6 months in, lab results

Hello!

I have had an ultrasound done and also just received results from bloodwork 6 months after diagnosis. As soon as I received a diagnosis I immediately started a gluten-free and low dairy diet. I did not eat gluten before my ultrasound, and I was lucky that the results from it showed some atrophy and were consistent with "partially healed celiac". My question is regarding the bloodwork. I had my IgA retested and it came back at: 3.1 (<7). Is this consistent with what somebody on a no gluten diet would have? Is this higher than it should be? My household is not gluten free but I'm the chef so I'm pretty anal about cross contamination. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanx!

I think you meant an endoscopy, not an ultrasound!  ?. Anyway, as long as your test results  are going down, you are doing well.  They do not have to hit zero from my research.  Just below the lab range.

Yes, I did mean endoscopy, not ultrasound - uggg!

Well, got new test results back, and my AT IgA is now at 1.7 (>7 is questionable, >10 is danger). YAYAYAYAYAY!!!! 

Got a bunch of other bloodwork done, thyroid, liver, pancreas, Vitamins, etc... Everything was good other than Iron which was a bit low, and Vit D which was borderline (normal for this latitude in the wintertime, though now i'll be bumping up my Vit D from 2000 IU to 3000 IU daily). I've been feeling really good lately too. I do still have times where I get the autoimmune fatigue, but they are few and far between :)
