What Do You Think Of These Results?
0

3 posts in this topic

I was hoping for some advice on these results. I just got the exact #'s today:

IGA: 23

IGG: 40

IGA Ttg: Negative (no value was given)

Anti-reticulan IGG antibody: 1/20 (titre) which is borderline.

Biopsy is normal, colonoscopy normal.

And this elevated indirect bilirubin keeps showing up. About 4 years ago showed up at 1.2, then 1.5, now the total bilirubin (I don't know what the direct/indirect is this time) is up to @ 2.0.

Does a IGG-predominant positive point to intolerance? Anyone know or have any ideas?

Thank you!

Gretchen

My tests fell in the normal range, but I had considerably reduced my wheat due to a doctor telling me it would help me detox. Luckily my doctor warned me the blood test might show negative but I might still have the gluten/celiac problem.

I also have always had a high bilirubin. It would be interesting to know if other celiacs have this problem. It is also called Gilbert's syndrome, and your liver has a harder time with cleaning out certain food/medications. You can find a lot on the internet on this subject about what to do and what not to do.

Thank you, Nin

I have heard of Gilbert's and from what I've read it's not harmful.. which is good. The doctor is going to check my small intestines through an x-ray, and hopefully find an answer to why I'm symptomatic. I've read that if you have increased intestinal permeability, that indirect bilirubin can be elevated and IGG's and other things can circulate in yor blood. It's like a big puzzle... lots of pieces and no recognizable picture yet. I'm not on a gluten-free diet, so my test results were actual. I believe the doctor will try to rule out Crohn's next... but, I don't run a fever.. do all who have Crohn's run a fever?
