Need Help Re: Blood Work Results

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have extensive family history of celiac - both sisters and their children, as well as an uncle and cousin. I have been told that I am negative, however i'm not sure that my doctor is familiar enough with celiac to really be sure.

My blood work in 2009: IgA 51mg/dl & Celiac screen transglutinase antibody 6.3 ab/units

My blood work last week: IgA 64 mg/do & Celiac screen transglutinase antibody 8.6 ab/units

I am also 7 weeks pregnant and am concerned for baby - my one sister had a miscarriage due to malnutrition from celiac, which is what led to all of getting tested...

Just looking for some straightforward answers if there are any.

Thanks in advance!

- Tara

Different labs have different reference ranges for these tests, so it would help to interpret if you can post the ranges for those tests.

I have no idea what the normal ranges are...I tried searching on-line, but I couldn't seem to find anything. I will try calling the lab to find out tomorrow.

Thanks!
