Low Total Salivary And Low Antigliaden What Does It Mean?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm new to all of this, but does anyone know what it means if a persons total salivary Iga is <5 and the Antigliaden is 4? One Dr. said to figure it out because the total was so low, you have to multiply the Iga by at least 5 to bring it up to low normal and then multiply the antigliaden by that same number which would make it 20. Another Dr. said the antigliaden was in the normal range. I would love any insight anyone might have. Thanks!!

Two strikes. Maybe you can get a third wrong answer from another doctor. :lol: Low total means you simply can't interpret the anti-gliadin results at all. There is no magic correction factor. The test simply doesn't work right because there is too little IgA.
