    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


What Does This Mean?

My friend's son has symptoms of Celiac and was blood tested . She said

This was same with my son. He had high gliadin IgA but present but within range Transglutaminase Abs so immunologist said not coeliac.

But never got an answer for what high Gliadin Abs means!!!????

The Dr didn't say what it meant and she is left wondering what it means.

it means he's producing antibodies against the wheat protein, but doesn't have severe enough intestinal damage to show antibodies against his own tissue in the bloodstream. I'd still vote for trying the gluten free diet, despite the doctor's "advice". <_<

If she needs more prompting to go gluten free, she may be interested in getting him tested through Enterolab.

I don't think that is available in Aust. There is a test I believe but the Dr has to order it.

And her Dr said he didn't have Celiac based on that blood test - end of story.
