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?

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
