  1. Wow this is me! I did two biocard tests and both came back positive. I had blood work done and got the negative results yesterday. Only one test was completed, Anti Transglutaminase and it was negative. I'm up in Edmonton. Keep me updated if you can on your results
  2. Confusing Results

    Thank you so much for replying. I had to force myself to go to the Doctor to get the current results. I hate how they look at you in disbelief when you tell them how your feeling. I'll have to gain the courage again to ask for the rest of these tests. The Biocard tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase (anti-tTg) IgA Antibodies. Is this the same as the Anti- transglutaminase IgA that I just had done??? I was thinking my ferritin was low. Funny how he never caught that even though I did tell him I was anemic before Thanks for all your help. It is greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if you can help set my mind straight! When my oldest was only 2 her pediatrician was determined she was celiac. She went through blood work and it was negative. She was a failure to thrive etc. She's 8 now and we decided to buy the Biocard for testing. She didn't want to do it by herself so we got two. One for her ... one for me. Hers turned out Negative, mine turned out a very light positive. Tested myself again and it still came positive. Yes I've had symptoms since I was around 19 but never thought celiac. Some of them include C, D, belly pains, anemic, exhausted, extreme migraines, hair loss and recently tingly pinky finger and nausea. Doctor scheduled blood work for iron, ATTG Anti-transglutaminase IgA etc and I got results today which is confusing. ATTG <1.0 (<7 negative) Ferritin 16 (12-300) Doctor said my test results were fine. There was nothing wrong with me. I'm confused how my Anti-transglutaminase IgA can be so low but I still get two positives on the Biocard test. Has this happened to anyone else? I'm so confused
