Are These The Same Tests?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

A few years ago my daughter had a celiac panel done, which included

Antigliadin IgG A (positive = >30); hers was 149

Antigliadin IgA A (positive = >30; hers was 68

Recently, I asked my doctor to run a celiac panel, and this is what my results look like:

Gliadin IGG, EIA (positive = >17); mine was negative

Gliadin IGA, EIA (positive = >17); mine was negative

Was the testing done on me the same or different than my daughters? It looks different to me. I understood her results way back then -- they tested for antibodies to gluten.

I have an appointment in a few weeks with my regular doctor, and I'll discuss it with him then, but I wanted to get your opinions here as I'm not sure he really knew what to order (he's a GP, not a GI).

Thanks!

both tests were looking for antibodies to gliadin, they just used different reference ranges. testing for Ttg antibodies (and testing your total IgA serum levels) is a much more accurate way to have your blood tested.
