understanding Celiac test results

Recommended Posts

Help me to understand my 10 year old sons test results from the Celiac Panel.  Wouldn't a 61 IgA be low thus an inconclusive result?

IgA                                                        61(64-246 mg/dL) L

tTG ANTIBODY, IgA                             3.77 (=19.99 Units)

DGP ANTIBODY, IgA                           1.94 (<=19.99 Units)

DGP ANTIBODY, IgG                           4.51 (<=19.99 Units)

tTG ANTIBODY IgA RESULT                 Negative (Negative)

tTG ANTIBODY IgG                              3.85 (<=19.99 Units)

DGP ANTIBODY IgA RESULT              Negative (Negative)

DGP ANTIBODY IgG RESULT              Negative (Negative)

tTG ANTIBODY IgG RESULT               Negative (Negative)

 

Thanks!

No. that should be enough for Celiac testing.

Any level of IgA above 20 mg/dl should make the tTG-IgA test valid, regardless of age.

I am not a doctor, so I can not make a diagnosis.  The test is negative, but there are some folks who test negative and still have intestinal damage, but that is very rare.  Was he consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks prior?  A gluten diet is needed.  My house is 100% gluten free.  I test my kid every few years (so far she is negative), so I have to make sure she is back to eating gluten daily for three months prior to the blood draw.  

Obviously, something is wrong with your child.  I hope you figure it out!  ?
