Biocard Tests - Is That A Line? Faint Faint Faint Line

Recommended Posts

I received the biocard home kit tests today. The first test looked like a negative, but then I looked closer and there is the faintest line that is barely distinguishable. I tested myself again and the second one came up negative, but that might have been because there was more blood in the sample (i didnt follow the directions exactly on this one) and it may have made it harder to see the line. 

 

Nothing conclusive at all. I also ordered the enterolab stool test and received that yesterday and will have those results within 3 weeks.

I think you should try doctor ordered blood tests. If your doctor doesn't want to test you, bring in the positive test to show him and that could help persuade him... it did mine. (My Biocard test line was very faint too, but I ony did one test.) If you visit the doctor, request:

  • ttg IgA (this is the Biocard test) and ttg IgG
  • DGP IgA and DGP IgG
  • EMA IgA
  • total serum IgA
  • AGA IgA and AGA IgG (older tests)

 

The Enterolab tests are not a medically accepted way of testing for celiac yet (as I understand it).  From what I have heard of them, most people will end up showing a gluten sensitivity with their tests and they have an unusually high rate of diagnosing celiacs. There are some around here who have used them but it's my observation that many around here do not trust their tests.... something to consider.

 

Best wishes. i hope you find answers.
