In Topic: Positive Iga After 16 Months Gf

14 June 2004 - 05:39 AM

Hi,

I'm new here and posted this question in another, probably wrong, location; so I'm trying again. My original IgA was 34, a strong positive according to the lab my doctor uses. My IgG was negative. I just got the results of a follow up blood test 16 months later and can't believe I tested positve still! This time it was an IgA of 24, a weak positive according to this particular lab. Anything under 20 is considered negative. Again, my IgG was negative. I have never had a biopsy, my doctor believing the blood test, along with family history, to be enough for a positive diagnosis. I have been so careful all of this time, doing massive research on everything I eat. I cook all my own food and am meticulous about avoiding cross contamination. Now I'm wondering if such a weak positive is something to be worried about. Is damage still being done? Anyone else have this happen? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
