Help Understanding Testing And Bloodwork

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So my doctor order the following blood tests to determine if my variety of issues are related to gluten.  When I went for the blood work the lab did not know what lab test they needed to order and needed to call the physician's office. I want to make sure that they correct test was ordered because it came back negative.

 

What was ran was:

 

Immunoglobulin A QN serum   results: 292 mg  Normal Range: 91-414

T-Transglutaminase (Ttg) IGA results:<2           Normal Range: 0-3

 

I did have a biopsy that was done and it did show inflammation in areas of my small intestines but the biopsy came back negative.

 

My doctor is still suspecting Celiac so he ordered more blood work.  I am currently awaiting the results of the genetic testing.

 

Thoughts?

 

Thank You

I agree, DGP is probably the next test you really want done. 

 

Inflammation in the intestines can be caused by many things including Celiac, Crohn's and ulcerative colitis. My guess is that you may also need to have a colonoscopy to rule out those being a possible issue. .
