In Topic: Finally Got Some Test Results - Questions

22 February 2013 - 09:48 AM

My doctor referred me for a biopsy but the soonest I can be seen is the end of April.  sigh.  I guess I just get to wait until then to find out if it's really celiac.  Are there other things that can trigger a higher IgG number?

I got the results in the mail. Here is what it says:
Celiac gene pairs present? Yes
Celiac disease possible. Consider biopsy.
Gliadin (deamidated) Ab, IgA, S <10.0 Ref <20 negative
Gliadin (deamidated) Ab, IgG, S 25.9 Ref <20 negative. Interpretation: weak positive (20-30)
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) 147 Ref 61-356
Tissue transglutaminase Ab, IgA, S. <1.2. Ref <4 negative
Tissue transglutaminase Ab, IgG, S. 2.5 Ref <6 negative

Thanks for your continuing help!

Thanks!  I feel like my doctor knows very little about these tests and I had to tell him what should be tested, so I'm not absolutely positive on the results as I've only talked to him on the phone.  He is sending me a copy of the results though.  The initial test that came back negative was a "Celiac Disease Cascade IgA" which lists Immunoglobulin A, S at 172, which was listed as "negative serology."

It appears this is the test they ran most recently, as Mayo was the lab that did it.  http://www.mayomedic...erpretive/89031

So it isn't weird that I've been feeling better recently while eating gluten?

Also, since I did get the positive genetic test, this means that my little boys should be tested too, correct?  Would I need to have them get just the regular blood test or the genetic typing?

My doctor finally returned my call and I told him all these values that my test should have yielded. He said he would talk to the pathologist about it. Did everyone have these initial tests done by their reg doctor or a gastroenterologist? I'm wondering if I. Should just ask for a referral to one.

What we were looking for is the actual results relating to celiac, not the comments. :)

That's all there was. The 172, the reference range, and the comments.
