Need Help Understanding Test Results

Recommended Posts

The nurse just called with my recent celiac panel.  She said that it is 6.  She says normal is considered 4?  We talked about several things and I forgot to ask her more about it.  The dr. and I expected it to be slightly higher than last time (no antibodies detected) because I unknowingly took a gluten containing multivitamin for 3 weeks!  Yikes!  I'm still recovering from that.  Is 6 a good number?  I'm not sure what the number really means.

It appears that you have been getting gluten. I recall you had been talking a multi that contained gluten just a few weeks ago by mistake. Yikes! A tiny amount can really cause a reaction (start the autoimmune response). You have definitive proof and not just symptoms! I know that you learned the lesson of always checking labels every single time as ingredients change. Just stay the course! Make sure you are not getting gluten from another source. It could explain why you have not gained weight. Too many accidental glutenings?
