Need Help With Blood Test Results

18 May 2008 - 07:17 AM

* I originally posted this in the children's section, but I wanted to move it to the testing folder.

Hi Everyone,
I have been meaning to post this question for awhile now. I have Celiac myself and my son was first tested when he was 18 months old (I didn't realize how unreliable the tests can be for children and probably many adults as well!). I was told that his results were negative. I then tested him through Enterolab and he tested positive. I went ahead and took him off of gluten and he has been doing well since (He is now 3). He never had any major symptoms, but I was watching him very closely since I have Celiac myself. He started to have some tummy trouble, eczema, bloated belly etc. Those symptoms improved when he stopped eating gluten. Anyhow, I was going through his medical records the other day and came across his Celiac blood tests. I wanted to post them because his one Gliadin test was above the range by 1 point. I don't know if this is significant at all. Would you consider these blood results positive at all, or are they completely negative?
Thanks for your help!

IGA, Serum...........26mg/dL (24-121)

GLIADIN AB IGG................12 U/ml (<11) *This is the one I had a question about

GLIADIN AB IGA................<3 (<11)

Also, his platelet count was increased at 436 (140-400) *Not sure if that means anything, the doctor never mentioned it.


His tTG IGG AB was <3 (<7), but was run well after he had already been on the gluten free diet (the lab lost his blood the first time and did not have enough to run the whole panel--doctor said being off of gluten wouldn't matter, but I have read different opinions about that)

Thanks again!

Lay's Kettle Cooked Meyer Lemon & Rosemary Flavored Potato Chips

12 December 2007 - 12:25 PM

I know a lot of the LAY'S chips are gluten free, but I am not sure about the LAY'S Kettle Cooked Meyer Lemon & Rosemary Flavored Potato Chips? I just bought them today and had a few, but when I checked Lay's website, they were not listed in the gluten-free section. Does anyone know if these are in fact gluten free? Thanks!
