Hello gang,

2/3 of my sons tested positive on a celiac panel. We are scheduled to see a pediatric GI on August 9th and August 13th for appointments, and on the 17th, we expect to do an endoscope on the boys.

I asked their pediatrician to send me the test results, and would like help in interpreting them:

(first number is actual test, second number is reference range)

Martin:

Transglutaminase IgA Autoantibodies < 4.0 <4.0

Reticulin IgA Autoantibodies <1:10 <1:10

Endomysial IgA Autoantibodies <1:10 <1:10

Giladin IgG Antibodies 27.4 <10.0 ** Abnormal

Giladin IgA Antibodies <5.0 <5.0

Landon:

Transglutaminase IgA Autoantibodies < 4.0 <4.0

Reticulin IgA Autoantibodies <1:10 <1:10

Endomysial IgA Autoantibodies <1:10 <1:10

Giladin IgG Antibodies 24.4 <10.0 ** Abnormal

Giladin IgA Antibodies <5.0 <5.0

I was under the impression that if the Endomysial test came in at a regular value, that the scope will probably be negative?

I had put the boys on Gluten-free for 2 weeks, and Martin *finally* wasn't plagued with diarrhea, and actually GREW 1/2". (My children are triplets, Martin is nearly 8" shorter than his brothers)

Any input that you guys can give me would be really appreciated!

Since they didn't do a total IgA, you have no way of knowing if the results are even applicable to your boys.

Good luck with the scope.

Leap, and the net will appear.
