Anitgliadin Antibody Panel:
Gliadin AB IGA - negative
Gliacin AB IGG - negative
Wheat GF4 IGG - positive (normal is below 2.0, I registered an 8.0)
Wheat F4 IG - negative for wheat allergy
Any idea what this means? The allergist says that I don't show signs of a gluten intolerance, but that the positive Wheat GF4 IGG shows that I have a 'local gut intolerance.' Anyone else have similar results and been found to be either celiac or non-celiac?
I also tested positive for ANA (1:640 speckled). I was checked out for Lupus, but again I tested negative for all autoimmune diseases in a subsequent blood test. Is a positive ANA typical of Celiac? I know Celiac is autoimmune, but haven't seen a link to the ANA test.
I am going to a GI for full testing, but wondered if anyone had heard of tests like this, or had similar results.
Many Thanks, Jala.
