Celiac Endoscopy Results

Recommended Posts

Do these results indicate a positive Celiac Disease - in my opinion they are not conclusive and no symptoms exist

 

 

The duodenal findings are compatable with the celiac disease iin the appropriate clinical settings but are not pathognomonic, being seen in other settings as infectious entities, other food sensitivities, drugs and autoimmune disorders.  Clinical correlation is required

Here is the complete celiac panel. I would ask for a retest and insist on the complete panel. I tested negative on both the TTGs. Only one positive on the DGP and my total serum was fine, yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage.

-tTG IgA and tTG IgG

-DGP IgA and DGP IgG

-EMA IgA

-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)

-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests

-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken

Good luck! Do not give up!

We did and they were as follows:

 

12/12

TTG - AB - IGG =  2 should be <6
TTG - AB - IGA =4  should be < 4
IGA Serum -185 = should be 70 - 432
 
none of which are positive yet we are being told my 13 year old has Celiac

 

 

Isn't that tTG IgA a weak positive?  The normal range is less than 4 (<4) and he was a 4.

Look at this link and share with the doctors, I would think they would want to make sure it isn't anither issue causing the intestinal damage.
