Blood Results: What Does This All Mean?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I just got my results back from the lab. I understand everything but the last part. Can someone tell me if this is a preliminary "negative" result, or does it mean something else? I also have Hashimotos, if that explains anything.

Celiac Disease Comprehensive Result Flag Units Reference

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 7 units 0-19

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgC 2 units 0-19

t-Transblutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 U/mL 0-3

Tissue Transglutaminase (tGG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstrated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99% specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy.

t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG <2 U/mL 0-5

Endomysial Antibody IgA Negative Negative

Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 315 mg/dL 70-400

Thanks all!!

Therese

The last part is the test for the endomysial antibody (a very Celiac specific marker)...you were negative. The second test was for IgA deficiency (immunoglobulin, A, quant). Yours was in the normal range, which just verifies that the other IgA mediated tests are accurate, and not falsely neg due to IgA deficiency.

Hope this helps!
