Test Results Questions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago. I just received follow-up testing and my TTG IGG, IGA and DGP IGG were negative; however, my DGP IGA was positive (61). From what my doctor explained and from what I have read, I was exposed to gluten. My doctor said it would have to be a continual exposure, not one time. As for continued exposure, I have no idea what I could be consuming with gluten. For a one time exposure, I may have eaten something with gluten (cross contaminated) 2 days prior to my test. Does anyone know if that could affect my results?

I have minimal symptoms when glutened so it's hard for me to know when I've accidentally ingested it. I'm very careful but I do eat out so could occassionally be getting cc.

I have researched and researched but am having a hard time finding answers. I'd love any feedback.

Thanks!

I read somewhere that DGP is the first antibody to become positive in response to gluten, so it would make sense that it was elevated if you had been glutened 2 days prior, but I'm not sure it would be that elevated. The most likely scenerio is you are getting cc'd more often than you think! :(

Now if I could just find where I read that.... :unsure:....there is not much info available on the DGP test, is there?

Do you live in a gluten free household? Do you have a gluten free partner? If the answer to either of these questions is no, there is a strong possibility of cross-contamination issues, especially if your partner does not brush teeth before kissing.
