Test Results Normal So Far

My blood tests results are slowly trickling in and so far they are all normal.  I know 4 tests were being run but am not sure which one I am still waiting for.  I don't think I want to pursue further testing....just would like to go gluten free and get on with my life.  My brother is severely gluten intolerant (never tested) so at least I won't be the only one.

 

Deaminated Gliadin AB IGG   2      Range 0-19

Deaminated Glaidin AB IGA   3      Range 0-19

Total IGA                              159     Range 68-378

It's hard to wait for the results, isn't it? I remember having a hard time not thinking about it.

 

Best wishes with the gluten-free diet. I hope you feel better quickly.

Is there even another test on the panel that would show up positive if the deaminated gliadin tests were negative?

There is still the tTG IgA (doctors' most used test) and tTG IgG, the EMA IgA (very specific but not positive until there is extensive damage), and there are the old AGA IgA and AGA IgG tests.

As far as I know, the DGP tests are one of the best ones for picking up early intestinal damage. You might be non-celiac gluten intolerant (NCGI) in which case you will not have the intestinal damage but every other unpleasant celiac symptom could apply... Thereisjustno blood test to diagnose it yet. :(

It is possible that your celiac disease is serologically negative but you could have a positive endoscopic biopsy. It is not common but it happens. I think it is more likely that you are NCGI, simply because it is 6-30 times more common than celiac disease is...and probably that much harder to diagnose.

I hope you'll go gluten-free for at least a few months in order to determine if it is NCGI. Good luck in whatever you decide.

    • Thanks for the response, all helpful. Here is the ingredients for the Claritin reditabs:  anhydrous citric acid, gelatin, mannitol, and mint flavor. And here is the ingredients for the nasal spray: An aqueous suspension containing the active ingredient fluticasone propionate USP, and the inactive ingredients 0.02% w/w microcrystalline cellulose and carboxymethylcellulose sodium, dextros, 0.02% w/w benzalkonium chloride, polysorbate 80, and 0.25% w/w phenylethyl alcohol, and has a pH between 5 and 7. Does anyone see anything suspicious I am still new at looking up unusual hidden gluten sources.
    • Hi Spencer88- just wanted to update you on the splinter hemorrhages. I went to my GI doctor and he ran a bunch of bloodwork. I didn't actually get the bloodwork done for a few weeks as I wanted to go back to consistently taking my B-12, D3, K, and multi.(Solgar VM-75)  When I did get the bloodwork done, all the numbers came back fine. Vitamin C is water soluble so harder to test for than A,D,E, and K but I thought A,D,E, & K would serve as an indication of how my body was absorbing. Splinter hemorrhages have grown out on my one toe and seem to be growing out on my other foot as well. Today, I think one may be starting on another toe, so am increasing my clementines to 3 a day again and seeing what happens. (I had gone down to one a day). This seems so non- scientific, but I am giving it a shot. My GI also wanted me to check with a rheumatologist, but my tests for RA and Lupus all came back fine, so not sure I will be making an appointment. Getting tired of jumping from doctor to doctor. So far have seen General practitioner, GI, Cardiologist, & Dermatologist. We have ruled out a lot, but no answers as to why. Getting tired of hearing the word "idiopathic". How are you doing?
    • :-D I'm hoping the labs will show something, but I'm thinking you're right and I'll just have to go gluten-free if there're no "evidence". My doc seemed willing to ask for a skin biopsy if it flares again, so that may do it if the labs don't. The tricky thing is most of my symptoms are gone since I cut out milk, except the rash crops up every now and then, my scalp never calms down completely, and my hair falls out. Huh, I guess that's still pretty unsatisfactory, lol.  I may just need to cut out the gluten after we get through the testing.
    • Are you now gluten free? Urinary issues are definitely a celiac / NCGS symptom. I used to drink tons of water / other drinks and had to urinate quite frequently when I was eating gluten. Once I stopped this was no longer the case. I still have the urge to urinate though, but far less frequently!
