Jualz replied to Jualz's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsMy tests were completed by Sonora Quest Labs. Here's what they said about the test I took. Method This panel includes a test for tTG IgA antibodies (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay [ELISA]) and total IgA concentration (immunoturbidometry). When the tTG IgA test is positive, an EMA IgA antibody test is performed (immunofluorescence assay); if positive, the EMA titer will be determined and reported. If the IgA concentration is low, a tTG IgG antibody test will be performed (ELISA). There is an additional charge, associated with an additional CPT code, for the latter 3 tests (EMA IgA, EMA titer, and tTG IgG) Basically, I tested positive for the iTG antibody IgA so they did the other tests - which I was negative. None of my docs want me to go through a biopsy. They both said it wasn't needed (even both disagree on the Celiac diagnosis). I have no other symptoms other than fatigue and pain from my lymphatic malfmormation tumors in my neck. I can't remember the last time I had a stomach ache - 2 or 3 years ago was the last time I remember. Thank you so much for your help.
Jualz posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsMany of you here seem so knowledgeable about Celiac and test result evaluations. The more I read the more I get confused. If any of you can help me out I would great appreciate it. I have two doctors. One says I'm positive for Celiac and the other says I do not have Celiac. Both docs recognize my thyroid issue. Here are my test results (with ranges in parenthesis). I'm going to type them like it is on my test results - sorry if some of it looks like a repeat. tTG Antibody IgG 3.13 (<20) - Result: Negative Celiac Disease PNL, Adult W/ RFLX - Celiac Disease PNL, Adult W/ REFLX ttg Antibody, IgA 74.03H (<20) Result: Positive Celiac Disease PNL, Adult W/ RFLX - IgA 260 (81-463 mg/dL) Microsomal TPO-Ab >1000H (<35) Thyroglobulin Antibodies 986H (<41) TSH: 10.6 (.45-4.50) Background: I have congenital defect called Lymphatic Malformations in head and neck (basically malformed lymph nodes and channels in near my thyroid). Diagnosed with Chronic Anemia three years ago (suspected blood loss from lymphatic malformation but not confirmed). My Anemia has been treated on a regular basis with Venofer (Iron Infusion IV's) which has solved that issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm so confused as to why one doc would say I have Celiac and the other say I don't have it.
