This is the result that came back from Group Health:

Thanks!

Not much on it's own. It looks to be a Total Serum IgA result within normal range - granted the lower end of "normal".

Did you have any other blood tests run? Make sure you request written/electronic results of ALL tests.

I had another blood test run, but haven't gotten the results back yet. All other procedures/tests came back completely normal, yet I get sick every day. See my earlier posts for my story. Thanks. :)

Ah...now I remember...you had a recent double-ender...have you received the pathology from the endoscopic biopsies?

Have you removed all gluten? Since you have completed all testing, it is time to remove it all and give living gluten-free a strict three month trial (six months is better) as this is often the best test for Celiac Disease and the only test for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. NCGI can have many of the same symptoms of Celiac Disease.
