I don't know the answers for you as I am a older Celiac, but, this will bump it up for you to keep your thread current, and I will continue to do so until you have an answer.

I'm not familiar with those specific tests (other than the ANA) so unfortunately I don't have any insight for you. Just bumping too in case someone else knows something.

I don't know about these tests either, but you might want to ask them about the normal testing that is done and why it wasn't on her.

Ttg

IgG

IgA

and one I'm drawing a complete blank on right now......someone will add t, I'm sure.

She also needs to be checked for anemia


If you're looking for info on how to get started on the gluten-free diet, check out this List for Newly Diagnosed.

Self - Pain free since going gluten-free 9/05 (suffered from unexplained joint pain entire life), asthma improving, allergies improving, mysterious rash disappeared (probably DH)

Husband - Type 1 diabetic, Negative bloodwork

Son - Elevated IgA, Very high IgG, 2 negative biopsies - HLA DQ2 and DQ8 positive, Amazing dietary response since 1/06

Daughter - Congenital Heart Defect (2 surgeries), Reflux, choking issues, eczema, egg allergy - HLA DQ2 positive, Good dietary response (via me because of nursing) since 9/05

She had those already and the biopsy and she does have celiac. But these tests the rheumatologist did,I am just trying to figure out their meaning.

Thanks

I'm not familiar with any of the tests but I found this at lab tests online for one of the tests run:

I heard back from the rheumy. She said her ANA is slightly positive. And over 5% of patients with a + don't even have autoimmune disorders. But I then asked if she can explain what all her other symptoms that seemed like lupus symptoms. But we will see what she says. And the immunoglobulin they said it is ok to be low in kids with periodic fevers but I also asked if they tested for it or if she did. And the alpha 1 I guess was norm in june so she isn't concerned about that. So hopefully her next email will be a little more clear to me.

I'll keep you posted.

Thanks
