Do I Need More Tests?
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have not had the full Celiac panel done but my GP ran a t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA test which came back negative (Result was 7 which falls between the 0-19 limits).

I've read that this "endomysial antibody is superior to other current antibody tests and should be used in preference for the diagnosis of celiac disease."

I have no symptoms. My doctor wanted me tested because I'm Irish/Norwegian/German and my DHEA was low. She's been adament about getting me off grains even before the test. (I was NOT gluten-free when I took the test, though. I knew that would screw it up.) I have no idea if I need to see a GI doc and do more tests. I do seem to be tired a lot and I break out in hives and rashes occasionally.

Any opinions, advice and/or insight anyone has would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Aeval

Two suggestions from me:

1. Get the full celiac panel (5 blood tests, I believe).

2. Try the gluten-free diet (strictly) for two months or so, and see if it makes any difference.
