Old Test Results... Familiar Terms?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, recent member to the boards. Any insights or specific questions I might want to ask the specialist based on results?

Old tests' results below, will bring to appt. with specialist.

Previously I was strongly positive for Gliadin AB IgG, but within normal range for all other celiac (they tested: TTG AB IgA, Gliadin AB IgA). Though I do not see any total IgA tests.

Two separate IgG tests at 49 and 35 (anything > 30 is "strongly positive" by this particular lab).

Vit D - very low, once treated the IgG dropped some and many symptoms disappeared (as long as the supplementation is continued, if I lapse, they come back).

Biopsies completed of stomach, antrum, duodenum -- Diffuse intestinal metaplasia. Lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate. No abnormalities or evidence of any bacterial/viral infections, no evidence of celiac.

Cholesterol -- HDL good, LDL always low.

Intestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms.

The results of those biopsies sound very much like the results my DD had. Those were not 'normal' results. What our GI said was that while she was not celiac YET the results did show that she was being affected by it. As he said we had a choice, she could continue eating gluten until the damage was severe enough to call it celiac or she could stop eating gluten and prevent it from happening. It was up to her.

Ravenwoodglass -- thanks for your insights, much appreciated and helpful. Another note said 'no significant neutrophilic activity identified' - does that sound also similar?
