Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?

Recommended Posts

You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity?

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 2 units 0 - 19 units
Negative 0 - 19
Weak Positive 20 - 30
Moderate to Strong Positive >30
Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG 2 units 0 - 19 units
Negative 0 - 19
Weak Positive 20 - 30
Moderate to Strong Positive >30
t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 U/mL 0 - 3 U/mL
Negative 0 - 3
Weak Positive 4 - 10
Positive >10
Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified
as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr-
ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99%
specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy.
t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG <2 U/mL 0 - 5 U/mL
Negative 0 - 5
Weak Positive 6 - 9
Positive >9

I am not a doctor (nor a Rocket Scientist), but I would say that your results are soundly negative.  

You might consider going gluten free as a trial as it can not harm you (and adhering to a whole foods diet) .   You could keep a food and symptom log.  Have allergies, mast cell issues or a histamine intolerance been considered or ruled out?

I hope you figure it out!

If I were in your shoes, I would first test out a histamine intolerance diet before going gluten free.  Migraines and  fatigue seems to scream histamine intolerance.  It's most widely known in Europe, but it is gaining some ground here in the US.   But, I am not a doctor and I do not know you.  What I can suggest is that you do some research and continue to advocate for your health.  

If you go gluten free, then it's six months.  If you had celiac disease, it would take that long to heal or longer!  It's a hard diet to follow when your results are negative, but nothing's impossible!
