Help With Test Results

27 December 2011 - 08:21 PM

Hi!

Five years after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I finally got the follow-up tests to see how I am doing with the diet. Problem is, I had to go to my general physician and request the test, as I do not have health insurance. So, the only thing my general doctor can tell me is that I came back positive for Celiac Disease, which is not very helpful. What I want to know is if my results show that I am doing well on the diet. My results are:

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA: 7 (units 0-19, negative 0-19, weak positive 20-30, moderate to strong positive >30 )
Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG: 45 High (units 0-19, negative 0-19, weak positive 20-30, moderate to strong positive >30 )
t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA: <2 (u/mL 0-3, negative 0-3, weak positive 4-10, positive >10)
t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG: <2 (u/mL 0-5, negative 0-5, weak positive 6-9, positive >9)
Endomysial Antibody IgA Negative

[These are LabCorp results]

I am most concerned about the Deamidated Gliadin test that came back "High". Can anyone help me read this?

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!! xoxo
