In Topic: Intro And Question

Also began wondering is I should be even more alarmed by the extreemly high Tissue Tranglutaminase IgA if 1942.3.  Really hoping it doesn't indicate anything more sinister than Celiac.  I will talk to the Primary care next week, but why do I always freak out on the weekends.  Has anyone ever even seen a value that high?

Thanks all for your input.  The endocrinologist ran a bunch of blood tests on my daughter because of her short statue.  The only ones in the “Celiac Panel” were the Immunglobulin A which came out at a 65 and the Tissue Transglutaminase IgA which was 1943.4 (my original post was from memory and slightly off)  I don’t like the idea of waiting until June because I don’t want to cause anymore damage to her body, but she had no other symptoms besides her height so she feels fine.  We are on a cancelation waiting list, so we will see if we can get in sooner.

  I asked my OBGYN to run the Transglutaminase test just to rule me out…never suspected a positive result.  I see my Primary care on Tuesday to follow up, maybe he will run a more extensive test.  He is my daughter’s Doc too so, I will ask him if we should run the rest of the panel suggested.  All this stuff is new to be, not really how I wanted to continue my education, but best to know now, and good that it is something controllable by a healthier diet not a lifetime on meds.  

Best to all of you.
