Help With Test Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I was diagnosed with celiac disease two weeks ago after an endoscopy. I am am gluten free now and have had some positive results. Also being treated for H.Pylori with a host of medications that make me feel sick, so hopefully when I am done with those later this week I will feel even better.

I was wondering if anyone can help me determine if the blood testing below is indicative of the severity of my celiac disease. I am 40, M/W in generally good health. I found out about my celiac disease after ending up in the ER twice within 6 months for colitis related pain and dehydration. After a year of different tests I finally figured it out. Some minor GI issues and moderate joint pain (which has decreased significantly since going gluten-free). I would love to figure out when my celiac disease kicked in and how much damage has been done. I have relatively minor symptoms compared to what I have read about from people posting on this board.

Thank you to all that post on this site, I am still getting used to the idea of a gluten-free lifestyle, but the information shared on this site has been invaluable.

Dave

ANTIBODY SCREEN (IGA) WITH REFLEX TO TITER / Reticulocyte count

HLA TYPING FOR CELIAC DISEASE:

Description Result Units Range Flags

HLA-DQ2 (DQA1*05/DQB1*02) Positive

HLA-DQ8 (DQA1*03/DQB1*0302) Negative

HLA-DQA1* 01

HLA-DQA1* 05

HLA-DQB1* 0201

HLA-DQB1* 0501

INTERPRETATION see note

RESULTS REVIEWED BY: see note

INTERPRETATION: The patient has one of the HLA-DQ variants associated

with celiac disease.

More than 97% of celiac patients carry either

HLA-DQ2(DQA1*05/DQB1*02) or HLA-DQ8(DQA1*03/DQB1*0302)

or both. However, 39% of the general U.S. population

carry these HLA-DQ variants, as a consequence, the

presence of HLA-DQ2 or DQ8 or both variants is not per

se diagnostic of celiac disease.
