Hello Everyone, I'm still in a bit of shock from hearing from my GI on Monday that she thinks I probably have Celiac. (My blood tests are below.) She said that it wasn't for sure and scheduled me for an endoscopic biopsy next Wednesday. I've spent yesterday and this morning reading as much as I can about this disease, as it wasn't even on my radar at all! I don't have any stomach or intestinal symptoms that I can tell, although I have several other health issues (massive thyroid issues, extremely low Vitamin D, bladder problems, and quite a bit of problems with mental focus). Here is my question--my doctor didn't want to stay definitvely if I have celiac or not. She had a "let's wait for the endoscopy results" attitude, although she did refer me to a nutritionist and made sure I made an appointment for next week. So, given the results below, is it possible that I don't have celiac? Is the doctor just being doctor-ish by not saying I have it for sure, or is there really a chance that the biopsy could come back negative? I've been trying to figure this out by Googling, but I'm getting more confused. Of course, I can just wait for the results, but it's driving me a little crazy... Since the "IGA,Serum" came back in the normal range, does that mean anything? Thanks for any and all input!!! Dee P.S. - Also, if there are any questions that I should ask the doctor or the nutritionist I'd love to know. I feel like I just don't even know enough to know what to ask yet... P.P.S. - here are the results: ANA SCREEN,IFA Positive ANTI-NUCLEAR AB TITER 1:80 ANA PATTERN Homogeneous Reference Range: <1:40 Negative 1:40-1:80 Low Antibody Level >1:80 Elevated Antibody Level (tTG) AB, IGA 66 Reference Range: <4 No Antibody Detected > OR = 4 Antibody Detected ENDOMYSIAL AB IGA POSITIVE ENDOMYSIAL AB TITER 1:40 Reference Range: <1:5 IGA, SERUM 260 Reference Range: 81-463 mg/dL
Hi, I have stalked around on this forum for a while and finally decided to sign up today and ask all of you seasoned celiacers a question about my lab work. I have had some serious neurological issues, mainly my eyes being very sensitive to light and feeling dizzy, so my neurologist ran a panel of blood work on me and besides a low Vit. D, a slight titer of dsDNA which is so low considered neg. only one came back positive. This was the Deamidated Gliadin Peptide IgG. It was weakly positive at 24. 30 being strong postive. So I googled what Deamidated Gliadin Peptide was and a whole slew of celiac articles popped up. I had a biopsy in 2008 which I was told was negative for celiac disease, but I think my Gastro only took one biopsy. I want to be realistic here and not keep barking up the same tree if I don't have celiac disease, but I was shocked to see the DGP IgG positive. Do you guys think this test could correlate with other possible diseases? They did do other celiac tests like the IgA and Ttg test which were in normal ranges.Endomysial test also normal. I guess what I want to know is, with this one test being positive, should I look further into celiac disease or should I not worry about it? Thanks for any input in advance.
