Got My Test Results And I Am Worried

Recommended Posts

My chiropractor just got me the results of my blood tests

The only item that was out of order was the Gliadin Antibody (IGG) where anything above a 17 was positive, I got a 45. But, all of the other numbers were normal.

So, am I wasting my time going to a GI doctor? Will they just tell me it is not enough evidence to be concerned? Just wondering what you all think.

thanks!

It might indicate two things: that you have Celiac Disease or that you have a gluten intolerance. The IgG antigliadin test, while not as great as the others, is STILL included in the panel, so there is some diagnostic help provided in it.

I personally don't think going to the GI is a waste of time because they may be able to identify other potential problems (i.e., instead of gluten related, or on top of gluten related).

Dolly, besides the gliadin IgG, what other tests did they run?


Many hard-to-define health problems, some since childhood.

Diagnosed with spastic colon circa 1984.

My father also had many hard-to-define health problems, as did his brother.

His brother's daughter biopsy-diagnosed as celiac, June 2007.

My Prometheus Celiac Plus blood panel results (late November 2007) were **very** negative

---- except for one DQ8 gene.

Awaiting results of EnteroLab stool tests.

Meanwhile, have been gluten-free since 4 December 2007, and starting to feel better!
