Does Iga Test For Anything Else?
0

2 posts in this topic

I was just diagosed with celiac disease - is it common to have a normal biopsy and an elevated Iga blood test and be diagnosed with celiac? My doc says that means I have a mild case. Can this particular blood test be indicative of anything else? Does a mild case mean you don't have to be 100% gluten-free? Can a mild case get worse? And finally, if it is "mild" should I respond faster than someone who isn't mild?

Bah!! "Mild". Might as well have the obstetrician tell someone she's "mildly pregnant". If you've got a positive, you do have to go completely 100% gluten-free, permanently. You may find that you've got less damage (less leakiness for the antibodies to get into your bloodstream) and will heal faster, but it might also not work that way for you either. Either way, it's 100% gluten-free from here on out.
