  1. Greetings. I'm in the UK and have been tested for Celiac for the second time recently. I saw my GP yesterday and was told all the bloods were in order except for my total IgA which was elevated. Now i'm aware that a deficiency in IgA can skew the results of the other tests - is this true of elevated IgA too? Has anyone here been in this kind of situation. I have to say i'm very frightened - searching for "elevated IgA" turns up some problems, including the C word. I'm 35 and don't want to die. I have been scoped both ways - up twice in 2 years, down once in same time period and all was fine.
