Auto-Immune Disorder Testing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently had a lot of blood work done to look for auto-immune disorders including ANA testing (no celiac specific tests were done though). Everything came out normal. If celiac is an auto-immune disorder would my normal test results rule out celiac as a diagnosis?

Not necessarily. Celiac is a sneaky thing- sometimes it just doesn't show up in bloodwork.

You should still get the full panel of celiac bloodwork done- ttg IGA, ttg IGG, total IGA, DGP and EMA

My bloodwork for Celiac was also negative (i.e, normal) but my endoscopy proved that I had Celiac disease, flattening of villi, etc.
