I admit I am a TOTAL newbie to this so thank you in advance for your patience! :) I am confirmed Hasimoto and my dr ordered a Celiac panel test which consists of tTH and Iga.  My Iga came out today at 282 (range is 70-310). The tTH is not yet in.  What the heck does this IGA test mean/do? It looks like it is in the higher normal range - so is that a good sign?  Googled all over the place and could not find anything definitive. Seems like the Iga is a confirmation only of whether there could be a false negative result to be on the look out for? Not expecting tTH back till next week so I am anxious. Not sure of these symptoms are Hashimoto still or celiacs. B12 (and Vit D) levels initially were 18 with the normal range STARTING at 32 (no odd diet to substantiate why it is so low). Started on shots and feeling a bit better. 50000/wk D Vit.

 

Any insight you have would really be appreciated. Waiting is a very hard thing to do! :unsure:

Welcome!

 

The Total Serum IgA is simply a control test to assure that you have enough IgA to assure the IgA based celiac antibody tests are as accurate as possible.  Let us know when you get your other results...many of us can answer testing questions.

 

Yes, malabsorption of nutrients can be caused by Celiac Disease.

 

Hashimoto's is strongly linked with Celiac Disease. 

 

Patience is tough...but do wait to remove gluten until you receive your blood results as more testing may be necessary -- it is important to keep ingesting gluten until all celiac testing is complete.

 

Hang in there :)

My thought was it is typo of tTG?

 

If not, let us know :)

These antibody tests are indeed negative for Celiac Disease.  We're you ingesting gluten daily when they were run?  

 

How long have you been diagnosed with Hashimoto's?  

 

In your first post you mentioned symptoms - if you list your symptoms, we have several members very knowledgeable on thyroid issues.

 

Hang in there :)
