In Topic: Newbie With Lab Results And Questions

08 January 2013 - 01:42 PM

Thanks to all for your invaluable and supportive replies! I have been eating gluten-free per doctor's order since July, when I started this thread with the results of my Celiac panel. I haven't noticed much of a difference in my overall health, much to my disappointment; and, when I do slip and eat gluten, I don't report any adverse reactions besides maybe some fatigue.

I received my follow-up Celiac panel lab results today, which show similar readings to the ones from May:
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Antibody, IgA: 35.0 (Reference Range: < 6.1)
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Antibody, IgG: 0.6 (< 4.9)
Anti-human Tissue Transglutaminase IgA: 0.3 (< 10.3)
Anti-Endomysial IgA IFA: Negative
Total Serum IgA: 208 mg/dL (Range: 44-441)

I'm still curious to know what all this means, and how to proceed. The doctor who performed this follow-up Celiac panel is not the same one who performed the initial one back in May. And, whereas my first doctor (in May) did not diagnose Celiac Disease following my results, my new doctor who performed and interpreted these new results immediately diagnosed me with Celiac Disease. Who to believe?

Thank you!
