Hi! After a year and analog of being gluten free and almost a year with no cross contamination, I finally got health insurance again (yea!) and was able to get my antibodies tested again to see how I'm doing. I just got my results but I am completely clueless as to what good numbers and bad numbers would be! Can anybody help?

I'm sorry that was supposed to say a year and a half. I am posting from an iPhone.

Did you have original numbers? They should come way down.

Mine were never alarmingly high - came down steadily over the first year and are hanging between 3 and 6.

If you post results -- many of us can help analyze.

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

My results are in decimals which is what confused me. It says IgG should be <0.9 and mine is 0.15 and the IgA should be <0.9 and mine is 0.26

The range that it considers "normal" I believe is the range that Kaiser sets. I don't know if that's standard though and I also don't know why they are in decimals instead of whole numbers?

Ok..

that is tTG-IgA and tTG-IgG in normal range - that is good. Hard to give you accurate info if you don't have results prior to gluten removal.

I don't have any reaults from when I was at my sickest. Only from about 6 years ago long before I finally actually got a diagnosis. (Long story). But it seems that my levels are really low. Does anybody ever get all the way to zero? Does the fact that I have trace amounts of antibodies mean I am getting glutened somehow or is this good?

Ok...if you post your results from six years ago with ranges if possible AND the new results in the same post it will be easier to compare.

If I have to answer off what you have provided I'd say you are heading in the right direction. I would also suggest you have your doc order the DGP tests -- Deamidated Gliadin Peptide - both IgA and IgG as these are most specific for possible accidental ingestion.
