Please Help Me With Blood Test Results

Recommended Posts

I just received my test results back.  What does this mean?  I think it means I'm negative for celiac but I do not understand them.  Thank you so much for your assistance!  I see where it says negative, but what about all of the other numbers?  Are they normal?

 

IgA, serum   186mg/dL

GE use only-for LinkLogic import when terms not specified:  Negative

Endomysial Antibody IgA, titer, serum  <1.5

anti-tissue transglutaminase IgA   4 EU

anti-gliadin antibody, IGG, serum  4

anti-gliadin antibody, IGA, serum   6

The results are not able to be interpreted without a reference range from the lab. Hopefully you can get that information.

Yes, there is usually a normal range like 0-4 or 0-20; a celiac's results would usually be elevated above the top of the normal reference range given.  We can't comment because labs (and cities) have different tests and normal ranges.

 

Best wishes.

That's not a bad looking report except for the the part that says these groups of test results would be inconclusive for celiac disease:

  • tTg IgA=Negative
  • Total IgA=Low
  • tTG IgG=Positive
  • EMA=Negative
A positive test is a positive test for celiac disease in over 95% of all cases... I don't know how they could say a positive tTG IgG is inconclusive. Odd... :blink:
  • tTg IgA=Positive
  • Total IgA=Low
  • tTG IgG=Positive
  • EMA=Negativ

And this above one made no sense to me at all!  If you can manage to create a psitive tTG IgA when you are deficient in IgA, then that just screams celiac disease.  I have only seen this happen once on these boards in the years I've been around here, and it was celiac disease then.

 

And then it says the patient only needs to eat gluten in the two weeks prior to testing to havbe an accurate test... It looks like a good report but I believe some of it's information is incorrect.  :(
