Testing Relatives

Recommended Posts

My doctor advised that my family get tested as well since my results were positive. A family members Tissue Transclutaminase IgA cam back 1.23 (<.90 as standard range). Could it be elevated because they are directly related (immediate family member).

 

Thanks.

celiac is genetic, therefore your relative is prob. celiac as well.

The only medical condition I know of, that a direct relative can elevate, is blood pressure! :)

If their antibodies are elevated, its because their bodies are making antibodies. Not sure how your body would cause them to make antibodies. The reason a doctor wants them tested is because Celiac is genetic. They have a higher probability of having Celiac than the general population.
