Test Result Question

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I picked up Katharine's test results today from the start of things.

In June of 06 she had a IGA of 28

In Sept of 06 we went to a GI and it had spiked to 100

In Sept of 07 we are to 80.1

In the the tests results it keeps saying "Titer to follow"

On 9/5/06 they collected an Endomysial Antibody IgA, Titer (EMA TTR)

Next to the name it says...

>=1:320 *

Can anyone tell me if this number means anything?

I have figured out the rest of the medical mumbojumbo for the cbc and the Antibody tests, but this one I couldn't figure out!


Diagnosed Fibromyalgia March 2007

Mom to Katharine, 5 years old diagnosed Celiac Disease Sept 2006

Peanut allergy

Michael 3 years old diagnosed infant reflux at 6 weeks

Dairy Soy allergy until 22 months

Neg blood tests and biopsy Feb 2008

Positive gluten-free dietary response

Next to my Endomysial Ab Titer results it reads

Positive 1:320 Negative <1:5

The positive result was circled on mine.

Hope this helps!

Life-long symptoms- difficulty gaining weight, fatigue, constipation, large stool, gas, dry skin, sinus allergies. Doctors recommended eating larger portions. Symptoms worsened.

Symptoms lasted three months before going gluten-free- weight loss, D, extreme irritability, skin problems.

11/06 Positive bloodwork.

12/06 Started gluten-free diet.

1/07 Canceled biopsy (symptoms were gone and I was finally gaining weight- 10 pounds in six weeks).

9/07 I've gained 20 pounds. Yeah!

9/08 Youngest daughter diagnosed with Celiac Disease. (D eliminated, behavior improved, schoolwork improved.)

11/08 Two years gluten-free!
