Celiac Panel Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I received my Celiac Panel results and they were as follows:

Tissutrans IgA 3

Gliadin IGG AB 29 (this one came back high)

Gliadin IGA AB 5

Should I be concerned about these numbers?

Also, everytime I eat, it goes right through me! I have had my gallbladder checked and it is fine.

Thanks,

I'm suspicious that both the IgA's game back low. He should have taken a total IgA to tell if those two tests were useful or not. Good luck with the biopsy! (Though you'll have to keep eating gluten for it. :-( )

I ditto Tiffany.

The total serum IgA needs to be done because that rules out IgA deficiency and if you have IgA deficiency then those tests were not accurate.

What is the total IgA? I thought I had that done??? who knows..all these tests are confusing :P

I have to have a colonscopy and an endoscopy on Tuesday :wacko:

Will my doc be able to tell right away if I have celiac disease?

Thanks :)

Total IgA is a measure of the total IgA antibodies in your blood stream. It helps determine if you're IgA deficient. Here's an analogy to explain why it's important:

Someone asks you if you want a drink, you say yes, they say how much of the glass you want filled. Well... if you don't know how big the glass is, you don't know what to tell them. If you say "half full", but it's a shot glass, you've got very little drink!

If you're IgA deficient, you don't have much at all in your body, so a lower than normal anti-gliandin IgA (which is specific for gliandin) doesn't mean much because your "glass" (your normal amount) is already much lower than normal.
