    Oh I'm sorry I didn't notice that the picture cut off. Let me attach a better one. These are the only labs that I have had done that have IgG, IgM or igA in the name. These tests were completed when the Dr was looking for what he called " autoimmune disease" to explain my liver and bile duct problems. Unfortunately if these aren't the celiac tests I have been Gluten free for 6 weeks so to my understanding it would be pointless to request the tests now. Thanks for taking a look and giving me any insight that you may have.

    Those labs do not look like celiac tests. The first three MIGHT just be measuring total antibody levels of the three different classes, but on the very right it has IgA Serp (Serp cut off?) and I don't know what the Serp is referring to. The first column is the test name, the second column your value, the third column the units of measure, the fourth column the normal range. The first one is a tiny bit low, all the rest in the normal range.

    Since this post is going around again, I thought I would add my recent experience at Rudy's. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. I ordered my family's food first put it on a tray and then ordered mine separately. I ordered only chicken and turkey. The staff changed gloves and used a new cutting board and knife. My server washed his hands, wiped down the scale and put my meat separately into a tray. I washed my hands before I ate. I did not eat any of the side and brought my own fruit to go with it. Since I don't get immediate symptoms, I can't tell you if that was enough. But, their meat (except the pork - maybe ) is gluten free. I think I did everything I can to avoid CC and the staff was extremely helpful . This is the only restaurant I have eaten at in 4 months if that tells you anything. I love Rudy's!!!

    I got my script from the doc... it's for total IGA and TTG-IGA. Guess that's a good start? It also says "fasting" on the requisition, do I really need to be?

    Something that's always weirded me out since I became somewhat non-responsive on repeat biopsies: I don't get colds anymore. Ever. I used to get maybe 5 a year ? standard stuff. Nothing in the past 3 years. I get a lot of sleep these days, but still. My girlfriend gets sick; I do not. Anyone else find their common transient illnesses take a strange turn after diagnosis? I hypothesize having an abnormal/overactive immune system might take down common bugs hard, but I also assume it's far more complicated than that.
