In Topic: Positive Home Test, Negative Lab Test - Manufacturer's Response

08 November 2012 - 03:18 PM

What was the one test your doctor ordered? The doctor really should have done a full panel. Can you see if you can get the doctor to order a full panel or perhaps the naturopathic doctor could order it?
If you can you should wait until all celiac related testing is done to start the diet. However if your doctor won't order more testing for you then you really don't need a doctor's permission to go gluten free. Just make sure you are strict with the diet when you do your trial. Being gluten free will not impact testing for any other issues you might have.

The only tests that I had were Tissue Transgluaminase Iga and Immunoglobulin A. I was under the impression that they were going to do the whole panel. Apparently the labs here in Calgary only run the other tests if the TTg Iga come back positive. This really does not make sense to me! I would think that they would especially run the other tests if the first was negative.

Thanks for your advice!

I will see if the Naturopathic doctor says.

Hello again,

I just looked up the Celiac tests on the lab website and this is what it says:

"Initial test of Celiac Disease Screen includes TTG and IgA. Additional reflexive assays will be ordered as required and may include Anti-Endomysial Antibodies (AENDAB) and TTG IgG. "

I guess since my TTG Iga was normal they did not go ahead with the other tests. Does this make sense? I thought if you tested negative for one test you could still test positive for other tests. Am I wrong?

Thanks again.

I typed a long reply but it does not seem to be here?!

So, to make a long story short;

I emailed 2gpharmas to inquire about my results. They have now sent my questions to the manufacturer. I will let you know what they say.

The resident did not have much to say and had never heard of the home test. He only said that the test I had was all that was needed.

I too thought I would have a positive result. Very frustrating indeed!

I am not sure what my next step is. I am considering visiting a Naturopathic dr. and see what she has to stay. The initial visit is an hour so we should be able to cover a lot.

My quest continues...

Udi's Buns with Hebrew Nation Hot Dogs and Premo Sausages in a grill stand in the Great Hall!!! With Red Bridge!!!

A beer and a hot dog at a baseball game!!!

Also, one pizza stand (sec 125 or 127) has gluten-free pizza.

I just wish I was at Yankee Stadium, food or no food! :)

No, giving up lactose will not affect the endoscopy.

Thank you for your quick reply!
