Thanks so much everyone! I keep nodding my head with everything you say! His bloods show he is Vit D deficient, low normal in calcium, he also has ‘mild neutropenia’. So all the signs from the reading here seem to point that way, his specialist didn’t seem convinced though. 🤷♀️ I’ll be better informed and know the questions to ask now when I see them next, so thanks again, it’s much appreciated.
Thanks GFinDC, You explained that well, I’ve been trying to get my head around it, all the abbreviations used throughout the literature just confuses me more! So one or both positive needs further investigation? Is one type of antibody ‘superior’ than the other when identifying celiac disease? And why wouldn’t both be positive? Thanks again for your time!
My 11 year old has been having his bloods taken due to presentation of various symptoms, lethargy, cramps etc In particular, Transglutaminase-IgA (tTG-IgA) AND deamidated gliadin peptide-IgG (DGP-IgG) antibody tests The first tTG-IGA result recorded 0 The first DGP-IgG result was positive At this point we we were referred to the Gastro, whilst we waited 4 weeks for that appointment we were told to try and eat as much gluten as possible. When we saw the specialist they wanted a second blood test, plus the gene screen before seeing them again soon. The second tTG-IGA result again recorded 0 (negative) The second DGP-IgG result was a stronger positive then before. We’re currently waiting on the gene test results but any insights much appreciated from those results?
