Hey again 😁
It's a start, but I so wish they'd done the whole panel. Some of us, myself included, test negative to the TTG-IgA. I was positive on the DGP only. I wonder if your insurance will only cover those 2?
Regardless, get them done as soon as you can! Do you have a walk in lab where you live? If so, go tomorrow. Then you'll be a step closer to getting answers.
Good luck and keep us posted!
I totally agree...this board is awesome! The people on here have been there for me through everything and it has helped so much!
I don't think antihistamines would affect the test at all. I take an antihistamine daily as well for horrendous allergies.
