Does anyone know about Ortega and Old El Paso? I can't seem to find info on these two. Thanks for the info given so far. I have tried McCormick but we didn't like it as well.

IgA - there are four different types of IgA antibodies that are tested when checking for celiac disease

IgA endomysial antibody (IgA EMA)
IgA tissue transglutaminase antibody (IgA tTG)
IgA antigliadin antibody (IgA AGA)
IgG antigliadin antibody (IgG AGA)

Elevated levels of any of these means celiac disease is a possiblity. Which ones did she test positive for? How high were her levels. Certain ones are more accurate than others. For example - a positive endomysial marker is 98%-100% accurate for celiac disease without a biopsy.

I would call and talk to the lab to get the specifics of the test and then ask for someone else to interpret the results. If your child has elevated IgA levels it should be looked into.

Did you have allergy testing done as well? If not I would do so.

If you can't get better results get a second opinion. My doctor has very limited knowledge of celiac disease. I was even told that is was up to me whether or not to follow a gluten free diet for them!

My computer was broke and I finally got a new one and just saw this post. I will try to check back to see if you have more questions.
