Blood test results back

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, again.  I posted previously about my biopsy.  Got my labs for blood work back, and I don't think the Doctor requested a "panel" only Immunogloubin A which was 99 out ot a range of 81-463, and Tissue transglutaminase AB, IGA which was 1.  No antibodies detected.  Do I need to have done more blood tests, or is this sufficient?  He still says the biopsy indicates celiac, but told me that since these two tests were normal that I dont have celiac.  He's just overlooking the biopsy since it was mild.  Should I see a celiac specialist?  I should add that I had only been eating gluten for 3 weeks when the test was done.

Binti,

The U. of chicago Celiac website states they recommend 12 weeks of gluten ingestion prior to blood testing and 2 weeks of gluten prior to the biopsy.  It sounds like you didn't have a long enough exposure to gluten prior to the blood tests.

The biopsy results alone are not sufficient for a Celiac diagnosis.
