My Results Are Borderline - Where To Go From Here?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was tested a year ago for Celiac and got borderline results. Has anyone tested borderline and then got a positive? I'm just trying to figure out if I should try to get my Doctor to test me again to see if anything has changed.

My results:

IGA 9 (0-19 Negative)

IGG 17 (0-19 Negative)

TTG 18 (0-19 Negative)

I appreciate any insight or suggestions you may have.

Thank you.

Hi Laura. All of my son's tests were positive. My daughter's were borderline. The doctor said this would mean that she could develop celiac disease some time in the future. He strongly urged us not to put her on a gluten free diet because he said it is a hard life, and it would be unfair to do this since she does not have celiac disease. However, the wise and experienced members of this board urged me to to keep her glutenfree too, and I'm glad I did. She is a different person now. Many minor (yet unexplained) health issues have since resolved. I really think doctors still don't know a lot about diagnosing celiac disease.

Anyway, why not just give the diet a try (especially if you have some symptoms)?

Good luck and welcome to Celiac.com.

Thank you so much for your response. I have had symptoms for years now. They have just recently gotten worse. My symptoms are fatigue, inability to gain weight, alternating constipation and diarreah (sp?), muscle pain, hair loss, anxiety and most recently just had an ANA test come back positive. I have had further testing done because my doctor thought it might be Lupus but all of those came back negative. I have also had numerous tests for other things and they all come up negative.

I think my next move will be to try the diet and see if I notice a difference in my symptoms.
