Can Anyone Explain These Test Results For Me?

I got my blood work results in and I have no idea what any of it means.



ANTIBODY, IGA Value Explanation of Test Results

< 5 Negative

5 - 8 Equivocal

> 8 Positive

IMMUNOGLOBULIN A 282 81-463 mg/dl

I'm assuming it's negative. I thought there was another test, but I guess not. Did I miss one? I ordered what was called the celiac panel, but two tests doesn't seem right.

Your assumptions were correct. While technically that is the only reliable test for celiac disease, it tells nothing of any gluten intolerance. The tests you're missing are IgA/IgG-Gliadin. Luckily with the Total IgA result you received it means that the IgA tests are decently valid, ie. your body is not deficient in IgA production.
