I Don't Understand My Blood Test Results Help!

19 April 2013 - 06:55 AM

I've been reading all about these test results and I don't understand what I have. There seems to be different wording for some of the tests and I don't understand my results. I know one is high, but does that mean I've got Celiac Disease, or just a gluten intolerance  Do I need to get the biopsy done? I've been gluten-free for 3 months now, would I need to go back to eating gluten before I get the biopsy done?

 

Here are my test results:

 

Immunoglobulin A: 427 (normal range 68-378)

Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody, lgA: 5 (normal range 0-19)

Gliadin lgA Antibodies: 5 (normal range 0-19)

 

thanks in advance for any assistance! 


Gluten-Free Lite Beer

15 March 2013 - 05:39 AM

Hello everyone. I'm new to this site and newly gluten-free. I have been trying different types of beers to see if I can find one that tastes like Bud Lite or similar brands. I don't like dark beers, and I was hoping there was a beer that tasted closer to a lite beer. I have tried Redbridge, but it has an odd flavor to me. I've had ciders, but I'm sick of those. I've tried Omission, and that was absolutely disgusting to me. Bards is ok, but still not lite beer. I know that it will be difficult. I tried the raspberry New Planet which was good, but I'm thinking it was only good because it tasted like raspberries instead of beer. Any other suggestions?
