My Daughter's celiac disease Test Results

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm new to the board. My mom was recently dx'd with celiac disease, so I'm having my children tested. My oldest daughter is being tested first as she seems to have many of the celiac disease symptoms. She was recently dx's as lactose intolerant as well.

The nurse just called and said her celiac disease results were all normal except the Iga antibody test. She said that was low (just barely) and she was going to check with the doctor to see if we needed further testing.

Anyone know what this means?

Thanks much!

One possibility is that your daughter has IgA deficiency (more common in coeliacs)

If she has this it means she wouldn't produce enough antibodies to produce a 'positive' blood test (even if she is a coeliac)

Having said that - lots of people on this board have had negative bloods but have seen fantastic results going gluten-free.

Good Luck :)

Maybe she meant that the result was low positive, just barely positive. This would be positive still.
