i Everyone. I am a brand new member , just joined today May  9,2013. Ok I have a million questions as I JUST got diagnosed after 50 years of very serious symptoms.  My current Dr didn't even tell me I had Celiacs when a lab test I took diagnosed it over 5 years ago...needless to say I am PISSED at Dr's right now. I had a bunch of labs done Oct 2012 (CBC,Celiacs Blood panel) and after reading some comments on here about what Numbers are normal, Im freaking out right now. OK if ANYONE on here knows something about these numbers PLEASE post a response.

Ok I have been gluten/wheat free 3 months now. Also taken Bio K probiotics and and intestinal healing powder. Here are my results

 

Oct 2012                                                                  May 2013 (after being gluten free 3 months)

 

IgA        474                                                             IgA       512

                                                                                TgA      -2

glucose 83                                                                glucose 85

cholesterol 272                                                        cholesterol 293

HDL             56                                                         HDL  54

LDL            200                                                         LDL-203

Triglycerides 140                                                      Triglycerides 180

 

Ok I exercise ALOT, I am pretty much a health nut in every way. I dont know anyone that works out as hard as I do. I know that is only a tiny piece of the puzzle. I have cut so much out of my diet so seeing these results was very upsetting to see. Is it normal for the IgA counts to ever be this high? If its supposed to be 20 Im in deep doo doo. Somebody give me some advice.

There is a full panel of tests for celiac. Looks like you only got the IGA TTG (i'm assuming thats what the Tga is) and a total IGA. However, a negative number for it? Not sure about that.
