Celiac Vs Gluten Intolerance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Both of my children had the Celiac blood test. The both had high levels of IGG but no real presence of the other antibodies. The GI specialist said that they are doing the full work-up because I have Celiac disease, but IGG antibodies are "non-specific" and could be an allergy to anything. I was just wondering and reaching out to the parents whose children have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. What did their blood test results look like? I had some increased specific antibodies and some damage to my intestine, but if there is no damage to their intestines (even though they are still very young) then it seems as though the specialist is just going to pass it off as "something else" or "some other allergy". Please, if you are willing to give some insight on what I am missing or some blood test results, I think it would help me to talk to the doctor when I return. Why is it that I always seem to have to deal with the stubborn doctors!?!

You can get help with the blood work if you post the results here along with the variants for the lab that did the testing. Are your kids having problems or are they just being tested as a precaution?

My daughter is 2. Her results were as follows:

Gliadin Ab IgG - 35 (suggested results should be less than 11)

Gliadin Ab IgA - <3 (suggested results should be less than 11)

Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA - <3 (suggested results should be less than 5)

My son is 4. His results were as follows:

Gliadin Ab IgG -20 ((suggested results should be less than 11))

Gliadin Ab IgA - 5 (suggested results should be less than 11)

Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA - <3 (suggested results should be less than 5)

They were tested after I was diagnosed and I started seeing similar symptoms in them. My son complains of stomach aches alot, but I didn't know why. My daughter doesn't sleep through the night. She wakes up crying in pain. They both also have irregular stools and alot of gas.

Since no one seemed to have any ideas on my topic, I searched around for information and found a very useful book. If you are curious like me, this book has alot of answers for Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance. It's called Heathier Without Wheat.
