Help With Analysis Results
0

6 posts in this topic

In my country celiac disease is not so known and doctors dont know to much about that disease.

This is my analysis results:

negative anti gliadin IgA and very high positive IgG

positive Tissue Transglutaminase IgG

Can anyone tell me is that good or bad ?

On analysis before this everything where positive, so any progress since then?

Thanks.

Without knowing the actual numbers on your tests it is hard to tell if you are making any progress. Also, how long ago was your first round of testing. If your numbers are not dropping at all you are not making any progress, although interesting that the IgA was now negative. You could be a low IgA producer - you don't mention if total IgA was run.

Here are my latest results:

date of analysis: Jul 5

Anti gliadin IgA :1.21 U/ml

Anti Gliadin IgG : 22.76 U/ml

Tissue Transglutaminase IgG: 3.56 U/ml

My first results:

date of analysis:March 26

Anti gliadin IgA :7.78 U/ml

Anti Gliadin IgG : 39.59 U/ml

Tissue Transglutaminase IgG: 3.39 U/ml

After these first results, gastroscopy results confirmed that I have celiac disease. I started with gluten-free diet from 27 April. Do these results show progress according to my diet?

I'm not an expert, but they look like they are coming down. It can take longer than 2 months for them to go back to normal.

It is normal to do this kind of check after six months and a year. People heal at different rates and a three-month check doesn't really mean a lot. Many of us have barely begun to heal at that point.

Hi, at 50 yrs old I just got diagnosed after 45 yrs of symptoms. So I was happy to at least get the diagnosis. I was tested in Oct 2012 while still eating some gluten.

My IgA was 474

I have been gluten free for 3 months. Have been also drinking an  intestinal healing powder for celiacs and also taking lots of Bio K liquid probiotics as I also have a candida issue on top of the celiacs.

Other than the celiacs and candida, I am a health nut except for my sweet tooth. I juice,eat sardines,taking vitamin,E,A,D and zinc.The rashes (chicken pox like)  that have ravaged  my scalp and buttocks for 35 years are both almost gone after going gluten free the last three months so imagine my horror to see this result on Mondays IgA test on my celiacs panel.

My IgA  is now 519 !!!!! should I be dead ? I see everyone else with numbers below 130. and I'm getting scared. I do believe my current Dr is a moron though. she knows very little about eliacs and look s at me like she thinks I am lying about all the symptoms I have had. I want a new Dr in the Denver area. I saw on this site there was a Celiacs Dr nearby so Halleluyah !!! Thanks for posting that !

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
