Positive Biocard Test, Normal Blood Test?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I took a Biocard Celiac test a couple weeks ago and it was positive. Went to my doctor and told him the results so he sent me for blood work and it came back "normal". So I called Biocard and they sent me another test to try and sure enough... same positive result.

What gives?

My doctor only told me my results were normal & never gave me any levels or anything. Any chance I could be slightly positive? From everything I have heard, if you have a positive Biocard test - you are pretty much going to be Celiac. But now I'm not too sure.

I'm confused :unsure:

What blood work did your Dr. do? Maybe he didn't order the right tests. Biocard is a TTG IgA test and it's hard to imagine a false positive twice in a row.

it was a "Celiac Panel". That was all it was listed as. I am in Canada...are they different here?

"Celiac panel" means different things to different doctors. It usually includes TTG-IgA but we've seen doctors do some pretty stupid stuff. Any chance you can find out what they actually tested?

I think I am going to make an appointment to find out for sure. The doc was in a big rush to get me out of there last week so maybe if I ask specifically what they were, they might take a minute to explain.

I dont know why docs in Canada are so hesitant to discuss any results. It's almost like it's a big secret or something.
