Recommended Posts

Hi, I went to my GP with stomach pains, bloating, fatigue, numbness in hands/feet. They suggested a celiac screening, and my results are as follows:

 

Immunoglobulin A (range 70-400 mg/dL)                            result: 237 (in range)

Endomysial IgA Abs, IFA NEGATIVE                                       result: NEGATIVE titer  (in range)

Transglutaminase Ab,IgA (range <15.0 U/mL)                      result: <0.5 (in range)

Gliadin Deamidated Ab,IgG (range <15.0 U/mL)                  result: 0.5 (in range)

Gliadin Deamidated Ab,IgA (range <15.0 U/mL)                  result: 18.6 High

 

 

My GP suggested i see a Celiac specializing GI. I keep getting mixed messages online when I research what these results mean, and I couldn't get an appointment for a few weeks. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

That was me!  I have only tested positive on the DGP IgA, even on follow-up tests.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe patches.  So....keep eating gluten until you get that GI consult.  

I have researched this endlessly.  It appears that only the very young and the very old seem to test this way.  I am neither.  There is a reason that there are several celiac blood tests.  You are lucky that your doctor ordered the complete panel!

    Mistakes can set you back.  Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response.  Once triggered, it can go off for days, weeks or months.  Like my family member who has MS.  She would have severe flares that would last for six weeks or mor...
