Hi, I am hoping someone can help me, I had blood work done but for the life of my I cannot understand the results:

Deamidated Gliadin peptide Ab IgG = <^0.5   (Units U/mL)

“Reference” is <12.00

----Note on Test: IgG antibody to deamidated gliadin has approximately 85% sensitivity and 95% specificity for celiac disease. Deamidated gliadin IgG has particular utility in the detection of celiac disease in children younger than 2 years old and

those with IgA deficiency. Tested by a multiplex flow immunoassay (BioPlex) method.

 

Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA = <^0.5 (Units U/mL)

“Reference” is <12.00

-----Note on Test: IgA antibody to tissue transglutaminase has approximately 95% sensitivity and specificity for celiac disease. False negative results may occur with a gluten-restricted diet or IgA deficiency. The BioPlex method includes an internal control to confirm IgA is sufficent, thus avoiding false negatives due to IgA deficiency. Tested by a multiplex flow immunoassay (BioPlex) method

 

 

Thank you so much for any help at all!

Jackie, we need a little more information please. Were those the only 2 tests done on you?

The 2 tests you posted are negative but that is not the full celiac panel.

Yes, they told me these were the only tests.

Which ones should I need above these? They consider this the " Celiac Disease Testing " where i got the tests done. 

Any help would be great, my doctor is not very helpful.

This is the full, current celiac serum panel:

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
Total Serum IgA 

 


Also can be termed this way:

Endomysial Antibody IgA
Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
GLIADIN IgG
GLIADIN IgA
Total Serum IgA 
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG

    Thank you Ranchers Wife.  Since I'm asymptomatic, I would not know if I had gluten. I cannot imagine having to worry about getting sick from cross-contamination. 
    Hi Jenna1028, They test for DH by taking a small skin biopsy from clear skin next to a lesion.  If you have DH, you have celiac disease.  But, you need to be eating a gluten diet for 12 weeks (gluten challenge) before getting the skin bi...
    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.
