Stuck In The Country With A 'strong Positive' Blood Test

17 April 2013 - 10:54 PM

Hi guys

 

I'm a little shell-shocked as I read this because I don't have any real symptoms that I'm aware of and took the test now because I was planning on going off gluten in solidarity with my wife.

 

Anyway, I have a result of >136 Units for tissue transglutanimase IgA (total serum IgA of 2.54g/L) consistent with Celiac disease. However as I'm living in the country for the next 6 weeks I can't get the secondary test done.

 

How certain is it that I've got this thing? I would just like to know probabilities for my own ability to process it all.  I understand I can't go off the gluten in the meantime.

 

Grateful for your advice!!
