Feedback on celiac panel

Recommended Posts

So I am a newbie.  I am 36 and have never known what it feels like to feel "normal".  After giving birth 16 months ago I have felt the worst I have felt in my life.  After several blood tests my dr found my celiac test to be "abnormal".  I have an appt with GI doc but not for a month so just wanted help on reading these labs and of celiac is a likely scenario here they are- thanks!

It would help us to help  you if would you list the normal ranges from your lab report as they can vary from lab to lab depending on what manufacturer's test they use.

Usually the ranges I've seen for positive are >3, or >19.  I think it is likely that you are high positive for the two celiac tests.  (The Immunoglobulin A test is not a test for celiac, it is to be sure your IgA is in the normal range because if not, the other tests aren't valid if they are negative).

Keep eating gluten until you see the GI in case he wants to do a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
