Celiac And Immunoglobulin A Qn Serum
Variable Sx; slight: Celiac can have variable sx, incl gas, bloat, diarrhea, wt loss, rarely gain, constipation, joint aches and pains (often from vitamin d def), fatigue (often from iron def), osteoporosis, swallowing probl, rarely liver probl. Can get screened with blood testing, and/or genetic testing. Assoc with other autoimmune diseases such as ibd, psoriasis, rheum arth, lupus, type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease.See 1 more doctor answer
Immunoglobulin a is an antibody that plays a critical in mucosal immunity found in mucosal secretions, tears, saliva, breast milk, the gastrointestinal tract, and the lungs. It helps prevent against sinus infections, ear infections, and pneumonia. More IgA is prodced per day than ...Read more
I recently had a celiac panel done and it came back negative. However the immunoglobulin a, qn, serum level was low at 59. Is this serious?
Unlikely: Low IgA occurs in about 1/333 people. Most people with this isolated deficiency do not have problem. A very low IgA level may make a celiac test based on IgA antibody false-negative- ie. The disease is there but the test fails to detect it. However yours is not low enough.
Normal: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your IgA level is normal.
My blood work indicated I have low Immunoglobulin A, QN, Serum and Low Igg 1 and 3as well as 14 low Pneumococcal types; could this be why I have fatig?
Possibly: The fatigue can be due to recurrent respiratory infections, secondary to the immunoglobulin defiencies, and the low antibodies titers, kindly keep the follow up with an allergist/immunologist preferably in a tertiary care facility, you may need intravenous immunoglobulins replacement therapy, wish you wellness
Waldenstrom's Dz: An elevation of immunoglobulin m (igm) in the serum esp. If monoclonal (of one kind) raises the possibility of waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia - a malignancy affecting lymphocytes or plasma cells that produce this abnormal IgM protein causing symptoms of hyperviscosity - confusion, shortness of breath, stroke, kidney damage etc.
Likely nothing: You IgG level while at the low side is still within normal limits. If you do not have any symptoms, do not worry about the number. You may consult this site for info on this topic: https://medlineplus. Gov/ency/article/003545.htm
Don't worry: I presume that these tests were done because of recurrent sinus or lung infections. Ig g is a measurement of the major antibody type which is involved in fighting against infections. If the total is normal but the igg3 is low, it has little meaning. But if your total igg1 is low, then this may be of concern.
Is a serum immunofixation test focused on monoclonal immunoglobulins but can also detect polyclonal ones or just the former? Thanks.
I had an immunoglobulin g, qn, serum appear on my blood test result of 2364, yet my doctor said it's not an issue. Is he right?
Correct.: Look at the person. Look at the numbers only when they shed light on the person.

My 3 yr old took an allergy test her immunoglobulin e total was 12 immunoglobulin g qn serum total 1111 they said was high immunoglobulin a 90 means?
Immunoglobulins: Ige is the allergic antibody (this was normal). An elevated igg level might simply be if he was fighting an active infection at the time (this is a good sign). Iga protects mucosal membranes (sinus, lungs, GI tract, urinary tract) and his level is normal. Feel reassured that these labs look very good.
I have the following and no definitive diagnosis. Low (8.3)hgb, hct (25), require IV iron every 4-6 mo. Lately immunoglobulin m, qn serum 415.FATIGUE?
SEVERE ANEMIA: Can cause the fatigue you are having. Hope you are under the care of a hematologist or other specialist to get the right DX.
What would cause free kappa &free lamba to be high but ratio normal also Immunoglobulin M, Qn, Serum high. Platelets steady rising & WBC high for 1yr?
Polyclonal gammopath: Something is stimulating all the B cell lines to produce a lot of antibodies. That general condition is called polyclonal gammopathy. It can be caused by a chronic infection (virus) or 9 other broad categories of causes (liver problems, connective tissue diseases, bone marrow disorder like Waldenstrom's, drugs/meds, autoimmune probs, misc).

Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin. Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too.??
Possibly: If I am understaning this right you have a monoclonal protien band? The most important next steps here would be to identify the band (immunofixation) and then perfrom quantitvaive immunoglobulin levels. IF there is a monoclonal band, you may very well have reciprocal depriciation of alternative immunoglobulins and IgA deficiecny with an IgG monoclonal protein is possible.
Could celiac disease cause ANA positive 1:640 spec pattern and elevated sed. Lupus neg. Serum protein normal?

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).See 1 more doctor answer
Daughter diagnosed with Celiac Disease 8 weeks ago. Now has severe itching on lower legs only at night time. Low white blood count and high Globulin Serum levels. Severe weight loss, and bruising What could cause this? Itching Issues
There is a very: Characteristic skin rash that accompanies celiac disease: dermatitis herpetiformis. Typically this is a skin manifestation of non-celiac wheat sensitivity. Extremely itchy bumps or blisters appear, especially on the forearms. The lab abnormalities you describe are not typical for celiac; in fact serum globulins may be low. I suspect more than one diagnosis; continue working closely with her Doctor
