Need Help With Test Result!

Recommended Posts

Guest Zara

I had some tests done last year by LabCorp. I didn't have a good experience with my doctor so I got a copy of the results for myself. Can someone please help me with interpreting the results? I thought I was tested for celiac but now I'm not sure...Thanks!

Immunofixation Result, Serum

An apparent polyclonal gammopathy; IgG. Kappa and lambda typing appear increased

Immunoglobulin G, Qn, Serum 1794 H mg/dL (average 700-1600)

Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 10 H mg/dL (average 70-400)

Immunoglobulin M, Qn, Serum 87 H mg/dL (average 40-230)

Right now my symptomps are bloating, cramps, belching, constipation. Also, I don't know whether this is relevant but I had a bad ekzema when I was little (it went away after treatment with ointments). Thank you!

looks like maybe you are IgA deficient-----and there is no celiac test among those. my son is IgA deficient, so he has to have a total IgG serum test and a tissue transglutaminase IgG test done when we do his celiac testing. (he has the celiac gene, so he will have yearly testing)

Thanks, Chrissy! Do I need to tell my doc that I'm IgA deficient and thus need a more comprehensive celiac test, or will he do that automatically for a new patient?

I'm asking because sometimes doctors get upset if a patient already has some info so I don't want to make him feel like I'm telling him what to do (even if I am :rolleyes: )
