Test Results Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I went to a celiac screening clinic to be tested after my brother was diagnosed and just got my results back. i was on a gluten diet when tested. the test they gave was the anti-human tissue transglutaminase IgA ELISA which supposedly has a reference range of <10.3u/ml. My results were 20.5 u/ml which the paper that comes with it suggests is positive. I'm going to take the paperwork to my doctor when i can get an appointment but it will probably be weeks before I can get in. my question is how high is that? is 20 a "low positive" or a super "high positive?" what sort of other result numbers did you guys get?? thanks!

Well positive is generally positive. It's like being a 'little bit pregnant', or 'mostly dead' (though that did work out well for the man in black). :)

My ttG IgA was 92 (<10 was 'normal) and my anti-gliadin IgA was 135 (<10 was 'normal').
