8 posts in this topic

:huh: My daughter has been gluten-free for 2 months. Still having stomach pain. Gastro doc ran Celiac panel again.

{tTG} Ab, IgG <20 neg

{tTG Ab, IgA <20 neg

GLIADIN Ab IgA 35 HIGH (>30 MOD TO STRONG POSITIVE)

iGa, serum 247 high (RANGE 33-235)

our doc is away for the week. Another doc said it can take a while for numbers to come down. DOES ANYONE AGREE? cAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THESE NUMBERS?

Any input would be helpful.

those numbers have come down quite a lot in two months. it's looking good to me. at this rate, all her numbers will be well within normal range in another two months! is she feeling mostly better?

congrats! you're doing great!!

It can often take 6-12 months for the levels to go to zero...and it can be even longer if you've been ill for a long time (like an adult). The key is that the trend is showing a dramatic drop in the IgA antigliadin levels...that's the one to watch, as it can respond quickly with an increase when gluten is in the diet. Have your doc check your daughter's levels again in about 6 months and compare to these.

One last question. what is IgA serum? That one is still really high. Does that mean she is still getting gluten somewhere? This is so confusing.

I'm guessing that's total IgA, but it's not that high out of range. (You note that the range goes up to 235, and she's only 12 points (or around 5%) above that. Given the improvement you've seen, I wouldn't worry too much.) When in doubt (or worry :-) ) do call the doctor! :-)

mine is still positive after 10 months gluten-free!!! I haven't eaten gluten! I don't know the numbers, though. I don't know what to do :(

Mine are still strongly positive after a year gluten-free, and I'm probably the most strict person I know when it comes to this diet! It angers me to be working this hard and be this strict, and still have to hear bad news from the latest test results. I don't know what else I can do, either. It's enough to make me wanna say the heck with the diet, but I know I can't do that.
