Understanding test results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All, I'm new to this site and to the possibility of Celiac. I have recently had a ( tissue Transglutaminase IGA ) test and am wondering about the results. Not sure if my results are even possible. These results were obtained using the Inova Quanta Flash h-tTG IgA chemiluminescent immunoassay. My result was 3447.6CU. If someone could please tell my what this means and if these numbers are even realistic.

Thanks

The download link on this page tells about the ranges for the test.  It looks like your readings are possible?

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Looks like you tested positive.  That typically means getting a GI referral for biopsies via endoscopy.  Keep eating gluten until all testing is done.  

I would not worry about the super high result.
