information. Thanks!
