Can't Find Answer In Any Other Post...help

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just got the results from my blood test and they are negative =( It may sound odd but I was REALLY hoping and praying for a positive result b/c it would mean an end to years of unexplained problems.

Ok so here is my question, I have heard a lot on these boards about people getting false negative...but does that just mean that those people have "boarderline" or "weak positive" results? I am looking at the test results right now and my scores are LOW!

Antiglaidin IgA = 1

Antiglaidin IgG = 2

tTG IgA = 1

tTG IgG = 1

A little backround, for about 2 months before blood test I was doing Weight Watchers Core, which is somewhat low carb, really the only gluten I was eating was a bowl of shredded wheat in the morning and possibly some trace ammounts of hidden gluten although I wasn't eating much processed food at all. I tried to pump up the gluten in the week I had between the doc prescibing and me actually having the blood drawn, but....

Is it possible that my diet was too low in gluten to show the anitbodies in my blood but high enough to cause symptoms? I have been gluten free since the test since that seems to be the real test and I "think" I feel better but I'm not sure of anything anymore.

Please be honest, am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks in advance,

Jessica

I know it's easier to have that piece of paper that says you can't eat gluten, but not everyone gets results that are conclusive. Go gluten-free, if you feel better, that is the best indicator of whether your body gets poisoned by gluten, period. :D

The ranges given on the report I am reading are as follows, respective of the order in the original post. My levels do seem very low! Not even close to being in the middle. Does that mean anything....my doc just said my tests came back fine....
