Celiac Disease And Staff Bacteria In Urine Test
Are these bad results in my urine test or no?
URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen
BACTERIA IN URINE-Few
Not really: In a normal urine, there shouldn't be any epithelial cells. Trauma or infection can cause them to be present. Few bacteria are not necessarily a bad sign. There is a condition called asymptomatic bactiuria (which just means bacteria in the urine without there being an infection). I'm not very concerned about the mucus. This should all be correlated with your symptoms of course. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood, stool, ?scope: A history and physical exam will be most important. They will very likely start with blood tests. Often they get stool tests which can take a few days to come back. Based on all of this data they will decide on whether your child needs an endoscopy or colonoscopy which is a direct look in the bowels with a small camera.

Evolving issue: For diagnosis, the intestinal biopsy is the accepted confirmatory test for cd.It identifies the villous atrophy that reverses on a gluten free diet. Several gene markers (dq2 , dq8 ) are found in 90% of patients with cd but are also found in 40-50% of the population.Immune markers are suggestive, but which immune markers to study is under study.Cyrex labs has some detailed info posted on their site. ...Read more
No, definite chance: Blood tests for wheat allergy measure IgG and/or IgE antibodies to proteins in wheat (which may include gluten) but not everyone with celiac disease will have these antibodies. The best blood test is IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase. If you really want to rule out celiac disease you should get that test- but only after eating gluten!

I have not checked for Celiac disease. Should I get a blood test? I have been under a lot of stress lately. I also drink a lot of caffeine.
Maybe: Your question does not provide enough info to confirm or exclude need for a celiac screening. It is a real problem with some subtle symptoms and effects. Screening is simple but confirmation requires an intestinal biopsy.You should have it confirmed before trying a gluten free lifestyle, which has a cult like following. True celiacs have other associated risks that need to be explored. ...Read more
Hard to comment: You provide no list of the "tests" you are referring to.The intestinal biopsy that is considered the gold standard by some can be negative if you have been gluten free for an extended period. Some blood screening tests are more precise than others.

Celiac diagnosis: The age at which you suspect the diagnosis. You test whenever the symptoms occur and are consistent with possible celiac disease. I know of people who have been diagnosed in early childhood and at advanced ages. The oldest person I have seen diagnosed and successfully controlled with diet was my own mother, who i always assumed had been tested decades ago. Just shows we need to think of it more. ...Read more
Bloodwork: Celiac disease is usually screened for (in the right patient) with blood tests. Depending on the results of these blood tests, you may be referred to a gastroenterologist to get a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. You have to be on a regular diet (not gluten-free!) for these tests to be valid. ...Read more
Diffuse increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes. How likely is it celiac disease? What other tests should be done?
Too vague a question: I trust you are referring to some biopsy findings and thus need to know where the biopsy was obtained. The definitive diagnosis for celiac disease is a small intestinal biopsy. Certain blood tests such as IgA ttg is said to be over 90% sensitive in detecting gluten sensitivity provided that you are not avoiding gluten when the blood sample is obtained. ...Read more
