Help With Test Results

2 posts in this topic

I was hoping that posting this in this forum topic would be more helpful as I did not receive a response under the pre-diagnosis topic.

Below are my results from my celiac blood test. The report says that the results do not support a diagnosis of celiac disease. I am wondering if I could be borderline, or possibly have a sensitivity to gluten or something similar. I had genetics testing through 23 and Me and I do have the gene that is associated with celiac. I also have a gene that is associated with a significant risk of being IgA deficient, which I have heard can cause false negatives. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

While you tests do appear to be negative false negatives are not uncommon. If you are finished testing you should do a strict trial of the diet to see if it helps.
