What was your score on that DGP IgA Test? I scored a 20 on by DGP IgA with nothing else positive, 6 months later I decided to do the blood test again with a different GI and it was a 16, all other ttGs and the IgG were similar or lower than the first test, the DGP IgG which was 12 the first time was 6. The 2nd GI I saw was more specialized in celiac and said that DGP IgAs are strongly correlated because most of the time people test off the charts on them, usually over 30 which is the strong positive threshold, you're not going to get that kind of score with anything but celiac. He said though that people who do test down closer to the threshold of 20 WITHOUT any other positive celiac test often times do not have celiac. What DO they have is the question, most are often left with IBS diagnosis, so could a percentage of IBS patients have positive DGP IgAs? Given we know there are many non-celiac IBS patients with gluten sensitivity I guess its possible. I also exhibited some improvement in gastro symptoms when I went gluten free for 10 days or so back in March and also had nothing else off on regular blood tests such as potassium, iron or calcium levels.
