Igm Deficiency And Celiac...any Connection?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if and IgM deficiency would affect the antibody blood tests?

 

I believe the celiac antibodies are all IgA type not IgM.

 

I have selective IgM deficiency, but have none of the usual respiratory or allergic conditions associated with it.

 

I have horrible reactions with wheat: the full set of symptoms associated with celiac both intestinal and neurological.   However I test negative for the IgA celiac antibodies, so my gastro tells me it cannot be celiac.   I think there are many immune type responses to food, and celiac is simply a specific one they know how to identify.
