Blood Test Results

My blood tests is as follows:

IgA 4

IgG 27

They also did an ANA which was Negative.

My TSH is 7.928

She questioned me about my symptoms, and she told me that my thyroid could be to blame for them. I told her I felt this way when my thyroid is normal. I wasn't going to let them get away with this stuff with me again, especially since I have a "weak positive" IgG, and that was after being gluten-free for 2 months, and then going on gluten for the test again. She gave me the "we can't be for sure with out the endoscope" thing, which I realize. But, I can't afford an endoscope right now. Since I feel better not eating gluten she said I can just assume I have it then. I was glad she said that.

Anyone have an opinion on this?

I am now 47 and I had had a horrible itchy rash for more than 7 years....no doc could figure it out. I have also had bowel trouble since 3rd grade! I was recently diagnosed with Dercum's disease and while on a Dercum's message board someone posted a link to celiac.com. I went to the site and felt like I was reading about myself...especially when I found out about the rash that can occur. I then went to my doc...and she said that rather than do the biopsy (since I am a single mom and usually broke!) to just go gluten-free and see what happens. I went gluten-free the first week of July this past summer...and my rash is now gone!! After 7 years....amazing. I can still see the 'outline' of where it was...but basically it is gone!

my only positive was a weak anti-reticulin IgG positive. you could be IgA deficient, depending on which IgA that was... and since you'd been gluten-free for so long, who knows!

I figured out that I am gluten intolerant because my Thyroid was messed up. So I went gluten-free to and have not yet started Thyroid Replacment Therapy in hopes that the gluten-free diet will allow my Thyroid to reregulate itself.

If you still have an elevated IgG after being gluten-free for 2 months, I'd say you have a definite gluten intolerance. If you react poorly to gluten ingestion and you feel good on a gluten-free diet, then I don't think you need to look any further. Get on a gluten-free diet and live healthily ever after!

    • Nov 18, 2015 >.< yeah it was older, Checked some newer testing others have done and found the more recent ones under 5ppm.....so perhaps they got their act together. I still am that old dog recalling being hit and growling at them about it.
    • Yes, I've seen these and believe that these were taken during the time period that GM had an issue with a contaminated truck, and this caused them to issue a recall on batches made at a plant. If I am correct about this, that was years ago, and they have corrected that issue. What is the link for this? What time period were these tests done?  I am fairly certain you are showing old data here, that is old news that was dealt with by GM...but please share if you know.
    • Granbia is wholesale only, GFHarvest you can order and they ship anywhere sales under http://www.glutenfreeoats.com/gluten-free-oatmeal/

      Sorry to be the jumpy rabbit, but once bitten twice shy, I recall when they first came out with gluten-free cheerios....yeah it was worse back then and that pain and trickery will not be forgiven.
    • Oh, and how much do Granbia and GFHarvest cost, and how available are these cereals? 
    • It is not up to General Mills to test every single box to prove they are safe...has anyone found such a hot spot yet? Please post it here. 5-10 ppm is gluten-free, even by Canadian standards. Evidence please...making such a statement without any facts isn't helpful here.  I am happy to discuss this, but please don't make claims you can't back up. GM is making a claim that their cereals are gluten-free and safe for celiacs, so far I've not seen any evidence otherwise, but am considering offering a reward for such evidence.
