Help With Analysis Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In my country celiac disease is not so known and doctors dont know to much about that disease.

This is my analysis results:

negative anti gliadin IgA and very high positive IgG

positive Tissue Transglutaminase IgG

Can anyone tell me is that good or bad ?

On analysis before this everything where positive, so any progress since then?

Thanks.

Without knowing the actual numbers on your tests it is hard to tell if you are making any progress. Also, how long ago was your first round of testing. If your numbers are not dropping at all you are not making any progress, although interesting that the IgA was now negative. You could be a low IgA producer - you don't mention if total IgA was run.

Here are my latest results:

date of analysis: Jul 5

Anti gliadin IgA :1.21 U/ml

Anti Gliadin IgG : 22.76 U/ml

Tissue Transglutaminase IgG: 3.56 U/ml

My first results:

date of analysis:March 26

Anti gliadin IgA :7.78 U/ml

Anti Gliadin IgG : 39.59 U/ml

Tissue Transglutaminase IgG: 3.39 U/ml

After these first results, gastroscopy results confirmed that I have celiac disease. I started with gluten-free diet from 27 April. Do these results show progress according to my diet?

I'm not an expert, but they look like they are coming down. It can take longer than 2 months for them to go back to normal.

It is normal to do this kind of check after six months and a year. People heal at different rates and a three-month check doesn't really mean a lot. Many of us have barely begun to heal at that point.

Hi, at 50 yrs old I just got diagnosed after 45 yrs of symptoms. So I was happy to at least get the diagnosis. I was tested in Oct 2012 while still eating some gluten.

My IgA was 474

I have been gluten free for 3 months. Have been also drinking an  intestinal healing powder for celiacs and also taking lots of Bio K liquid probiotics as I also have a candida issue on top of the celiacs.

Other than the celiacs and candida, I am a health nut except for my sweet tooth. I juice,eat sardines,taking vitamin,E,A,D and zinc.The rashes (chicken pox like)  that have ravaged  my scalp and buttocks for 35 years are both almost gone after going gluten free the last three months so imagine my horror to see this result on Mondays IgA test on my celiacs panel.

My IgA  is now 519 !!!!! should I be dead ? I see everyone else with numbers below 130. and I'm getting scared. I do believe my current Dr is a moron though. she knows very little about eliacs and look s at me like she thinks I am lying about all the symptoms I have had. I want a new Dr in the Denver area. I saw on this site there was a Celiacs Dr nearby so Halleluyah !!! Thanks for posting that !

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
