Possiable Celiac Disease Diagnosis

03 March 2004 - 10:28 AM

Hi, I am new to this site but I have already found it useful. I just got back my blood work tests from my doctor and she has refered me to a GI. I am a little confuse though as to what the results mean. Here is what it says:

Gliadin AB IGA
<20 units negative
20-30 units weak positive
>30 units Moderate to Strong Positive

Gliadin AB IGG
<20 units negative
20-30 units weak positive
>30 units Moderate to Strong Positive

Could someone help me understand what that means? Also, I have stopped eating gluten containing foods for two days now since the results came back and I am wondering if my GI does a biopsy will it come up negative because I haven't been eating anything containing gluten eventhough I may actually have celiac disease?

Another question is that I am not under weight, in fact I am a bit over weight so can I really have celiac disease? I have a lot of the symptoms but weight loss is not one of them. Could I really have IBS not celiac disease?

If anyone could offer me any advise as to what to do or how to make sure I get all the proper tests done to find out what I really have I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much!!! :)
