Help understanding test results??

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

 
 

I am a 20 year old female. I recently had some blood work done to test for celiac disease. 

The ref. range for all of the following is 0 -- 14.9 U/mL:

Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGA = <0.5 Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGG= <0.8 Deaminated Gliadin PEP IGA= 1.3

Deamninates Gliadin PEP IGG= 242.9 

Yes I have a follow up appointment with a gastroenterologist because the last panel was high. I am just hoping that someone can explain the results in a way that is easier for me to understand. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome!  We are not doctor's here, but it appears that you have a positive on the celiac blood panel.  You just need one positive for your doctor to take the next step which is a referral to a GI doctor (and you have that).  You will need to confirm celiac disease via an endoscopy where they take four to six samples.  You can read more here:

I hope this helps!

Agree. I was also diagnosed with one very high positive. You should ask what your IgA levels are - you may have IgA deficiency which I have as well which is why my IgA tests are always negative. This is just good info to know. I also have DH (the skin manifestation of celiac) and all my skin biopsies are negative because they are IgA based. Also good to know. Finally when you get the endoscopy you may find out that you don't have major gut damage but you do have high IELs (intraepithelial lymphocytes). Positive bloodwork +high IELs is now known to = celiac diagnosis. Your dr should know this.  Good luck.

I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.  

Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!  

Hang in there!
