That would likely depend one what lab is doing the work. Do you know? Your doc's office should be able to tell you that if they can't tell you the components of each test. Be watchful of them, some of them do what is called a "cascade", meaning they test one pertinent component...if it is negative, they don't bother doing the tests that follow.

You can go to the websites (like Quest or Labcorp) and see how they define their tests. Every lab has their own way of doing things.

thank you. is there an option to reply without quoting posts? I clicked on a plus at the top hope that didn't screw anything up. I will ask the lab tech about what is being tested when we go next week. He did have a celiac panel done( didn't get a copy of results yet) but he has a low total serum IgA...took ds to a GI and he's the one that ordered the celiac plus panel plus a food allergy panel.

:) You can use the "add reply" button at the very bottom (next to the "preview post" button) or at the very top of the page.

If you use the quoted reply button, you can just go back and delete everything in between the quote commands. You'll see "quote" and "/quote" in square brackets at the beginning and end of the quoted portion which is at the very top of your reply window. :)

And the plus button is if you found a post particularly helpful, while the minus button is reserved for a snarky comment, wrong information or just generally not at all helpful (or even interesting :rolleyes: ) You do not have to use either of these - they are strictly optional when you feel strongly about something :)
