Mother And Aunt Have Positive Aga Iga But Negative Igg

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just earlier today, we found out that my mother and aunt had positive AGA IgA gliadin antibodies but negative IgG gliadin antibodies. This apparently is a very unusual reading but their stools have often been white in recent times. The doctor really wasn't sure what this meant but about once a month they get massive stomach cramps that make them pass out and they're fine the rest of the time.

For my mother, IgA was 50 but IgG was 6

How likely are they to be celiac? The tTG and DGP tests are still being processed. Both are positive for HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 genes.

When I found out I had celiac I was sicker than this and was positive for both IgA and IgG up around 130.

I have never seen any requirement for the antigliadin IgG for celiac

Just wait til the proper celiac tests come in, the ttg and DGP

tTG IgA and DGP IgA and IgG are all within normal range.

Did they have a total IGA done? If they are IGA deficient the IGA tests will be a false negative for sure.

Yes total IgA is normal. It was in the middle (I can't remember what number) of the range.

They were AGA IgG negative. This was all by a blood test.
