Diagnosed Celiac- Test Results ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter was diagnosed with celiac at age 7.  She is now 17.  Her levels were tested a year ago and they were off the charts.  So she met with a nutritionist again and has been doing better. Her primary doctor retested her IgA levels.  A year ago it was 52 mg/dl. Now it is 46 mg/dl. It say normal range is 61-386 mg/dl.  It is a Friday and her doctor is gone for the weekend and I just want to know what this means?

It points to the likelyhood that she is doing well with her efforts to eat gluten free.

Do you have any other antibody numbers. IgA is not the only indicator and may not be the best one for evaluating celiac disease.

I agree, they normally do a ttg test as well, is that the only test that was done?

Her current TTIgA is 241.5 CU (was 545.5 CU in 2019).

My ttg was 120ish at diagnosis.. they were tested again at 6 months in December and were at 11.

0 - 3 was marked as normal so it needs to come down a little more but I'm expecting that to take no more than a month or so.. I get it tested again in April...  Eating only fresh foods.. only packaged stuff I was eating is almond butter, Lara bar with 2 ingredients, Greek yogurt, some vanilla icecream,

On the ttIgA does it show the markers for normal, and the high mark? Each lab seems to have their own scale, so it would be helpful to have this. 

It says that <20 is normal.

The new protocol is that if someone scores 10x the celiac disease level, then they can be diagnosed with the blood test alone, however, not all doctors are following this. I would just make sure that she's not cheating on her diet, as that can happen with teenagers. My daughter is a perfect example of this!
