Hi there any help is appreciated

My son is nearly 3 and had his blood screen done and two of the results I reminder from the results the doctor showed me were:

IgA <1. Expected range 1-7

IgG 2. Expected range 1-7

I am confused my doc told me that all is ok. but i read low immunoglobulin could indicate low antibodies and can make the rest of the test result unreliable.. So confused. Please help.

Sorry I hijack the post but I have a similar question and completely ignorant to celiac disease

My son is nearly 3 and had his blood screen done and two of the results I reminder from the results the doctor showed me were:

IgA <1. Expected range 1-7

IgG 2. Expected range 1-7

I am confused my doc told me that all is ok. but i read low immunoglobulin could indicate low antibodies and can make the rest of the test result unreliable.. So confused. Please help.

 

Jules are those the immunoglobulin total levels?

 

Feel free to start a new post in this section or in the children's section.

Include the test results.

 

DGP-IgG is the best Celiac test for young children.

There is not sufficient information to identify the tests that you are referring to. IgA and IgG are general types and each can refer to multiple tests. But if that is Total Serum IgA that was low, then any other IgA test run at the same time may be falsely negative.

 

This is now a separate topic.
