My daughter on the Gluten challenge: Which gluten panel is more comprehensive please?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum members :

So my daughter who has been on the Gluten Challenge for about 8 weeks now, and we want to do the Comprehensive panel.

-tTG IgA and tTG IgG

-DGP IgA and DGP IgG


-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)

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

We are not having any luck with a clinic that does all of these tests.


I would be more than grateful if you can tell me which of these two Panels is more complete.

Sorry , I do sound probably ignorant (and in these matters I am just beginning to learn ) and I am in desperate need of assistance.


PANEL 1- (free clinic)

-immunoglblulin GAM (IgA, IgG, IgM)



(He also suggested the following tests:

ALT, Alk phosphate, Vit B12, Ferritin.)


PANEL 2- (Paying clinic)

1.        Deaminated Gliadins IgG & IgA (DGP IgA)

2.        Anti-Tissue transglutaminase IgA(tTG)

3.        Total IgA (control test) we don’t offer total IgG as part of this panel '

4.     ESR

I didn’t recognize AGA IGA and AGA IgG' was what the lab technician told me.


Thank you so much,
