      Thanks I will see if I can get retested with the additional test.  
      Is there a test for all the nutrients or do I need to just bring the list of items I would like them to test for?  
      Can Celiac and NCGI affect the CBC?  My doctor has been trying to figure out why I would have a low WBC count.

      Thanks for your reply.
      I am planning on going gluten free for a few months to see if I start feeling better.   I was not sure if I should get more blood test to confirm it is not celiac before going gluten free and assuming NCGI.  
      I have had my thyroid levels checked over the past 8 months and it goes up and down.

      Test Reults
      Hello all,
      I have been reading a lot of information from this site and it is very helpful.  I wanted to know if someone could help explain the results I received from the doctor.  
      I have read on here several time that a person should have the full celiac panel.
      ·         tTG IgA and tTG IgG
      ·         DGP IgA and DGP IgG
      ·         EMA IgA
      ·         total serum IgA
      ·         AGA IgA and AGA IgG
      However, my doctor only tested for Demidated Glaidin IgG and Tissue Transglutaminase IgA.  Are theses test enough to rule out celiac?  
                                                                     Result                    Normal
      Demidated Glaidin IgG                     <25 units/ml                      <25
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA             <2 u/ml                            <20
      I have been on B12 supplements over the past 3 years.  This does not make since to me as I consume a large amount of B12 in my diet.  Would it be helpful to also test for other vitamin deficiencies?
