Hi everyone.  I just had a celiac panel done about a week ago.  I was eating 2-4 slices of bread or the equivalent every day for about 2 1/2 months.  I already know I'm gluten intolerant but my new endocrinologist wanted to test for celiac.  I have googled until my eyes fell out of my head looking for something that will help me interpret my results, and everything is either not what I'm looking for or so far over my head that I can't understand it.

Anyway, here are my results (from Quest Labs if that helps).  I'm worried sick about my high IgA (and there's precious little info about it that isn't technical), so I'm curious about that.  I'm also curious about the tTG IgG as it is barely in the range.

Can anyone shed some light on this?  It's Friday afternoon and my appointment isn't until next week.  I'm anxious and hoping someone can help.

Thanks!!

Your celiac results are all negative.  The total IgA is a little high but I’m guessing your doctor will say it’s not anything to worry about. Some labs say that the normal range goes up to 350mg/dL.

Your results are negative, but know that some celiacs are seronegative.  If you have some of the risk factors for celiac disease (like a family member, another autoimmune disease (autoimmune thyroiditis or Type 1 diabetes) iron deficiency anemia,  etc.)  or you have Gi issues (it could be a FODMAP issue), consult a GI.  There must be a reason why you went gluten free.  You should find the root cause.  

 Your IgA  result would be normal if you used my lab.  In the case of celiac disease testing, it is just a control test.  If you did not make IgA, the celiac IgA type tests would not work.

Thank you! I feel a little more at ease about the IgA now.

I have Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune thyroiditis) and other autoimmune issues. I have vitamin deficiencies if I don’t take supplements, and I’ve had IBS for years. 

At first, I only got stomach pain and diarrhea after eating gluten. Now I also get joint pain, palpitations, and sometimes other odd symptoms such as a foggy head. 
 

I am getting new health insurance soon so I will be able to afford to see a gastroenterologist as well as an allergist to see what’s going on. 
 

So many of my health conditions and symptoms point to celiac but I just don’t know any more. 
 

One thing I do know is that I need to be gluten free to feel well. 
 

Thank you for responding!
