After a year and a half or so, i decided to get the blood tests reran again.

So far the total IGA was ran and came out to 211 (thats up 1 from my first test). So its within normal range.

Does the rest of the panel take a while to get back? If i remember right, it took about a week. My doctor said she'd run the full panel so now i wait.

Mind you its only been about 2 hours since i had the blood drawn. :)

Well no, and I have as much patience as a 2 year old who just ate an entire night's trick-or-treat candy, but that isn't the point!

I'm not sure how long it takes, but when the did my husband's tests they didn't call for THREE WHOLE DAYS!!!

You have Christmas to figure in, too. That might add an extra day. Ours were quick but where a lot of people's blood is sent is here in town. Also, previously, they only ran Celiac panels on Tue & Thur. If you got your blood taken today ( Thur) it wouldn't be read until Tue. However, Tue is a holiday so it might not be read until Thur. Or you could get it back tomorrow! But I would think a week, with the holiday.

So then, would it be strange to get one part of it back?

Yes, that is strange to get one part back. You should return it immediately. They may have accidentally given you someone else's part! :(

Not necessarily. My blood tests frequently come in bits and pieces and I think total IgA is pretty easy to run. They can just add your blood to one of the wells on an existing plate.

I doubt that. My hospital has an online distribution system for test results and whatnot.
