Are These The Tests I Need For Diagnosis?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My neurologist thinks my small fiber neuropathy is either from Sjogren's (which I have) or from celiac disease. I've been tested for it before (30 yrs ago) but they missed it. I figured it out on my own about 6 yrs ago and have been gluten free ever since.

However, if I am truly a celiac, I will be even MORE VIGILANT than I already am.

These are the tests he ordered:

Transglutaminase IgG

Anti-Gliadin AB

Will these be pretty definitive?? Even if I haven't been eating gluten??

THANKS!!!!

If you are gluten-free already, these tests will probably not be conclusive since they look for the Gliadin reaction! the "gene" test however is not conditional to this. Here is one of the best labs testing currently for Celiac Disease, and they have good notes. This site also explains "testing" as well..good luck

GRRRRR,,,, That's what I thought. I had been wanting the DNA test. Will a DNA test thru another lab be OK??

thanks!
