  1. I was still eating gluten, although I was going through a phase with only sporadic symptoms (once or twice a week).
  2. Hi all. I posted before, but wanted a few more opinions in regards to my symptoms and blood test results. I have been having on going digestive symptoms such as constant nausea, diarrhea and loose stools, and just a general feeling of being unwell. I developed these symptoms over a year ago. Sometimes my symptoms come and go, lasting 4 or 5 days, and other times I may only feel unwell 2 or 3 times a month. Here is one blood test result below: Component Your result Standard range Units TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.89 < 0.90 - Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 1.53 < 0.90 - Index Since these tests, my GI dr ordered a full celiac panel as well as a genetic blood test. My celiac panel results were all in the normal range, including my Ttg IgG and IgA (my IgA was positive above only a month prior). I would post my ranges for the full celiac panel, but unfortunately misplaced the paper. My genetic test determined I carry the DQ-8 gene, and signaled I have only a moderate probability of developing Celiac. I am twice as likely to develop it. Just curious, I know Ttg IgA is not specific for Celiacs like some of the other tests found on the full celiac panel, but why did I have a high positive result (ruling out I probably don't have crones or any other diseases going)? And then why was the result negative only a month later on the full celiac panel? It's just confusing. Have there been any other celaics on this board diagnosed as having celiac disease and only carry the DQ-8 gene?
  3. Thank you for the reply. So I am just trying to comprehend everything, and I am sorry if my understanding is unclear. Would my positive blood results not necessarily hold weight then, since my Dr did not run the complete panel? I have read about false negatives, but not much about false positives.
  4. Hello all. Just learning about celiac disease after a blood test came back positive. Can anyone help me interpret my results? Below I have included my index results and range: TTG tTG Ab, IgG Results: 0.89Index range < 0.90 tTG Ab, IgA Results: 1.53Index range <0.90 What is the likelihood I am positive for celiac disease with one result being positive (ttg IgA) and the other result negative (ttg IgG). Thank you in advanced for any insight, JB
