Ttg Igg, Is It Accurate? Next Step?

17 November 2012 - 09:01 AM


just got a blood sample taken & waiting for the results.

I understand from here that the test is innacurate, which would surely mean its a pointless test? but can you get false positive as well as false negative for ttg?

also, read a article written by a so called expert that if the ttg is low, but igg is high, then this means that your g.i. but i thought you couldnt test for intolerence?

what would be my next step of testing when results come back? Im in uk so nhs doctors, who seem to not be very willing to help me probably because of budget cuts. do i need to insist on more tests regardless of what they say?

Thanks alot

Complete Symptoms List?

01 November 2012 - 09:25 AM

Hi again,

Hoping someone could link me to complete list of celiac/g.i symptoms on this site or another if there is one.
Not being lazy but can only find bits and pieces scattered around.


Newbie Questions

19 October 2012 - 11:53 AM


Ive had a look around but couldnt find anything so i was hoping someone could answer these questions.

Celiac desease & gluten intolerance are the same thing yes?
Can c.d or g.i sunddenly develope or are you born with it?
Can you be intolerant but not have any gut problems or symptoms?

Ive started thinking about g.i because its been mentioned a few times regarding dark eyes(dark circles). Obv im willing to do anything it takes but unsure whether gluten has a part to play because of no symptoms.

Appreciate you takin the time

Thanks John
