Complete Blood Panel

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm going to a GI doc tomorrow and I read in here somewhere recently that there is something called a "complete celiac blood panel" which can give you a very strong idea of whether or not you have celiac disease. I can't seem to find where I read it. Can anyone send me a link? I think it was 4 tests. I want to go to the doc tomorrow prepared and ready to defend myself. :) (I lost faith in doctors a long time ago).

Thank you!

Caryn

The most commonly used tests are:

Gliadin Antibody (IgA and IgG)

Reticulin Antibody

Tissue TransGlutaminase (Also an antibody test, I think)

I'm not sure whether the last 2 are IgA or IgG ... does anyone else?

This is the full coeliac panel:

Anti gliadin (AGA) IgA

Anti gliadin (AGA) IgG

Anti-Endomyosial (EMA) IgA

Anti-Tissue Transglutiminase (tTg) IgA

Total Serum IgA

Good Luck!! :)

My husband just had a complete blood work up and received his results. The nurse said his numbers should have been between 0-9 and my husbands was 19. Can anyone explain this range that they gave him?

He is going in now for an endoscopy and colonoscopy. Everything I read says if the blood test is positive then the biopsy will be positive. However when my son was around 2 they said his blood work came back positive but his biopsy was normal. Now I am scared that my son really does have it.

Any advice
