Testing For Celiace Disease After Blood Transfusion And Biopsy

Recommended Posts

I've been told that my biopsy showed "highly suspicious" of Gluten intolerance, and that my doctor has now ordered a celiac profile blood test to confirm. So my questions are first, i just recieved four units of RBC in a transfusion less than a week ago for four unknown doners. Would the celiac profile test be accurate since I just had the transfusions. also, since they already have the biopsy results will the blood test really show anything? Thanks!

Just curious, did you get a biopsy? If you did, and that is what they told you, you need a copy of that report asap. If you have a positive biopsy then blood tests aren't even really necessary.

My guess is that your transfusion probably won't effect it since it was not whole blood but I am not certain. There are others on here who probably know more.

I think the biopsy results should tell you a lot. Call them up and have them read you the pathology report and then get a copy.

Hi and welcome to the board. That's quite a transfusion. Are you OK now?

Antibodies are in your plasma so I agree with researchmomma that RBC should not affect the celiac test.
