In Topic: Had Bloodwork, Now I Am Confused

27 April 2004 - 06:00 AM

I called the Dr. and found out that he only tested for anti-gliadan IgG and IgA. I have read where those aren't even the best indicators for celiac disease. I told him that going on a gluten-free diet is pointless. Since I haven't had symptoms in a while, what would he expect to happen? If the symptoms aren't there, how could it get better with a gluten-free diet? It is not like he is asking me to lay off red meat for a while (which would be fairly easy). I think going gluten-free is a big step. But of course going gluten-free doesn't cost the insurance money. I think at a minimum more detailed blood tests should be performed and a referral to a GI Dr.

Just my IgG is high. It is 32. Everything else is fine. Also, I haven't even had any symptoms for the last month. My Dr. said it was inconclusive and wanted me to go gluten-free and see if my symptoms improve, but I really have not had much of a problem (if any) for the past month and I am taking in as much or more gluten than ever. I changed my oatmeal breakfast to Kashi organic waffles (that have lots of fiber, soy protein, and tons of wheat). He wants to hold off on the endoscopy for now. I am thinking about trying the enterolab test.
