Noob here.

6 year old daughter has had tummy issues since birth (mucous/bloody stool) Off dairy/soy since then.

2011 tests
Immunoglobulin - 142
IBD test -
"Atypical ANCA"
Cerevisiae Ab, IgA 2.1
Cerevisiae Ab, IgG 2.9

Do these low numbers mean anything? Ranges says below 20 is negative..?


more testing in 2012
the prometheus test shows the H.L.A. DQ8 gene
We are now off gluten, but I see that the DQ8 is only in 5% of Celiac patients..?

Any help is appreciated!
Regina

I cant edit my OP but here is a more detailed post, hope this helps

My 6 year old was tested recently.

Neutriphil <1.20 (range <1.20)
Atypical ANCA (Atypical ANCA are found in 50-70% of UC patients)

Cerevisiae Ab, IgA 2.1 (range 0.0-24.9)
Cerevisiae Ab, IgI 2.9 (range 0.0-24.9)

It simply says status - "F". I assume that means negative..?
Do the low numbers mean anything, should they be 0.0?


Also, there is a genetics test that shows a STAT3 mutation detected..?
She also has a gene DQ8 that is in 5% of Celiac patients (we're off dairy/soy/gluten).

the blood tests won't be accurate if she's off gluten. Furthermore, it doesn't look like she had the full celiac panal.

As for the genetic testing goes, It can be an indicator of the disease if it is likely.

Did your daughter ever have any tests from the celiac panel?

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
Total Serum IgA

It looks like they did run the Total Serum IgA (which is also known as Immunoglobulin) but I don't see any of the other tests mentioned?

Ditto what mushroom said; I'm not familiar with those tests either.

To me, it looks like the doc was screening your daughter for ulcerative colitis, and the "ANCA" test result was abnormal (with a note saying 50-70% of patients with ulcerative colitis have abnormal ANCA values). But I'm not entirely sure her result was abnormal, or if they just put that note on the lab results report.

I did a quick Google search, and it looks as though that test is only a first screening step for UC, so the abnormal result can not be used alone to diagnose UC.

Did they say they were going to be testing for celiac as well?
