Am I Likely To Be Dx-Ed? Please Help!

Recommended Posts

 

Panel came back negative (results below). I guess I am now going to take the gluten out for the truly gold standard. It is amazing how many people without Celiac swear they feel so much better when completely off gluten. This has been quite the roller coaster - thank you so much everyone for your support. I did learn a lot - now if only I could figure out how to bake some really nice gluten-free cakes.

Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified

as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr-

ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99%

specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy. Tissue Transglutaminase Ab,IgG 0 - 5 U/mL <2 Negative 0 - 5

Weak Positive 6 - 9

Positive >9 Endomysial IgA, Ab Negative Negative IgA 91 - 414 mg/dL 194

 

 

The final gold standard test (after antibodies) is to go 100% gluten free and see how it goes.  Keep track of symptoms to describe what happened to a doctor later if needed.  Endoscopy's sometime miss damage.  I also believe checking some nutrient levels could help determine how your digestion is working.  Vitamin B, iron, vitamin D, and magnesium might be low if the villi are damaged or you have celiac.
