Blood Test Was Postive

Recommended Posts

Ask for your test results and then post them.  Someone may be able to tell you more about it.  Also, someone may have a guess.

 

Here is a list of tests they may have run.  Perhaps you can recognize the name?

 

This is the full blood panel that you should have been tested for:

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
Total Serum IgA

 

I think that Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA is the doctors favorite.

 

 

 

Welcome, and get better!

Welcome to the board.

 

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that dmages the villi of your small intestines and causes many many symptoms, some are gastrointestinal, and others are not. If you avoid all gluten (barley, rye, wheat) then symptoms will reverse and your intestine will heal. If your doctor wants you to do more tests, don't stop eating gluten yet or it will affect the test results.

 

Dr Green has a good book on it. Celiac Disease fo Dummies is an easy read.  Look around the site and read lots... you'll get the hang of it soon.
