Test Results Normal So Far

Recommended Posts

My blood tests results are slowly trickling in and so far they are all normal.  I know 4 tests were being run but am not sure which one I am still waiting for.  I don't think I want to pursue further testing....just would like to go gluten free and get on with my life.  My brother is severely gluten intolerant (never tested) so at least I won't be the only one.

 

Deaminated Gliadin AB IGG   2      Range 0-19

Deaminated Glaidin AB IGA   3      Range 0-19

Total IGA                              159     Range 68-378

It's hard to wait for the results, isn't it? I remember having a hard time not thinking about it.

 

Best wishes with the gluten-free diet. I hope you feel better quickly.

There is still the tTG IgA (doctors' most used test) and tTG IgG, the EMA IgA (very specific but not positive until there is extensive damage), and there are the old AGA IgA and AGA IgG tests.

As far as I know, the DGP tests are one of the best ones for picking up early intestinal damage. You might be non-celiac gluten intolerant (NCGI) in which case you will not have the intestinal damage but every other unpleasant celiac symptom could apply... Thereisjustno blood test to diagnose it yet. :(

It is possible that your celiac disease is serologically negative but you could have a positive endoscopic biopsy. It is not common but it happens. I think it is more likely that you are NCGI, simply because it is 6-30 times more common than celiac disease is...and probably that much harder to diagnose.

I hope you'll go gluten-free for at least a few months in order to determine if it is NCGI. Good luck in whatever you decide.
