Can't Make Sense Of My Bloodwork

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am so sad. It looks like my bloodwork is negative. I was so hopeful that I found a solution since going g.f has made me feel so much better. Here are the results of my bloodtests. It looks like the ranges are next to the results, but I can't tell if they are the total ranges of the test or the limits of normal.

Endomysial AB negative

Gliadin IgA 1.3 (0.0 - 10.0)

Gliadin IgG .8 (0.0 - 10.0)

Transglut AB 1 (0-3)

So for IgA, does that mean the highest they test for is 10?

First off your body can tell you more than the blood tests can. There are false negatives in both blood and biopsy so go by how you feel off of gluten and how you react when you add it back in. Also if you were gluten free or gluten light when the tests were done that will insure a false negative. It also does not appear they did a total IGA on you. If you are IGA deficient the tests are worthless. If you feel better gluten free then stay gluten free, you don't need a doctors permission. There are also times when after being gluten free and having all your medical issues resolve doctors will give a diagnosis based on your response to the diet.
