Bloodwork Results Are Back--Great News!

Recommended Posts

Many of you listened and consoled me when my 13-year-old daughter was diagnosed in July. At the time, her TTG IgA levels were at 169, which is ridiculously high. I'm so happy to report that today her doctor called with the news that her recent bloodwork showed her TTG levels are now at 6!!!!! I was hoping for anything under 80. Needless to say, this is the best Hanukkah present we could have gotten. Our daughter has worked so hard and it has paid off. Thank you all for your comfort and advice these past few months!

Thank you, all! It's not perfect yet. Her gliadin IgA was 6, down from 135, and her gliadin IgG was 62, down from 140. I'm not sure why the latter number is still so much higher than the other two. Anyone? But the doc said the gliadin tests are less specific than the TTG, so that's the main one they go by. She also said they are not recommending a follow-up biopsy at this point. Feels so good to know our efforts are paying off!
