I went to the Dr. for my yearly exam. While there she feels my stomach and starts asking about stomach issues, my heritage, ect. She says she wants to test me for Celiac. I have a high ANA and various other autoimmune symtoms (mouth sores, rashes, joint pain) and they haven't pinned down what could be causing all this yet. Well, the test came back and she strongly advises I start a gluten free diet. If symtoms don't improve in a month or so, I am to make an appointment with a GI. Below are my lab results. I am just wondering if there might be something else, but this seems to connect the dots and makes sense. And Celiac has been added to my health record as of now.
Immunoglobulin A 113 (standard range 81-426)
Gliadin IGA 19 (>10 positive)
Gliadin IGG 33 (>10 positive)
Tissue Transglutaminase IGA 83 (>10 positive)
Tissue Transglutaminase IGG 1 (>10 positive)
Thank you all in advance. If it is Celiac, I can tell this place will be a great resourse.
