Only Doing The Ttg Test?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My dr has ordered the tTG test but that is the only celiac test he ordered. He also ordered fasting blood glucose, ferritin, CBC, Vitamin B12, TSH, creatinine, sodium, and potassium. Most people seem to get a full panel of celiac blood tests. Will only one celiac test show an accurate result?

If I recall, you said you were in Ontario. OHIP will not pay for the full celiac panel. They may now cover the tTg, but not all that long ago they would not. All the other tests you mention are covered by OHIP. If you have private insurance, they may pay for the tests that OHIP won't. The Canadian Celiac Association is actively lobbying the government on this issue. Ontario is the only province whose provincial plan won't cover a proper celiac test panel.

it's a very basic start to looking at your health- but with the celiac portion being only the TTG, and the thyroid portion only being the TSH... you're very likely to be UNdiagnosed when there could actually be something to diagnose... my Endomysial Antibody (part of a Celiac panel) was my only solid positive... and my TSH didnt go above 5 untill i was 34 or 35 years old- when my thyroid had actually started to fail when i was a child.

good luck to you and continue to research especially on here... know your ranges because the doctors rarely do...
