What Else Would Cause The Dgp Iga ?

05 July 2013 - 08:52 AM

I am wondering if anyone that understands the blood test to chime in. I had one positive test and it was the DGP IGA. Everything else was negative. I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. I just want to know if I need to ask my doctor to test me for some other disease. I am gluten free and have been for a few months, but lately I have had some really weird issues pop up and wasn't sure If its Celiac related or some undiagnosed issue. I'm so scared and I can't seem to get a doctor to help me. I'm pretty anemic and the doctors can't figure out why. I haven't had gluten since being diagnosed through blood work and I'm very careful when eating. I had a bad petechial rash pop up a few days ago and the doctors still couldn't figure out why it happened. I contacted the University of Chicago and they said that my results don't support a diagnosis of Celiac since everything else was negative, but my Doctor said that I have it since that the DGP IGA is very good. So confused and so over thinking I have something else, but can't seem to get a straight answer from anyone. I did not have a biopsy and went gluten free after my doc told me I was positive. I didn't know anything about Celiac disease and the importance of the biopsy. I'm too afraid to eat gluten just to get a positive biopsy :(
