As I mentioned in a thread a few weeks ago, I've recently started a gluten challenge after 3 years of very strict gluten free eating.
I've got a biopsy in 2 weeks time (after which I will have been eating gluten for 5 weeks and 2 days in total - I've been eating around 6 slices of bread per day or equivalent).
2 weeks into the gluten challenge I had blood tests done.
Deamidated Gliadin IgA * 99 U/mL ( <15 )
Deamidated Gliadin IgG <1 U/mL ( <15 )
Tissue Transglutaminase IgA <1 U/mL ( <15 )
Tissue Transglutaminase IgG <1 U/mL ( <15 )
My results from 2010 are as follows (following many years of low gluten, but not gluten free eating):
Gliadin IgA Abs * 47 U/mL ( 0 - 20 )
tTG IgA/IgG * 52 U/mL ( 0 - 20 )
When I had a biopsy in 2010, there wasn't any sign of Villous atrophy.
I was wondering after my latest blood test if I might be going for a biopsy too soon?
I understand that the 99 U/mL result for Gliadin IgA suggests that there's something going on, but am I understanding correctly that the other results (the IgG and the tissue results) suggest that there's no sign of damage being done?
Again, whatever the result I will be going back to strict gluten free eating. I'm definitely intolerant to the stuff.
