New Here With Test Resultw...

Hello!

I was recently had a gluten Antibody Assay done through Immuno Laboratories and the results are as follows:

IgG 11

IgA 19

Negative <20.

I am wondering if I should pursue further testing or continue to find a different solution to all of my problems. I show classic symptoms of Celiac and have had a few people tell me that I must have it.

Thanks for your help and for the wonderful board!!!

I don't think that is sufficient testing for Celiac. Also...were you eating gluten regularly before the tests?

If you'd like more definitive answers then pursue testing. There are better...more specific tests for Celiac than just the IgA and IgG. You could also just start the diet and see what it does for you. If there is no difference then you can continue looking into other things. There is no harm in trying the diet.

Without the full celiac panel, it's really hard to conclude anything from that. Assume the IgA and IgG you put down were anti-gliandin IgA and IgG, you also need a total IgA, a tTg, and EMA. And, regardless of those results, given the symptoms and the family history, I would also suggest trying the diet - strictly - for three months as a further diagnostic test.

Thank-you for your replies. I think I will pursue further testing as I strongly suspect that this is my problem and not candida as my doctor has suggested. I have been on the candida diet for approximately 3 months with no improvement in my abdominal discomfort or loose bowels. My skin has cleared up though.

Definitely go for more testing. That is not enough to rule it out. The tests Tiffaany mentioned need to be done.You also need to be on gluten 3 months prior to testing eating equal to about 2-3 pieces of bread a day.

If you do not want to pursue testing then just try the diet.

I would definatley request the tissue transglutamase test (tTg) and make sure that you are eating a lot of gluten before the test.

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
