Can We Start From Scratch?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

There's so much to read on this site it can be a little overwhelming. Can I ask an old timer to go over with us newbies, exactly what blood tests we'll need?

My appointment is on Aug. 31. I want to make sure that all of my bases are covered.

Thanks!

Hi and welcome!

Here's a list of the blood tests that make up the complete Celiac Panel:

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG

Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA

Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA

Total Serum IgA

Ask that they do all of them to get as complete a picture as possible, and don't stop eating gluten or go "gluten lite" before the test.

Best of luck on the 31st :)
