Iga Deficiency

What exactly is IGA deficiency? Does that mean your levels are low, or that you don't have any? What causes this? I have heard this mentioned a lot.

IgA deficiency results in your levels being lower than the actually would be. This is important because while a low IgA might make you think a test to be negative for celiac, if you have IgA deficiency, then that might be what keeps it in the normal range--and in fact, you might actually HAVE celiac.

Would Iga deficiency give false low readings for the other tests?(Igg,tTg orEma?)

No...just the IgA. But an elevated IgA is also relatively common, which is why the IgA alone cannot diagnose...you also need the IgG and the EMA

Yep you need the full panel with the IgG , tTG, EMA, and IgA...IgA deficiency would not effect all of them.
