Non-Antibody Blood Tests For Celiac

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was wondering what blood tests are important when celiac is in suspicion. I already know of the antibody tests but I was wondering things like vitamins, red blood cell count etc... What should I have tested now? I have had every other non celiac related antibody test under the sun to make sure there is nothing else going on autoimmune wise and they all were negative.

So far I know of vitamin B12, D, Ferritin, and red blood cell count.

In addition to B12, D and Ferritin:

B1, K, Iron, Copper and Zinc

I'm pretty my doc tests B2 and B6 as well...I'd have to double check those.

Ok great, so B12, B1, K, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Ferritin, Red blood cell count.

What about glucose fasting? I heard hypoglecemia can occur from celiac, does anyone know if that is true? My fasting glucose in august was 3.8 but I was on bactrim which apparently will cause that so I am retesting it after I get rid of the H. Pylori.

I've never had sugar issues. Only abnormal tests were celiac antibodies, nutrients and slightly elevated liver enzymes - abnormal liver numbers were after many years of undx'd celiac.

Like the autoantibody tests, the vitamin tests can be misleading. My autoantibodies were off the chart but my vitamin levels were great; in fact B12 was higher than normal. My only low vit was D and it was still inside of the "normal" range... not bad for a Canadian. LOL
