Okay I just want to be sure I read this right, here are my sons scores after being gluten-free for over a week...

(test was done 5/18/2005, but I am revisiting tests latly...)

GLIADIN IGG ABS 53.9 (normal <25)

GLIADIN IGA ABS 12.0 (normal <25)

IGA QUANTITATIVE BLO 65 (normal 14-159)

ANTI TTG 0.1 (normal not listed)

I have taken this to be a postive test result. IgA goes down with gluten-free diet, and the diet has been so mircalous in the cure I taken that to be a confirmation. Am I right?

It also has a note that says

For celiac disease, IgG anitbodies are more sensitve than IgA, but IgA are more specific then IgA antibodies. The level of IgA antibodes decreases with a gluten-free diet. IgA and IgG rise signifgantly durring gluten challage, sometimes sevearl months befor clincal relapse.

Oh forgot to mention the bispoy showed "damage consitient with a reaction to food". Thats what the lab said. And it was recomend we check for issue with foods. Nothing specific at all. :(

Vincent, the bloodwork shows that Tymber has a severe reaction to something. His intestines showed damage, and he had an amazing response to the gluten free diet. That translates into a firm diagnosis as far as I am concerned.
