This is my first blood test in 3 years. I had no idea I needed to get any blood testing done as the doctors never told me anything! My home is a dual kitchen and I keep all my food and dishes separate, I even hand wash my stuff. But I am definitely going to be stricter and recheck everything I have in my pantry!


Here is the paper they gave me with my results: tTG antibody, IgA   77.55 out of range    20.00 reference range

tTG IgA Reference Range

<20.00    Negative

20.00-30.00 Weak Positive

>30.00     Positive


tTG Antibody IgA Result   POSITIVE


The following results were obtained with the INOVA QUANTALite h-tTG IgA ELISA. h-tTG Iga values obtained with different manufacturers' assay methods may not be used interchangeably. The magnitude of the reported IgA levels cannot be correlated to an endpoint titer.



So this is what I got along with me being confused hahahahaha.  I really wish he would have sent me to a dietician when he first told me I had celiac.  I am going to keep a food symptom journal I think that will really help me. I know that even if I wipe my mouth after touching gluten I throw up, this is why I am confused.


I thank you all for your advice as it has really helped me out a lot and I don't feel so alone.  I will keep reading and researching so I can get this down right, I want to be healthy! He gave me 3 months to turn this around and I know I can thanks to all of you!!!!

Same here.  And I must admit, I drink a glass of wine every night with my dinner.  I love my red wine.  My antibody tests were pegged when I was diagnosed and my last one came in at a 1...which is as low as humanly possible to achieve. If there were any amount of gluten in wine, this would not be possible.


I answered your other post, Kiki, regarding your high levels.  It may not be your diet so make sure the doctor did the correct testing and go from there!

Thank you all for your help and I do a lot of research on this site but it is helpful when you really get to talk to people who are going through what you are so thanks!

And Gemini I will check out the testing part also!

How high were they before?  Mine were off the top of the level.  It took more than 6 months to get them all the way down.  That is normal.

Doctor didn't say what they were 3 years ago but I thought I was being so careful as I throw up for hours if I get glutened so I am just in shock right now.
