Iga Test High

I had some blood test results that no doctor had gone over yet (and I did not even know what I was being tested for) transferred to my new doctor. I asked her about being off gluten and whether I could be tested to make sure. She looked through my blood tests and found I was already tested, she said my IGA was VERY high and I then indeed was gluten intolerant.

Does IGA only correlate with gluten? Or dairy as well?

Or it may have been IgG, I cannot remember (either way she said it was a confirmation)

For the tests (I dummo if IGG or IGA) they look for antibodies to a varity of foods or allergens. It sounds like you were for sure tested for gluten. Often they run atleast 10 other foods with it.

TTG IgA usually correlates to celiac but it can indicate other autoimmune diseases like diabetes, autoimmune hepatitis, and thyroid issues. A positive ttg IGA is usually from celiac disease though. I don't beilieve it correlates to a dairy problem, but celiacs are often lactose intolerant.

When I was tested for celiac, they did not test for other food sensitivities or allergens (allergies are unrelated to celiac... as far as we know).

Good luck with the doctor. :)
