Opinions On Blood Test Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I recently went in for blood work and all was normal except for tTG IGA, the numbers are below. I am scheduled for an endoscopy on Wednesday but am hoping for some insight before then. I am a terrible waiter and not knowing is a killer.

tTG IGA: 133 (0-19 normal)

IGA: 168 (70-400 normal)

Your thoughts are appreciated!

Welcome to the board! tTG IgA is a test for a kind of autoimmunity that's almost always caused by celiac and yours is quite high. Be sure to give the gluten-free diet a good strict try no matter what the endoscopy results are. Sometimes the celiac damage gets missed because it can be patchy. If you've had a lot of stomach trouble you should feel loads better!
