Does This Look Like Celiac.

Recommended Posts

I have had diarrhea issues for almost a year along with extreme fatigue and muscle/joint pain. After visiting a gastro I was told I may have celiac disease. I go in on the 31st for my endoscopy, but here are my blood results... Tissue transglutaminase AB, IGA 8 U/ml; Gliadin(deamidated) AB (IGA) 36 H; immunoglobulin A 195

My vitamin B was only 237, and my vitamin D was 36.... And my CRP was slightly elevated. Are these results indicative of Celiacs disease? I did fast for my blood work..... Didn't know I wasn't suppose to. Oops

The tTG IgA is slightly more specific for celiac disease, but only by a percent or two. The DGP tests are very good celiac tests, if it was high, then you are most likely a celiac... Welcome to the club. ;)

This article, on page 12 discusses how specific the tests are:
