Got the result today, and it is indeed the IgG only, and it is "negative" with a result of: <10.0 Units
I have sent a message to my doctor requesting that she at least also order the TTG IGA test.
However, I'm assuming that this result does at least significantly lower the likelihood that I have celiac?
This is all just a shot in the dark anyhow... but after 8 years of unsatisfactorily diagnosed mystery joint pain, I don't want to only half-explore an option and then abandon it without a reasonably definitive result.
It sounds like you were not given the full celiac panel.
The full celiac panel includes:
You have to be eating gluten daily for 12 weeks before the blood test. A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis.
Yep, dang just realized I had a $10 off code in my email for the coffee you could have used. Yeah I love the coffees, some are odd. Most dessert ones require you to sweeten to bring it out, some you only taste cold. They are fun to play with and I love how they give me enjoyment when it comes to food.
