Hi!

 

I just had a ton of blood work done and my apt isn't until Wednesday to review w/ the Doctor.  Here are my results that I don't understand, the rest was "normal":

 

HLA-DQ2           Neg

HLA-DQ8           Neg

HLA-DQA1     01 and 05

HLA-DQB1     0301 and 0602

 

TSH 1.72

t4 Free 1.3

T4 Total 6.8

Thyroid Antibodies less than 10

T3 Uptake High at 36

IGA  5

Immunoglobulin A  130

Tissue Trans Ab IGA TTG Antibody IGA  Less than 1

 

Vitamin D  20 (Low)

Sodium 133 (Low)

Casein/cow milk High at 7.7

Absolute Neutrophils  9074 High

 

I also tested negative for all nuts and corn.  How accurate are the blood tests?

 

Thanks!!

Do you have the normal reference ranges that your lab uses? It's difficult to interpret results without it as lab ranges can vary quite a bit.

 

Without that though, I would say your one celiac test (tTG IgA) looks negative. It should be pretty accurate as long as you have normal IgA levels. I don't know much about genetic testing but it looks like you don't have the genes typically associated with celiac disease (but one can have celiac disease without those genes - just not as often).
