Why Has My Gliadin Igg Raised After 7 Months Gluten-Free?
0

7 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with Celiac after blood and biopsy in May 2012. I keep mulling over my December results after being obsessively gluten free. My whole family and household is gluten free, I cook from scratch and rarely ever eat out unless I have spoken to manager and chef. I'm very aware of hidden gluten and believe I am doing a great job but my Gliadin IgG has raised...

TT IgA went from 129.6 to 4.5

Gliadin IgA went from 113.8 to 22.1

Gliadin IgG went from 57.7 to 131.9

My doctor didn't say much about it but I don't think she is that familiar with these tests either.

Can anyone help me figutre out what this means?

Thank you!

That is interesting. Since both IgA tests went down substantially -- it is puzzling.

Did they run a tTG IgG? Any change there?

Since it is a surpising number - I think I'd have it re-run to make sure it was an accurate result.

Looks like you are doing well on removing gluten, otherwise the other numbers would not have fallen so.

How about symptom improvement?

Are you feeling better?

Thanks for asking! I don't see a tTG IgG. I feel better than I did before diagnosis but I definitely don't feel great. I have had all my food sensitivities and allergies ran (IgG and IgE). I am seeing a specialist, Dr. Wangen next month.

Glad you'll be seeing a specialist.

I'm still curious.....

What symptoms have improved?

What symptoms have remained or changed?

Are you using gluten free flours? They can be problematic for some. Do you use one that is tested to below 5 ppm? Have you been keeping a food/symptom journal? I do that and try to make only one change per week so that I can track the source of any problems that I am having. If I am having current problems I will eliminate foods in my diet one by one to check them.

I have been on the diet since November of last year. My gliadin IGG has gone up a little since my gluten-free diet. I'm not real worried because 1.) I have caught a couple weak spots where I was being glutened some unintentionally and 2.) it seems like I have read about others who have had the numbers continue to go up or stay the same for the first year before they start to drop. I'm assuming its one of these categories that I fall into. You're not alone!

Did you have a GI "bug" shortly before this was drawn?

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
