Help Wtth Results Of Celiac Panel

Recommended Posts

Guest pdwillis

hi im new to these forums. My 13 year old son got his results back from the celiac panel. His Igg score was 69.8 and his iga was 9, normal range for both is 1-25. I am really confused on what this means. Does this mean he has celiac, or does he have some other auto-immune disease. Any help would be appreciated, We cant get in to see his dr for 2 weeks, she is on medical leave.

Sure. =)

The total syrum is important to know whether or not the person is IgA deficient, and if so - the results have to be interpreted differently.

tTg and EMA are *very* specific to Celiac - so if those two are elevated, it's a good bet that a Celiac dx is in the future. IgG and IgA antibody tests DO tell of gluten intolerance or other leaky gut issues, but can't confirm or deny Celiac.

All of the tests combined give a much clearer picture. Let us know when you get the additional information!!! =)

I was assuming she meant IgA and IgG anti-gliadin antibodies, since the two seem to go hand in hand. If I was wrong, I'm sorry for misunderstanding!! =)
