New And Need Help With Tests

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 year old that is having a lot of problems. The lab results are as followed:

DGP IgG 14 EU/mL (ref <4.9 EU/mL)

DGP IgA .7 EU/mL (ref <6.1 EU/ML)

Anti Human Tissue TTG IgA Elisa 0.3 U/mL (ref <10.3 U/mL)

Anti-Endomysial IgA IFA (EMA IgA) Negative

Total Serum IgA by Nephelometry Total IgA 89 mg/dl (ref 41-395 mg/dl)

How likely is it that she would have celiac if only the IgG DGP is positive and the others negative?

Also, is it more likely to be allergy rather than autoimmune if only IgG is positive?

Any advice/ideas are appreciated

Also, biopsy is scheduled for late next week.

Welcome to the board. The DGP is the newest and most specific test for celiac. If it is positive she needs the diet. Don't start until after she has an endo. Then on the day that is done start her on the diet. You don't have to wait for the biopsy results.

Read as much as you can here and ask any questions you need to. You also should now get all first degree family members screened even if they don't seem to have symptoms.
