Newbie Confused About Her Blood Results! Quantitative Iga High?
Posted 08 June 2012 - 12:51 PM
I'm unsure but I believe that this test measures whether or not I have a deficiency in the Iga and if so it might affect the other tests by providing me with a false negative(s). So, my question is does a High result have any correlation to celiac disease? I'm hoping to avoid this disease but at 45 I'm finding a greater and greater correlation to what food I ingest and how crappy I feel. Thanks for listening and wishing you all good health (and a great weekend!!) Maddie

What did your doctor say? Was it a GI doc or your primary care doc?

"Levels of IgA get higher in some autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and in liver diseases, such as cirrhosis and long-term (chronic) hepatitis.
High levels of IgA may mean monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS) or multiple myeloma is present."
In summary, it means there is some type of inflammation going on, but I would NOT conclude it means anything until I see the doctor who ordered the test for you.
This test result alone is non-conclusive for celiac, IMHO. but it does not mean you do not have it, either.
Sorry--that was probably not very helpful at all
I am seronegative for celiac disease and IgA deficient myself, so testing for me was never accurate at all. It's frustrating, I know.
Hopefully, someone with more knowledge will chime in.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; Finally Diagnosed with Celiac 11/01/10. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.
