  1. Test Results

    Never smoked a day in my life. My ortho dr wants me to go to a neuro. So at this point I am not finished with testing. Thank you for your response.
  2. Test Results

    Hi, I just wanted to add some insight to my question on the test results. I am 58 experiencing stress fractors to the foot without any extra activity. I have osteoporosis and the thought process of the doctors is that I have another cause besides age for the osteoporosis. The foot is not healing after 11 weeks in a boot. Ortho sent me to Endo. Endo did blood test. Hormones normal and received the below results on Celiac. I have had osteoarthritis since 21, Was diagnosised at 29 as being allergic to wheat, symptom was I lost my voice after having my first child. Had my second at 32 and magic I could eat wheat again and not lose my voice. Last year I was tested autoimmune because of lung issues; MAC and bronchiaestasis. IGA was high then but no further testing. I do not have digestion issues except lactose intolerant. I do have low values on vitamin D. I do not go back to Endo until 2 weeks from now. My sister is fighting her own issues which is pointing to autoimmune but drs. have figured her out yet. My mom as MS and her mom died of ALS, Dad's side had Lupus. Any thoughts?
  3. What does this result mean exactly? Endomysial Abs, IgA Negative Negative Transglutaminase IgA <2 U/mL 0 - 3 U/mL Negative 0 - 3 Weak Positive 4 - 10 Positive >10 Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr- ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99% specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy. Immunoglobulin A (IgA) 518 mg/dL 87 - 352 mg/dL
