Help Intrepretating Blood Test Results

Recommended Posts

Guest adamssa

hello,

I have know am gluten intolerant for awhile, but only recently got own copy of results. anyways, i was wondering if any of you could give me any insight about these? i was already gluten-free when i had the tests taken but the dr. said those would not alter the results, and that i am gluten intolerant and not celiac. I kind of doubt the part about being gluten-free not altering the test results.

thanks,

Sara

I had been seeing a former medical dr that also does herbs, but i think he's more conservative than the naturopathic i see now...

The blood test sheet i have says (if I'm reading it right, that greater than an 8 ttg means postive, but I wasn't sure that I was reading it correctly. So do you think I could classify myself as celiac? I realize that practically it makes no difference, and I've been as gluten-free as I would be they had told me I had celiac. Still, it seems like celiac can sometimes indicate more damage so I'd just like to know.
