Questions on results

Recommended Posts

My Dr decided to run a few extra blood tests and I am able to review them online and I'm unsure of what they mean but from doing some googling I do know that the tests are related to Celiac disease. 

Can anyone tell me what these mean?

Tissue Transglutaminase AB, IGA =my value is 92 and reference range is <20. So I'm high at 92? This test means what exactly?

IgA details =my value is 265 and reference range is 82-453. So at 265 I'm still within normal range correct? This test means?

It means you likely have Celiac Disease.  But your doctor should tell you that and refer you to a GI for further testing

So both test results wouldn't have to have resulted in high levels? So the Tissue Transglutaminase AB, IgA is the test that validates celiac disease? Then what is the other test supposed to determine?

The other test looks like the one to determine if the TTG IGA test will work on you.  The simple explanation is - a few people don't make "IGAs" that show up in the blood test.  In those people, they have to do a different test.  This shows that you are able to make the "IGAs".  A strongly positive TTG  test, like yours, almost always means Celiac.  If the test was slightly elevated, it could be from something else.   For example, my son's test was very slightly positive, but when taken again later, was very negative.  MY TTG was over 100 - it wasn't from a virus or something else.

    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.  
    @anasss Nobody in this thread has called anyone "ignorant," so please don't say that if it did not happen. Also, the use of all capitals is, in forums and other places on the Internet, generally considered yelling and impolite, and there ...
