Lab Test Results- I Have But Doctor Hasn't Tole Me Yet What They Mean

9 posts in this topic

Hello-

After having lots of diaherrea in my 20's at around 30 years old I was tested with blood tests and told I had a mild to moderate wheat allergy. I did continue eating wheat but cut back. I also developed Hashimotos, chronic aching in my muscles and some joints, acid reflux, IBS and general not feeling well . An osteopath doctor told me to go grain free and my Hashimotos would get better. I went gluten free for two months, In Jan-March. Then ate it again for two weeks. My bad cystic acne flared up and I felt worse. I got a lab test for celiac done and am waiting for osteopath to read it's results. I think it is negative, but not sure.

Immunoglobulin A Qn was 527 (High 70-400)

Deamidated Gliadin IgA is 9 (negative)

tTG IGA is <2 (negative)

Also Chron's, IBS, Hashimotos and Lupus runs on the maternal side of my family. None have been tested for Celiac though.

Yes, it's negative. :) You are probably gluten intolerant rather than celiac. With one autoimmune disease you're at risk for more so it's good to be off gluten.

Also, you were gluten free for two months before testing and only back on gluten for two weeks. That could have had an effect on your results.

Okay. What does the high immoglobulin mean? I have been unable to figure that out, even searching the internet. Can someone tell me about that level?

It can come up with autoimmune diseases, including celiac. I wonder if it has anything to do with your Hashimoto's?

Did you feel better on the two months you were gluten free? After being gluten free for two months you needed longer back on gluten for testing. If you want retesting go back to gluten for at least another two months and test again. But if you feel better gluten free go back to it after the testing is over. Your body knows the answer.

Did you have a scratch test for the wheat allergy? If not, I would suggest a scratch test, if you react via scratch test...you should NOT be eating wheat, you can't just cut back. But I would get retested.

I had terrible cystic acne. Since going gluten free its gone....I still have terrible acne, but I no longer have had the cystic acne. I really believe that my family is celiac, but I and my mom tested negative.

I have had a blood test for wheat and did show mild allergy. I had scratch test years and years ago, but I can't remember now if wheat was one. I know weeds, etc were so can't recall wheat or not.

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
