Hello all! I am new to this site and have an endoscopy and biopsy scheduled in two weeks. Unfortunately, my doctor did not explain my blood results to me and I don't have another appointment with him to go over it. He simply said some results were positive and the biopsy is the next step. (He is a Celiac Specialist so although I'm upset he didn't explain more, I'm hoping he is still a capable doctor).
I have a biology degree and an understanding of the basics..but if anyone can give me some insight, I would be grateful. Especially the TTG results. I am soooo stressed about the biopsy, mostly the sedation.
Here are my results:
-IGA serum: 191 (normal)
-IGA AB group: 191 (normal)
-endomysial IGA anibody: POSITIVE titer (high)
-Gliadin (Demidated) AB, IGA: 152.5 (high)
-Gliadin (Demidated) AB, IGG: <20 (normal)
-Transglutaminase IGA : 47 (high)
-Transglutaminase IGG: 8 (high)
I'm so glad I found this website. I don't have much support for this and am glad I can find this support! :)
