Enterolab Test Positive,

I have just a general question about Enterolab testing results as follows:

Fecal antigliadin 102 units (normal <10 units).

I'm wondering how severe of a reaction I may be having? I have lupus, Sjordens, and Raynauds syndromes as well as Hashimotos thyroiditis. Lots of autoimmune problems, I'm learning that Celiac is also an autoimmune disease as well.

My family history is complicated by two sisters with MS, my mother has Vitiligo (skin autoimmune problem) and Hashimotos.

My question is how severe is a result of 102 units from Enterolab? Is this an indicator of end stage celiac disease? Hope my question doesn't sound to silly, I really am just concerned. I'm sure if it's positive then gluten free diet is the only remedy. I realise even with low positive results an intolerance is still an intolerance.

Yours truly!

I'm sure my question regarding test results would probably be better to instead email Dr. Fine at Enerolab. I'll do that and maybe post if there's informative news about levels that are high.

Thanks,

Tia

End stage of celiac? Hmm. If normal is less than 10, and your reading is 102, then I think you need to be gluten free.

My choice of wording with "end stage" celiac wasn't quite what I meant. Progressive celiac disease is probably a better choice of wording, meaning lots of problems stemming from eating gluten. I have been gluten free since I recieved results from enterolab.

I just never thought of it as end stage. I do suppose that it is, when you reach the constant diarhea and weight los and malabsorbtion, since the damage is severe!

I had a 104 and no damage/symptoms or other illnesses so unfortunately not everybody falls into the classic form. I think you are best in emailing Dr. Fine for clarification.
