Hello! Friday afternoon I was given lab results by my endocrinologist 's office over the phone. Due to fatigue and numerous stomach problems for years (I was told IBS) and inability to lose weight I asked my endo to test me for celiac disease. I was scratching the numbers down on a post it so bear with me....

igA 80.3

igG 82.2

tissue transglutaminase igA sep AB 113.9

I was told all should be less than 20. I already have a call to my family dr.   to recommend a GI specialist. My questions are...has anyone else had numbers like this? Is it possible my hypothyroidism could be throwing off the numbers for a false positive for celiac disease? Thank you in advance for your comments!

Very unlikely that the results were impacted by your being hypo, but I am not a doctor!  (I do have celiac disease and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.) Keep eating gluten until all testing is complete.  The next step is typically an endoscopy.  At least four to six biopsy samples should be taken. 

The good news is that you will start to feel so much better once you have been given the okay to go gluten free.  Be sure to check out our Newbie 101 thread for great tips.  We are here to help!

Thank you so much for your reply! 

I am definitely unnerved by the possibility of celiac disease and at the same time more than a little relieved that I might finally have an answer to my stomach issues that have bothered me for years. I definitely will continue to use this site.

Yesterday I finally had my GI specialist appointment and have my scope procedure scheduled for mid-January.
