i just got an endoscopy done and also a full blood panel. i'm waiting to hear back the results. my food allergist found that my gliadin ab (iga) was at 32 with the reference range <11 u/mL. i'm feeling awful. is it safe to say that there is definitely some kind of gluten allergy going on or could this be something else? thanks for any tips before i can get back in to the doc!

Yes that was a postive test for celiac. Since you are done with testing start the diet. You could already have a great deal of relief by the time you go back for the results.

thanks,

also, what exactly is Deam. Gliadin Pep. IgA and IgG? is it the same as what i mentioned previously? my thyroid doctor did a test of these and they were in the normal range. just curious if they are the same thing and if so, why the # would be so different. my Deam IgA was 5 and Deam IgG was 1.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Why would one gliadin antibody IgA be at 32 and the "Deam. Gliadin Pep. IgA" read 5? are they two completely different things?

Two different labs did the testing which were about a month apart. I had my thyroid doc retest while I was giving blood (which was the one that read 5) but she didn't seem to know too much about it and said to take the two results into my gi doc.
