The celiac tests are:
And....Immunogobulin A (IgA). This test is used only as a control test when checking for celiac disease. If your body is not producing enough IgA, the IgA celiac tests are invalid or will not work. You would also have a immune deficiency issues too. But that is a separate issue.
The previous link I gave you spells out the test names which are long! 😆
Guys, thanks so much for taking time out of your day to reply to me. I'm going to ask my doc for the test, she's super and I'm sure she will go for it. This whole thing has sure taken it's toll on me both mentally and physically the last couple of months... to be honest, I don't care if I have it or not, I just want to know what's going on
Dziekuje bardzo for that information,, CyclingLady!
And you are correct, at least in my case --- I have been EXTREMELY reluctant to eat out in restaurants since going gluten free last year, and have only done so a small handful of times, under very strict conditions and only after talking to both the serving staff and the chefs/cooks at some length. Now, on the Fasano Diet, it is simply not an option.
Honestly, I do not understand this recent mania for eating out ALL the time! Not only is it less healthy, in general, than preparing one's own food, it is VASTLY more expensive than eating at home as well!. Are all these people I see crowding the infinitude of restaurants nowadays REALLY that rich, to be able to routinely (if not almost daily) afford a $40 or $50 meal, when they could eat as well or better at home for 1/5 or 1/10 the price? I just don't get it. It seems to me to be just another reflection of how the average person has been becoming less and less self-reliant, and more and more dependent on systems fundamentally outside of their own personal control.
Thanks! I didn’t realize that the IGA test could be just a specific portion of your total IGA.
I looked at at my test results and it says with assessment of total IGA. My follow up appointment is on Thursday, I can ask my doctor for more information when I see her.
this is a pretty old thread, so this member may not respond. Your child should see a doctor. You could ask for celiac disease testing or have him elvaluted for something like EoE.
