Understanding Celiac Panel Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

After about 9 years of issues i final decided to go to the doctor and get a celiac panel done. I am not sure how to interpret the results so any insight would be appreciated, also as a side note my calcium is pretty low at 18:

Endomysial Antibody IgANegative  
 Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum259mg/dL 
 t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA<2U/mL

The first and third tests are specific for celiac disease.  They appear to be negative, but I can not tell for sure without the lab ranges (lab ranges vary).  The second test is to see if you are IgA deficient which would impact the results of the tests.  Again, it appears that you are not deficient (no ranges), so tests  1and 3 would be valid.

What are your symptoms?  Any autoimmune disorders?  Why did you ask for celiac disease testing?  

You did not get the full panel.  You could ask your doctor for:

-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG

This was was the only celiac test that was positve for me yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage.  I have Hasgimoto's Thyroiditis, but that does not explain my weird results.  Typically, small children can test this way.  

I hope this helps!
