Need Your Input

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, brand new here. Our 2 year old just got her blood test results back and we have decided to forgo the biopsy. Below are her results and I would like some experienced input as to how her numbers match up with others who have Celiac. Thanks.

Ttg IgA : >128

IgG: 228

IgA: >213

Hi and Welcome!

You will have to post the ranges, because every lab has a different interpretation. Also, this is the full Celiac panel:

Antigliadin antibodies (AGA) both IgG and IgG

Anti-endomysial antibodies (EMA) - IgA

Anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTG) - IgA

Total IgA level.

Testing is not as accurate as we would like at this time, especially in children under the age of five. There are many mothers here with children with Celiac. They are always willing to help or offer support.

The ranges for all three that i posted are as follows:

<7 negative

7-10 equivocal

>10 positive

The results we got back were for these three only; TtG IgA, Gliadin Peptide Ab IgG, Gliadin Peptide Ab IgA. Reticulin IgA screen is still pending as well as "additional testing".

Those are definately strongly positive tests. You should see a big difference in her health and perhaps even mood after you get the diet started. There is a lot to learn at first but it will be well worth it and you have come to a great place for info and support.

Those are pretty high numbers--your little one must have been pretty sick. I know I was pretty miserable when I was diagnosed and I came in at 127. But, I did as much research as I could, thoroughly cleaned my kitchen and was really disciplined. I brought the number down to 6 in six months. Every one reacts differently, but if you're really careful, your daughter will feel so much better for your efforts.
