  1. I was hoping that posting this in this forum topic would be more helpful as I did not receive a response under the pre-diagnosis topic. Below are my results from my celiac blood test. The report says that the results do not support a diagnosis of celiac disease. I am wondering if I could be borderline, or possibly have a sensitivity to gluten or something similar. I had genetics testing through 23 and Me and I do have the gene that is associated with celiac. I also have a gene that is associated with a significant risk of being IgA deficient, which I have heard can cause false negatives. Please let me know what you think. Thanks! Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Antibody, IgG (DGP IgG) Value: .5 EU/ml Reference Range: <1.3 EU/ml Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Antibody, IgA (DGP IgA) Value: 1.4 EU/ml Reference Range: <2.9 EU/ml Anti-Human Tissue Transglutaminase IgA ELISA (TTG IgA) Value: .8 EU/ml Reference Range: <10.3 EU/ml Anti-endomysial IgA IFA (EMA IgA) Negative Total Serum IgA by Nephelometry (Total IgA) Value: 124 mg/dl Reference Range: 44 - 441 mg/dl
  2. As a follow up, has anyone had negative blood work, but a positive biopsy?

  4. Thanks for your help! I do not have the results. I actually called my doctor to get all of my medical records and they failed to send me the celiac test results. I am very curious to see what exactly they tested for and the results. My understanding is that you can be borderline and they may read your test as being negative, but you may actually have it. I have been eating gluten free and it has definitely helped!
  5. I have been having stomach pains in my upper abdomen, feelings of fullness that sometimes lead to vomiting, distention, and headaches. I have been tested for celiac, lactose intolerance, gallbladder disease, etc... Everything has come back negative. My question is whether anyone thinks I could have had a false negative test for celiac. I recently had a genetics test done. It showed that I am three times more likely than average to have celiac. It also showed that I have a gene that is related to a significantly higher risk of having an Iga deficiency, which can sometimes cause a false negative. Also, I generally feel better when I am not eating wheat products. Is this something I should tell my doctor? Could I have celiac disease even though my blood test was negative? Thanks!
