Noob here.

6 year old daughter has had tummy issues since birth (mucous/bloody stool) Off dairy/soy since then.

2011 tests

Immunoglobulin - 142

IBD test -

"Atypical ANCA"

Cerevisiae Ab, IgA 2.1

Cerevisiae Ab, IgG 2.9

Do these low numbers mean anything? Ranges says below 20 is negative..?

more testing in 2012

the prometheus test shows the H.L.A. DQ8 gene

We are now off gluten, but I see that the DQ8 is only in 5% of Celiac patients..?

Any help is appreciated!

Regina

I cant edit my OP but here is a more detailed post, hope this helps

My 6 year old was tested recently.

Neutriphil <1.20 (range <1.20)

Atypical ANCA (Atypical ANCA are found in 50-70% of UC patients)

Cerevisiae Ab, IgA 2.1 (range 0.0-24.9)

Cerevisiae Ab, IgI 2.9 (range 0.0-24.9)

It simply says status - "F". I assume that means negative..?

Do the low numbers mean anything, should they be 0.0?

Also, there is a genetics test that shows a STAT3 mutation detected..?

She also has a gene DQ8 that is in 5% of Celiac patients (we're off dairy/soy/gluten).

the blood tests won't be accurate if she's off gluten. Furthermore, it doesn't look like she had the full celiac panal.

As for the genetic testing goes, It can be an indicator of the disease if it is likely.

Did your daughter ever have any tests from the celiac panel?

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG

Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA

Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA

Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG

Total Serum IgA

It looks like they did run the Total Serum IgA (which is also known as Immunoglobulin) but I don't see any of the other tests mentioned?

Ditto what mushroom said; I'm not familiar with those tests either.

To me, it looks like the doc was screening your daughter for ulcerative colitis, and the "ANCA" test result was abnormal (with a note saying 50-70% of patients with ulcerative colitis have abnormal ANCA values). But I'm not entirely sure her result was abnormal, or if they just put that note on the lab results report.

I did a quick Google search, and it looks as though that test is only a first screening step for UC, so the abnormal result can not be used alone to diagnose UC.

Did they say they were going to be testing for celiac as well?

    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.            
    • I think this site is a far better source of info and support than any of the Facebook groups I've seen. Its certainly been a great help to me. I found that too much web surfing on some other sites including Facebook just made things more difficult, there are either sites pushing commercial solutions with little real scientific grounding or there are often well meaning people with particular axes to grind offering dubious advice.  I stopped visiting those sites finally as they just added to the climate of fear and anxiety around diet and health. If your journey is any way like mine, you'll find that things get much better, both in terms of adapting to the diet and also in your general health and well being. The first weeks are hard but as you learn to read labels, know which are your safe products and make sure you are completely gluten free then your body will do the rest.  
    • Looks like this soup does contain gluten: https://www.chilis.com/docs/Chilis-Allergen-Generic.pdf The page that lists gluten free options does not show the enchilada soup as being gluten free (scroll down a few pages).  
    • Okay, you ordered it online.  What does the ingredient label say?  I did not even know they made a canned or packaged soup?  Or did you order online and picked it up at the restaurant?   Maybe there is no gluten at all.  Maybe they only use masa flour (corn) as the soup base.  
    • I ordered it online and it was an accident. The store is now closed and the internet is not offering any solutions. The customer service helpline is useless.
