Results I Dont Understand

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So ive had cramps and diarrhea last year for 3 months non stop, and this year as well and the doc decided to perform celiac blood tests. I got the results from the lab but the doc wasnt there, and i left Belgium (where i used to live and did the tests) the next day to move to UK. And i never talked to the doc again and i no longer have insurance there to do so. But I do not know how to interpret the tests. And that would mean a lot to find out if this is whats causing my daily problems. :(

Transglut 1.3 <8

IgG <25 <=50

IgA <25 <=50

IgA Negative <10

Hi! Welcome to the forum.

It is the weekend, so the forum is pretty quiet. Someone who might be able to interpret your results should show up soon.

It's hard to tell from what you have posted. Is there any more information on the lab report such as units. or headings to the columns?

 

No :( that is all they say. And i am eager to learn as im having serious diarrhea problems, and i dont want to go have an endoscopy and crohns tests if this is my solution :(

I'd go back for testing where you are now.  I would also think that they could still talk to you--or at least email you the full report-for the tests you've had done.  Do they have an online system there where you can look up your test results?  Maybe there is better info there???

Well, if you read them one way, you have Celiac :D.  That last IGA number is strange but you could say that all of the numbers show that if you are greater than 25 you are Celiac and your numbers are greater than or equal to 50 :D.

haha. i think its the other way round(mainly because of the 1.3?-very random number). the last Iga is the endomysium IgA (was done in a french country so i really have no idea how this is called in english). that maybe normal should be below 10 and i have negative. does it make sense?

From the results posted, it looks to me like you are negative for celiac but also deficient in IgA and IgG. I can't tell for sure though until you can post the actual whole lab results with reference ranges.

< is less than

> is greater than

I would ask for a official copy of your lab results. Those results make no sense to me and I was a lab tech for 16 years.

thats from the official copy lol. its a...quite special country in their approaches. but i guess the results mean <=50 is normal, and mine is <25.

No help from me then. I would ask for verification from a doctor as to what those results mean. If you are deficient in IgA and IgG, those tests are invalid

Those are all negative. But they didn't do the DGP or the EMA, which are more accurate. Very common to have one test positive and others negative.
