My daughter had a celiac panel done in 2010. I was told the results were neg. so we left it at that. She has been having API s again so I had them run another panel, new doctor. I don't have the new results back yet but here are the ones from 2010. Can you tell me what you think?

Gliadin Antibody IgA - H 83 normal high Less 20

Gliadin Antibody IgG - 19 normal,high less 20

Tissue Trans AB IgA - H 28 normal high less 20

Tissue Trans AB IgG - 18 normal high less 20

And yes I did bring these results to the new doctor -though her doctor was more consernd about the urinalysis report so she focused on that. They are supposed to be calling me,with an appointment for a GI referral today Also

I had my son tested in 2010, all his results were less than 20 excepts for the Gliadin Antibody IgA which was 27. I will be bring him back to have him rested. He has been having increased stomach pains for the past month. My son also was dx with leukemia at the age of 21, received chemotherapy for 3 years, is now cancer free. My youngest daughter also had leukemia, dx at the age of 3 1/2 , passed away 2007 at the age of 11 due to complication from the bone marrow transplant. My oldest daughter has had a few stomach issues, nothing too bad, will also have her tested. All my labs were normal. We have suspected celiac or crohns with my husband though he has never been tested

The panel was ran on Friday afternoon, I'm not sure how long it takes for results. I will be calling when they open this morning. .

H. Pylori AB Negative

My daughter is also having some kidney issues the last few weeks, currently waiting on repeating an urinalysis. I won't list those labs unless someone here knows something about those results. From the searching I've done this weekend I found that celiac can be linked to kidney disease?

Thank you!

Uhm those results are not negative, two are clearly flagged as "H" for high. Can you post the reference range of the tests? I am assuming the tests are the standard negative under 20, your IgA specific antibody reaction to gluten is high positive, and the tissue transglutaminase is also positive showing there is damage in the intestine. Put that together and you have a damaged intestine due to a negative reaction to gluten. I bet your new results will be much higher, hopefully they tested the deamidated versions this time, let us know the results.

I am just throwing this out there but because those results were obviously positive (especially the gliadin IgA) and your doctor never reported that to you, upon your daughter actually being diagnosed, you could have a malpractice law suit in your hands. Especially if you can link further complications due to being misdiagnosed.

Can you give us the range of the tests? What is considered normal, and whatnot? All labs are a bit different.

Have you brought those test results to her new doctor? Do bring those to that doctors attention. She should have been diagnosed when the tests you posted were run. Yes celiac can impact kidney function (and many other organs) but once she goes gluten free her kidney function can return to normal. I hope you are able to get her diagnosed quickly and do test every other family member as well.

I added the normal range above. I'm not sure if they added the "deamidated" version, not sure what that is?

The deamidated version is more specific to celiac, the older anti-gliadin tests are not very accurate, especially the IgG version. However the IgA is still sensitive to celiac which is what came back high positive.

These tests would be necessary for a more accurate diagnosis:

Deamidated gliadin IgA

Deamidated gliadin IgG

Endomysial Ab

As I said before, your daughters results were strong positive in reaction to gluten and positive to the gut damage test, you are going to need to run the three tests I just posted as well as possibly an endoscopy if it is necessary.

I got the results of my daughters cp panel. I don't have a copy of them yet, nurse said it was negative. She read a few values off to me, the ttIgA was less than 2 , Gliadin IgA was 5 last time was 83. Now she was on flagly and serious for 1 day- would that effect the results at all ?? I'm happy if those are the true results but the results are way different than the ones taken in 2010, something doesn't seem right?

Sorry that should have said steriods not serious, she had 30 mg of steriods in her system and took 2 doses of flagyl , each tablet 500 mg, the day before the blood draw. The little searching I did does show that steriods can show a false neg, but would 30 mg be enough to mess up the results?

Just got off phone with nurse, they have schechduled an appoint for next week with a GI doctor. I did call that doctor and ask about the steriod issues, they want the labs drawn again so I will have that done next monday and hopefully have the results by Thursday. Does anyone see a GI doctor at st Louis children's ?

Steroids in prolonged use can effect the results, I doubt that one time before would but I can't be sure on that. Flagyl would not cause false negatives, if anything it would cause false positives since it is notoriously hard on the small intestine.

I am at a loss at this point, I am not sure what to make of results being so high than dropping, perhaps your daughter is an example of how inaccurate Gliadin AB's are. If your daughter had celiac and was eating gluten there is no reason for the antibodies to drop like that, active disease simply does not do that.

My only suggestion would be to retest using the methods I posted above as well as being off steroids for a week. Also did she get tested for IgA sufficiency? What led you guys to celiac to begin with?

In 2010 she was having constant bad stomach pains, missing lots of school. My husband has had horrible stomach problems all his life. we're always assumed that he had colitis. He has never been tested for it though, stubborn. So they tested her knowing my husband has some thing going on. She has been eating gluten all this time. I don't know what to think with those results. She will be retested next week. So I guess I'll just have to wait and see. thank you for your help.

    • I'm getting married soon (8 days) so we've been thinking about future and children and such. Is there anything I can do to prevent my child from getting celiac? I have it and I'm very sensitive. I was diagnosed at 9 after my dad was. Is there any way for me to keep my children from going through that? 
    • I must say I am very thankfull for all the positive reinforcement I am finding here. It has been a struggle to finally hit the gluten nail on the head.  So many other culprits exist that have similarities to gluten sensitivity. It took over five years, but I finally exhausted all the possibilities.  In a way it is actually a relief. Thank God my wife is very patient. She also has a friend with full blown celiac too, I get advice from her by way of the wife. Also, some of the FB groups I have joined are not  overly friendly to people that are looking for help. But they sure are good places to swap recipes! Too bad I can't cook. 
    • Thanks Pocah. You mentioned an intestinal ulcer. I thought I had developed gastritis, or possibly an ulcer myself. This happened after a very 'beery' weekend a year ago, and the pain never left.But now that I have committed to going gluten free for several weeks, its thankfully going away! 
    • Are you sure he didn't eat pizza or a cookie?  If you weren't there.....  just a thought.  And, is this his usual reaction to gluten?  Do you really know that it is from gluten..... I mean...positive he got some gluten and this happens?  For example - I realized after I ate something that it wasn't what I thought it was.... so I know my reaction from gluten for certain.   The thing is, it just seems extreme for a teeny amount of gluten.  I just don't want you to miss something because you blame it on gluten.  It's a natural thing to blame everything on gluten. I feel this is his reaction to gluten, he needs to learn to recognize that it is irrational and learn to manage it.  If that means he stays in his room with soft music and a punching bag.... no matter what the cause of this episode - you definitely need to talk about it.  Maybe several times.  I know with my boys, you might have to explain what concerns you and maybe a brief why it concerns you ( tho this behavior probably needs no " why "it worries you).   They may need to think about it for a while or give you a partial answer today and discuss more in depth tomorrow.
    • Potato chips are usually gluten-free. If there is a concern, it is in an added flavor. I haven't seen a problem except for some BBQ flavors, and even then rarely. Wheat must be declared on the label in Canada and the USA. Rye and Barley do not need to be declared in the US, but in practice they are not hidden. That leaves dextrose which is a pure sugar and is gluten-free no matter where from what it was derived. Potato chips are very high in salt. The potatoes themselves provide a lot of sugar through carbohydrates. Just saying...
