What Test Do I Ask For?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get some blood work done at the community health clinic and I have to know what test to ask for in order to get the test done. Does anyone know what test/s I need to ask for? I'm trying to find out if I have celiac disease. I would like to have a real diagnosis before going gluten free, but if I can't afford the tests then I suppose I will have to self diagnose.

Thanks for any help!!

Some tests to discuss with the doctor:

tTG IgA

EMA IgA

AGA IgA

AGA IgG

total IgA

Newer tests - in place of the less sensitive/less specific AGA based tests are the anti-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) antibody (both IgA and IgG). Not sure if they are able to order this.
