What does it mean when your blood test showed candida antibody IgA 1.5. Igm 1.2. Igg 1.9. All high?

What does it mean when your blood test showed candida antibody IgA 1.5. Igm 1.2. Igg 1.9. All high?

Beware: I would be very cautious about any physician or other health care practitioner who proposes to treat you for a candida infection on the basis of bloodwork in the absence of a specific clinical finding of an infection. Labs that promote these tests are strongly linked to fringe medicine. My main concern is that you'll be given inappropriate medication and/or overlook a real health problem. ...Read more

High albicans, igg, iga, and igm. Serum iron and % sat high, T4 low, and folate (folic acid) low-help where do I start? Have celiac disease.

High albicans, igg, iga, and igm. Serum iron and % sat high, T4 low, and folate (folic acid) low-help where do I start? Have celiac disease.

See a hematologist: If your iron level is high, you need to be bled periodically to prevent damages to your organs particularly your liver. This is a continuing process and not a one-shot deal. As for your thyroid, you need another test to confirm whether your thyroid replacement is adequate. Since natural thyroid extract is not standardized, it is hard to regulate your thyroid with it (used about 50 yrs ago). ...Read more

If I have an elevated transglutaminase iga, hypothyroidism, and a mother with celiac disease. Is the likelihood that I have celiac disease.?

If I have an elevated transglutaminase iga, hypothyroidism, and a mother with celiac disease. Is the likelihood that I have celiac disease.?

Yes, but. ..: While your database is highly suggestive of a person at risk for celiac disease, the diagnosis still hinges on a diagnostic small bowel biopsy. Once the diagnosis is secure, a gluten-free diet should then result in a drop in tissue transglutaminase titer. ...Read more

Is Iga ttg test reliable? . Is it really possible to have undesirable inflammatory symptoms from gluten foods w/o celiac disease

Is Iga ttg test reliable? . Is it really possible to have undesirable inflammatory symptoms from gluten foods w/o celiac disease

Not 100%: It is believed that it is around 90% sensitive if you are still consuming gluten. If you have avoided gluten for awhile, then the test is useless unless positive. There is no evidence that gluten avoidance benefits otherwise healthy people. This is just the disease du jour. ...Read more

My daughter had an IGA test done for Celiacs disease and the standard range was 25-150mL, her test result came back as 89mL, does she have Celiacs?

My daughter had an IGA test done for Celiacs disease and the standard range was 25-150mL, her test result came back as 89mL, does she have Celiacs?

Not necessarily: The blood test for celiac is notoriously inaccurate. The gold standard for testing is endoscopy with biopsy. If you are not ready to go that invasive, just cut gluten out of her diet. These days, it is far easier than it used to be, given the large number of gluten free products in grocery stores. Hope this helps! ...Read more

If immunosuppressed patient & have symptoms of celiac disease, how to confirm it? Especially they will have -ve IgA ttg test and almost normal biopsy!

If immunosuppressed patient & have symptoms of celiac disease, how to confirm it? Especially they will have -ve IgA ttg test and almost normal biopsy!

Clinical challenge: If none of the blood tests are conclusive, biopsy is generally diagnostic. If for any reason even that is not helpful, it may be worthwhile to do a clinical trial, i.E, put the patient on gluten free diet for at least 3 months to see if there is any improvement. If there is improvement it may be challenged by re-exposing to gluten. ...Read more

What do my celiac disease tissue transglutaminase iga/igg results mean?

What do my celiac disease tissue transglutaminase iga/igg results mean?

Anti-transglutaminas: Antibodies that bind to transglutaminase could indicate the presence of celiac disease. This is a sugggestive test only. Negative testing does not definitively rule-out celiac dz and positive testing does not confirm the diagnosis. An intestinal biopsy would be the most helpful test. ...Read more

Tissue transglutaminase IgA resulted in 2.26. Igg resulted in. 47. Does that necessarily mean I have celiac disease?

Tissue transglutaminase IgA resulted in 2.26. Igg resulted in. 47. Does that necessarily mean I have celiac disease?

Looked normal: Iga ttg below 19 u is considered normal. Unless you had an IgA deficiency, I wonder why igg ttg was ordered? If you indeed had an IgA deficiency, then even the slightly positive igg titer would warrant hla genetic testing. If the figures provided were in units, then you do not have celiac disease. ...Read more

I had blood and scopes done foe celiac. Negative for celiac, but with very high iga. Would you still recommend avoiding wheat?

? TTG: Do you mean the ttg an was elevated? Positive ab without active disease on small bowel biopsies is not too uncommon. And there is no right answer. If having GI sx that improve on gluten free diet, then probably best to continue. If not there is no need to avoid gluten just because of ab+. ...Read more

Can silent celiac be present if IgA and IgG are <2 (negative)? And causing neuropathy, w/high b12.

Can silent celiac be present if IgA and IgG are <2 (negative)? And causing neuropathy, w/high b12.

Celiac disease: The only reliable diagnosis for celiac disease is based on intestinal biopsies showing inflammatory damage that resolves when on a gluten-free diet. Blood testing for anti-dpg ot ttg are suggestive if positive but not definitive (negative testing does not eliminate celiac). Genetic testing is useful since the absence of hla-dq 2 or 8 alleles makes celiac disease unlikely (. ...Read more

My 13y/o daughter lab results r high ttg IgA 66 endomysial scr IgA positive and endomysial ab titer high at 1:40 what does all this mean? Dr r/o celiac

Likely: Does she have any symptoms (gastrointestinal, weight loss, anemia etc)? If she does, she should stay off gluten. If no symptoms, then it is more difficult to have definite answer although ideally she should avoid all gluten products. ...Read more
