Gliadin Peptide Ab Igg
Celiac disease? Biopsy needed? Endomysial AB IGA Negative, Gliadin AB IGA High=16, Anti-Gliadin IGG A B High=22, t-transglutanimaze IGG Normal 1.7, t-transglutanimaze igA Normal 3.1, IGA Normal 186
Depends on symptoms: If severe symptoms a biopsy is always the gold standard for diagnosis. If mild may just want to do the gluten free diet. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Gliadin- celiac: Anti-gliadin antibody is an antibody found in some patients with celiac disease. However, both the igg and IgA to gliadin are not sensitive or specific enough for adults, but used for children under 2 because tissue transglutaminase antibody, IgA levels, and other markers for antibody may be absent. ...Read more
Could you tell me if elevated gliadin (deanimated) antibodies IgG and IgA mean zi have a gluten sensitivity?
My serum test is negative for endomysial antibody iga, ttg tissue transglutasminase iga, gliadin antibody igg. But positive for gliadin antibody iga?
Depends: Different labs have different levels of what "normal" is. In the lab I use, this value of 6 would be normal. ...Read more
I tested and have a cyclic citrullinated peptide (ccp) ab (igg) >250 units and RA latex Turbid 170.7 IU/mL. And ANA direct negative. What r results?
Rheumatoid arthritis: Your tests are strongly suggesting rheumatoid arthritis. I do not know the range for RA latex for that specific lab, but if you have symptoms consistent with rheumatoid arthritis you most likely have rheumatoid arthritis. Talk to your doctor about the results and the benefits of a rheumatology consult. ...Read more
I took a cyclic citrullinated peptide IgG abs and the results were > 250h to the 4th power. What does this mean?
A newer test for RA: A positive result for cyclic citrullinated peptide (ccp) antibodies indicates a high likelihood of rheumatoid arthritis (ra). Results are usually reported in units with a value of >40 units considered positive. I'm not familiar with the scale that was used on your test. If its positive that's a strong sign that you have ra. ...Read more
See below: RA is not diagnosed by tests alone. Normal people can have positive tests and people with RA can have confusing tests. Diagnosis and treatment is based on a careful history and physical, x_rays and laboratory tests. All are necessary. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
No: It means that you have had rubella (german measles) in the past or have been immunized with the rubella vaccine. ...Read more

Mostly, yes.: This flourescent microscopy assay uses the microsomal fraction of adult s. Mansoni worms (mama) as antigen, and is thus highly specific (99%) and sensitive (96%) for detection of infection caused by s. Mansoni. Although the assay is also highly specific for infections caused by other schistosoma species (s. Japonicum, s. Haematobium, s. Mekongi), its sensitivity for these infections is lower (55%). ...Read more
