Got Copies Of My Test Results

Recommended Posts

I went to my GI doc yesterday and got copies of my test results. He said the bolod test and endoscpy were inconclusive but since my weight has stablized and I'm feeling alot better to stay on the diet. He said my body actually doesn't produce ENOUGH iga antibodies and that that can mess up the test. I tested negitve in everything but HLADQ8.

What does all this mean. There are enough little things to point celiac disease regraurdless of the test. My body has weird reactions to things so I'm wondering if a low iga can do the same thing. I go to the internist on the 5th so I might get more answers from the allergy panel. I'm also going to ask him to re run the celiac disease panel in about six months to see where I am. Has any one else had this problem or can anybody tell me what too little iga can cause?

Sounds like you have a doctor who's on top of it. Some people are Iga deficient, which means, as your doctor says, your Iga test is useless. I'm not sure why this happens, but you can certainly still have celiac. I'd say you already have the best proof -- you feel better. Inconclusive results added to feeling better seems like a diagnosis to me.
