Can Someone Help Me Interpret My Lab Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i just received my lab results and need help figuring out a couple of things -

IGA 13 <10 normal

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1: 0302

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2: 0202

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 3,2 (Subtype 8,2)

i know i've already responded positively to a gluten free diet but these numbers are confusing! thank you so much! :)

Looks like you have the DQ2 and DQ8 genes for Celiac disease and have high antibody levels. I'd say that you have it.

thanks for your help! all of the extra #'s and letters were throwing me off. i think i'm also wanting to be extra sure so there is absolutely no if's ... and's ... or but's about the diagnosis. after almost 14 years of issues (and damage) i am reluctant to believe i finally have an answer but at the same time its hands down a blessing because i can fix this with a dietary change. its a relief to know i don't need a medication or medical treatment to control or heal. what an emotional roller coaster.

:rolleyes:

What IgA test was 13, and which other tests were done? IgA alone is not a celiac test.

Yes, you have one each of the main celiac genes.

the report says anti gliadin iga 13 with 10 being the cut off

and the anti tissue transglutaminase iga says 5 and 10 being the cut off

thanks for the help clearing all this up!
