Blood test results positive, biopsy delayed due to Xmas. Can someone help me break down my blood resilts

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was feeling unwell after eating certain foods the last 6months, I went to the doctor an he did a blood test for Coeliac. It came back positive. 
Gliadin igG- 16.0 u/ml

TTg IGa- 31.0 u/ml

as I got these results a week before Xmas everyone is closed an I have to wait now until they reopen. I’m continuing to eat gluten to help have my biopsy be accurate. Are my numbers high? 

I’m feeling very overwhelmed, I’m also on medication for high cholesterol which was 8.8 August 2020, so I changed my diet to help that, now this.

Do you have the reference numbers used by the lab so we can see what they call normal? Labs don't all use the same scale. Can't tell much without that.

You don't have to eat a lot of gluten to prevent healing of the small bowel mucosa. The equivalent of a slice or two of bread should do it and help you feel better than eating gluten with every meal until your biopsy.

Hang in there. It will get better.

My thoughts also, my doctor won’t make too many comments until I have my biopsy done. It’s just unfortunate iv had to wait more then a month due to Xmas. Just want it sorted. May I ask what other people’s blood test numbers were? An what was the result of the biopsy??

The important thing for you to know is that you should not go gluten-free at this point until you have the recommended biopsy. You need to keep eating gluten until all testing is finished. More and more doctors are diagnosing celiac disease by only using blood test results, although your results may not allow this, but you may want to discuss this with your doctor:
