Enterolab And Iga Deficiency

Hi All,

I would like my son to be tested by enterolab but his blood tests revealed he is IgA deficient. Will the tests done at enterolab show results or will this be a problem? I tried to email them but they don't make it easy.

Thanks I appreciate any help,

Lisa

I suggest e-mailing Dr. Fine and asking him directly if this would affect the test results.

I don't recommend e-mailing the lab, they very rarely answer e-mails, but Dr. Fine usually gets back to you within a day or two. His e-mail can be found online, but you really have to look for it on his websites, so I'll tell you what it is:

Dr. Kenneth Fine kdxfine@yahoo.com

Have you tried the conventional testing yet? If you find a good doctor who is skilled at treating Celiac Disease, they should be able to handle the IgA deficiency when seeking a diagnosis. He would probably need an intestinal biopsy though.

I actually think the Enterolab tests are easier and better. My entire family tested either negative or inconclusive on almost all the conventional tests, and I opted out of the biopsy for my young children.

God bless,

Mariann

Hi Mariann,

My son had a biopsy 7/26 and it was negative so I thought we should give this a try. I will email Dr. Fine right now and hope for the best.

Thanks so much for your help,

Lisa
