Need Help Interpreting Celiac Test Results

06 October 2011 - 10:54 AM

Hi everyone,
Just got these blood test results:

Celiac Disease Ab Screen w/Rfx

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IGA -> result says 20 and is flagged as High
Reference interval for this test is:
Negative 1-19
Weak Positive 20-30
Moderate to Strong Postive >30

t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA -> result says <2 U/ml
Reference Interval for this test is:
Negative 0-3
Weak Positive 4-10
Positive >10

Immunoglobulin A, Qn Serum -> result says 305 mg/dL
Refernce Interval for this test is 70-400


So - the Deamidated Gliadin IgA is Weak Positive, the tTG IgA is Negative, and the Immunoglobulin A Qn Serum is within normal range...

Do these results mean that I have a gluten sensitivity, and that I might benefit from excluding gluten from my diet? Or do I need any additional testing to confirm whether I have a gluten sensitivity? I don't have any digestive issues (that I am aware of), but I've had psoriasis and skin dermatitis for 30+ years, and I am trying to determine if a gluten sensitivity may be the cause of my psoriasis (or if it makes the psoriasis worse)...

Thanks for your help!
