What Does This All Mean?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just picked up the lab results for my five year old son. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004 and have been watching my son carefully. He was diagnosed with vitiligo last month and we were told of a strong connection between vitilito and celiac disease. I immediately took him in for a celiac panel. Now I have the results and don't have a clue what they mean. Can anyone help me?

IGA: 132 H (Reference 17 - 93 mg/dl)

Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA: 4 (reference 0 - 19 units with 19 units or less....negative, 20 -30 unit....weak positive, and 31 units or great......moderate to strong positive)

Seems like 4 means negative...correct? But what does the 132H mean? Why is that number above the range? Does that mean anything?

Hopefully someone can help. His pediatrician was no help at all. Thanks!

His total IgA is high, which is not really any particular concern. The celiac test is negative.
