If you care to discuss it further, do you have a history? Why did you do this test instead of an antibody tests? Were you tested for DQ2 and Dq8? You may not have been checked for celiac at all.
Did you have a total IgA test alone? The total IgA would show that you don't have low antibodies only, I believe. This would only mean that your test would not false negative for that reason.
Did you try a gluten free diet? Did you notice changes after going gluten free?
You do have symptoms that could be celiac. They could be something else. Yet, please be sure that you have been checked carefully for celiac as it is serious and often is misdiagnosed. Better now than later.
Thanks for responding. I did have the ttg iga test done and it was negative (ttg iga is the only celiac blood test available here - they don't ever run a full celiac panel and only run the ema test if ttg iga is positive). Since I still had symptoms which improved on a gluten free diet, I wanted to have the gene test done. My kids have symptoms as well and I wanted tools to advocate for them - I knew I could rule out celiac if my genetic test came back negative.
The company that produces this gene test is the same company that makes the biocard/celiacsure at-home attg blood test. The gene test is specifically for celiac, so I'm sure the confusion lies in my ineptitude in reading the results!
From the research I have been doing, I think I have half of a DQ2 gene and half of a DQ8 (DQ2 is apparently DQA1*05/DQB1*02 - I have the DQA1*05 allele - and DQ8 is DQA1*03/DQB1*0302 - I have the DQB1*03 allele). I don't know if I am reading this correctly, but when I get the paper copy of my results I will call them and speak to them directly. I just think their results are a little more difficult to read than others.
I actually just did the biocard attg blood test on my little guy last night and the results were a very faint positive. I plan on taking him in to the doctor to see if he'll send him for the lab tests.
Thanks so much for your thoughts and advice. All the best
