Please Help Interpret My Son's Test Results!

Recommended Posts

Quick background - This test was done in 2014. I had just been diagnosed with Celiac myself (via bloodtest) and so my doctor suggested we test my then 3 year old as well. He did the bloodtest and my doctor said he had it as well. I had just had a baby and my life was totally nuts at that moment so I said thank you, and our home has been gluten free ever since.

Also, my niece had been diagnosed with celiac (via bloodtest) a few years prior so I figured it's in my family. What brings me back to re-reading our results is that my sister recently brought my niece to a GI specialist who looked at her test results and said he's not convinced she has celiac. He said it's more likely a wheat allergy, and suggested she do the endoscopy.

So my "it's in the family so it makes sense I have it too" is beginning to erode. And if I understand these results at all, my son only test positively in 1 of the 3 things tested. I personally never had much in the way of symptoms but I do suspect I have DH.

So long story short, here are my son's results. I apologize because I'm just going to copy what I think it supposed to be the important part, as much as I can understand it!
 

Tissue Transglutaminase AB, IGA  25H  (less than 4 means no antibody detected)

Gliadin (Deamidated) AB (IGA) 6   (less than 20 antibody not detected)

Gliadin (Deamidated) AB (IGG) 18  (less than 20 antibody not detected)

 

 

So my understanding is that the first test there were a lot of antibodies detected, but in the last two, there were none. So, celiac?

I wish I could find my own results, but at the moment I cannot. I believe my results we that same kind of deal though, high in the first test (but not as high as his) and clear on the last two.

Thank you! He does want her to do a gluten challenge, but since she's about to start the school year, she is going to wait until next summer.

I guess what the GI doctor had told was that she only scored positive in the test he considered the weakest indicator of celiac. So I guess I was just curious If my sons results were similar to hers. I need to contact her now that I found his results, but I know there are much more knowledgeable people here!
