  1. Thank you! That does help. I was just confused about the “negative” under the EMA Titer when my level says “1:40 high”. Any insight there? Just wondering if it’s further confirming or denying? I first thought confirming.

  3. I was positive for EMA and also highly positive in Gliadin and tissue Transglutaminase. After testing positive for the the EMA, they came back with this and I don’t exactly understand. Could someone help??? EMA Titer, S (IgA) Test Result Reference Value ---------------------------------------------------------------------- EMA Titer, S 1:40 High Negative A positive serum IgA endomysial antibody indicates the presence of gluten sensitivity, as is seen in individuals with celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis and other gluten-sensitive disorders. Correlation with the clinical presentation and consideration for other diagnostic tests for gluten sensitivity and gluten sensitive enteropathy is recommended.
  4. I am symptomatic, yes. Pretty much everything except weight loss!
  5. My allergist did suggest I cut out gluten right away, but I’ll call the GI tomorrow and discuss that. Thank you!
  6. The Dr said via phone that it is likely I have celiac. I received more numbers today. Do these show a definitive positive? I think they are awaiting one more celiac result. I do see a GI in a couple weeks. See below: Gliadin igA 63.9 with standard range <15 Gliadin igG 177.4 with standard range <15 Tissue Transglutaminase iga 208.3 with standard range <15 Tissue Transglutaminase igg 40.0 with standard range <15 Immuniglobin A 125 with reference range 70-100
