Help Interpreting Results

Recommended Posts

Here are the results I got today from the Dr.

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 31 High

Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IfG 16 Negative

t-Transluaminase (tTG) IgA 4 High

t-Translutaminase (tTG) IgG 5 Negative

Endomysial Antibody IgA

Immunoglobin A, Qn, Serum 167 Negative

Positive for DQ2 and homozygous for DQB1*02.

Please help me figure out what these means! I have had conversations with my Dr. before and they e-mailed me the results and told me to stay off gluten.

Simply put welcome to the gluten-free family. You are in the right place to learn what you have to do to heal and keep safe. Ask any questions you need to ask. You should also advise all your first degree relatives to be screened for celiac.

You have a positive blood test for celiac and a positive gene test predisposing to celiac. Welcome, you belong to our family :) Unless you have other gluten eaters in your household, toss everything that has gluten in it. If you can't do that, organize separate shelves for your gluten free food in pantry and fridge, get your own specially marked jars/tubs of spread, nut butter, etc (to prevent cross-contamination) and get reading as much as you can about the gluten free diet. There is oodles of information on this board on how to implement the diet, lists of foods that are gluten free, and of foods which contain gluten where you might not expect it. Make yourself at home! Don't rush out and buy gluten-free specialty products - ease into the diet by eating naturally gluten free whole foods, meat, fish, rice, veggies, fruits, nuts, etc. That way you won't go into overload on your first supermarket expedition - and it will be easier on your intestinal tract too :)

Thank you so much for the information. I am surprised that my Dr. didn't even call. I actually was doing the testing for my 3 year old (for the genetic component, but I am not surprised that I have it as well. I have had health issues my whole life and have toyed with a gluten free diet for the last year because of my daughter. I think I am just overwhelmed that I actually got a positive test since I have met a few people with Celiac that couldn't get a positive test. So crazy that 26 years of issues is summed up to one problem!
