I am confused as to whether this is definite gluten intolerance if your gliadin antibody is high?

See below: Gluten intolerance in absence of celiac disease is common. There are many antibiody tests used to diagnose celiac disease (gliadin, endomysial, tissue transglutaminase). The IgA form of the antibodies are most specific. Gliadin is the least accurate of the three. All can be negative if you are on a gluten free diet. It is best to discuss your tests with your doctor.

Gluten (Definition)

Wheat barley rye contains gluten, a protein molecule that in susceptible people can cause reactions and long term illness. There is celiac, the most well known and severe gluten disease. There is gluten sensitivity, affecting more people, but usually milder. There is wheat allergy, less common than the others. The treatment, for now, is to avoid all gluten in ...Read more

My 8 yr old daughter gliadin peptide IgE is 3 units. Does this mean she is mildly gluten sensitive?

My 8 yr old daughter gliadin peptide IgE is 3 units. Does this mean she is mildly gluten sensitive?

Hard to tell: The antigliadin antibody tests have a poor predictive value for gluten sensitivity. That doesn't mean she isn't gluten sensitive, its just that the gliadin peptide IgE doesn't really help us know. I would base your decision more off of her symptoms. If she has abdominal pain, diarrhea or consitpation, do a short trial off of gluten to see if those symptoms resolve.

Just recently did bloodwork test for gliadin Ab, sIgA it it came in high at 56. I have been gluten free for 4 years. What else would cause that?

Just recently did bloodwork test for gliadin Ab, sIgA it it came in high at 56. I have been gluten free for 4 years. What else would cause that?

Nothing. It stays +: You did not mention if you are having any symptoms or what was the reason for doing the blood test. Your immune antibodies against the components of gluten will stay positive if your immune system considers it relevant. Just continue to strictly avoid eating anything with gluten. Keep in mind that even some medications contain gluten. No need to keep testing if the diagnosis is made.

Iga gliadin was positive six months back. Now gluten free and IgA is negative but lower abdominal discomfort and incomplete evacuation feeling remain?

Celiac + what else?: Celiac disease (cd) is an immune-mediated enteropathy that inflames and destroys the lining of the small intestine. It is triggered in genetically-determined persons by dietary exposure to gluten (protein found in wheat, barley, rye). Your described symptoms, after gluten restriction, are atypical for cd so further investigation is recommended.

Do elevated gliadin antibodies IgG and IgA mean gluten sensitivity?

Do elevated gliadin antibodies IgG and IgA mean gluten sensitivity?

TTG: I woul recommend having a ttg IgA antibody and possible duodenal bx, in doing so a diagnosis of celiac disease can be made. If if asymptomatic, there may be benefit from a gluten free diet especially if small bowel inflammation noted.

Seitan (aka fake protein from wheat gluten) is this likely to constipate me? I am a vegetarian who is allergic to soy.

Yes it could.: Seitan is likely to be constipating. Try stopping it for a while and see if your symptoms improve. You may be able to tolerate it in small amounts mixed with other foods.

I am vegetarian and gluten free. I consume eggs, fish, lentils, beans and greek yogurt for protein. Any other alternatives?

I am vegetarian and gluten free. I consume eggs, fish, lentils, beans and greek yogurt for protein. Any other alternatives?

Nuts ; seeds, also..: Technically you're not a vegetarian since you eat fish; it's fine to eat-just don't say you're a vegetarian! Nuts ; seeds are excellent sources of protein- hemp seeds are among the very best sources. Greens like broccoli ; kale contain surprising amounts of protein- see http://www. Drfuhrman. Com/faq/question. Aspx? Sid=16;qindex=9 quinoa is also a good source. Your current diet supplies good protein.

Zoey has been diagnosed with wheat, nut and egg allergy. We have cut gluten, eggs and all nuts out of her diet. Now she is always hungry and pale. She eats fruit and protein and gluten free products. Could this be celiac disease? Help please

Test/ dietitian: Celiac differs some from wheat allergy by creating antibodies that attack the intestines as if they were a virus. These can be found on blood tests. Celiac is then confirmed through added tests for intestinal injury. Either way you may also need to sit down with a clinical dietitian to make sure she receives balanced nutrition in spite of your exclusions.

Does anyone know what a gliadin ab blood test is for?

Does anyone know what a gliadin ab blood test is for?

Celiac sprue screen: One of several antibodies that may be drawn with the others for completeness. There's a lot of celiac sprue out there and it's a manageable disease. It may also pick the ultra-rare gliadin-sensitive neropathy, making it treatable. Good luck.

Gliadin ab is how accurate for testing for celiac disease?

Gliadin ab is how accurate for testing for celiac disease?

Better tests exist: The tissue transglutaminase IgA antibody is more specific and sensative than the anti-gliadin or anti-endomesial antibody.

I have a positive gliadin IgG for celiac disease. What does this mean?

I have a positive gliadin IgG for celiac disease. What does this mean?

You may have celiac: The usual test for celiac disease is the detection of IgA against gliadin. Some people don't make very much or any IgA (about 1 in 400 have this finding). In the absence of IgA persons with celiac disease make igg antibodies against gliadin. The diagnosis of celiac disease is generally made through endoscopy by the appearance of the small intestine with confirmation on biopsy.

Igg gliadin antibodies abnormal means what?

Igg gliadin antibodies abnormal means what?

Exposure: Basically, this your body's memory protein and tells us that, at some point, you've been exposed to the agent (e.g. Virus, substance, etc...). You should check with your doctor/lab about the significance of specific values.

Igg gliadin antibodies abnormal, what to do?

Igg gliadin antibodies abnormal, what to do?

More Testing: IgG antibodies to gliadin may be a sign of celiac disease. Especially if you are having chronic diarrhea. You need additional testing with your doctor including a test called an anti-tiisue transglutaminase and you may need a colonoscopy to diagnose to problem correctly.

I had a gliadin ab IgG test with a high result. Is this celiac?

Not necessarily: This is the least accurate of the celiac antibodies and can be elevated in absence of celiac disease. The most accurate antibodies are the tissue transglutaminase IgA and the endomysial iga.
