I have been having on and off stomach aches for about a year. I get frequent gas, bloating, urge to go poop, and my stomach almost always hurts in the lower part, like where my belly button is. I went to the GI last month and he ordered some lab tests and an upper GI. The upper GI came back negative. The lab tests tested for Celiac disease, and three of them came back negative except for the t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG. My result was a 6 (weak positive), normal being from 0 - 5. My Immunoglobulin A also came back low (51), with a normal level being from 87 - 352. I read about Immunoglobulin A deficiency and saw that people who are deficient are more likely to have celiac. I also read that people with celiac and IgA deficiency could have skin rashes, and I also have eczema. I'm going to do an endoscopy next month, but I was wondering if it is likely that I would have gotten a false positive since my result was just barely positive?
I was diagnosed with Celiacs several months ago. I then had both my daughters tested since I also was positive for both Celiac genes. DQ2 and DQ8. My older daughters results showed >100 on t-Transglutaminase (tTg) IgA (o-3 is normal). She is now on a gluten free diet. Neither myself or my daughters have or had GI issues associated with Celiacs. My younger daughter got a 4 on the same test, which is considered Weak positive. She also got the following results on Deamidated Gliadin test: IgA 8 (0-19 normal) IgG 15 (0-19 normal) Her pediatrician said she does not have Celiac. Do you agree with this? What does weak positive mean? I just wondering if I should pursue this further for her. Thanks!
