What To Ask For?

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

Can someone tell me what blood tests I need to ask for. My dd has Celiac, and I highly suspect my youngest does also. I have never been tested. But am due for a regular appt. so I thought I would ask my doc. to run a panel, just to see. I want to make sure she runs the correct ones. Especially since I don't have any classic symptoms of Celiac, I may have a hard time getting her to run even the basics. I know it can often times be genetic and since my husband is Native American, its much more likely to have come thru my bloodlines.

Thanks!

Endomysial Antibodies.

Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) This is the newest test and is supposed to be more sensitive.

The standard celiac panel is total IgA, anti-gliadin IgA, anti-TTG IgA, and sometimes anti-endomysial (EMA) IgA. The anti-EMA is expensive and is not always run. If you come up IgA deficient, you can justify the IgG versions to insurance. The new deamidated gliadin peptide IgG is very sensitive and specific if the lab your doctor uses has it (that one is IgG whether or not you're IgA deficient).
