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

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: gliadin antibody igg?

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

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. ...Read more

My serum test is negative for endomysial antibody iga, ttg tissue transglutasminase iga, gliadin antibody igg. But positive for gliadin antibody iga?

Treat the person: Lab tests mean nothing in isolation, and have many false positives and false negatives. The decision to make a trial of a gluten-free diet will be between you and your gastroenterologist or dermatologist based on the big picture. ...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?

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

Ra titer was 42 IU/ml and cyclic peptide IGG was 250. ESR and CRP were normal. Thoughts?

Ra titer was 42 IU/ml and cyclic peptide IGG was 250. ESR and CRP were normal. Thoughts?

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?

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

Please I would like to know if schistosoma ab IgG test detects every type of schistosoma?

Please I would like to know if schistosoma ab IgG test detects every type of schistosoma?

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

My ccp ab, IgG was 221 what would be the safest treatment to go on? Will it bring that number down?

My ccp ab, IgG was 221 what would be the safest treatment to go on? Will it bring that number down?

It depends on other: It depends on other tests and your exam. The ccp antibody is seen with rheumatoid. Your rheumatologist will interpret this in conjunction with lab findings. Also your x-rays will determine what medication you will go on as well your medical history. The number that we would want to reduce instead of the ccp is any elevated levels of inflammation such sed rate and crp. Hope that helps. ...Read more

What is candida ab IgG and how is it contracted? What are the symptoms of candida ab igg? And how do you treat it? What is the prognosis?

What is candida ab IgG and how is it contracted? What are the symptoms of candida ab igg? And how do you treat it? What is the prognosis?

Candida spp.: Candida is a yeast-like fungus. The antibody (Ab) to this is formed by elements of your immune system and the particular antibody to which you are referring is an immunoglobulin G (IgG). This is not a disease and these results alone don't need treatment. Discuss this with the doctor who ordered the test. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can someone interprete what this means? In regards to strep. Pneumo. Igg ab (14 sero)...Type 3=. 01 ug/ml, type 4=0.2, type 9v, 12f and 23f all = 0.5

No antibodies: If you have not received the pneumococcal vaccine then you have probably not been infected with any of these strains of pneumococcus, a gram positive bacteria that causes pneumonia, sinus & ear infections & meningitis. If you have received the vaccine & these values represent antibody levels obtained 4-6 weeks later then you have hypogammaglobulinemia. Probably cvid. See your immunologist. ...Read more

H.Pylori ab (igg) negative mean?

H.Pylori ab (igg) negative mean?

No test is perfect: H.pylori is a organism that promotes ulcers. Your negative serum test implies an absence of protective antibodies, presumably due to lack of exposure or infection. Of course, a "false negative" result occurs with all testing. There are many ways to test for H.pylori so if you have risk factors, exposures, or high suspicion of infection get a confirmatory study. ...Read more

What do HSV 1 and 2-Specific Ab, IGg results of 14.90 (H) and. 91, respectively, indicate?

Need reference range: 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, Each laboratory usually provides a reference range for the results, i.e, the values seen in normal people. It appears that you have had HSV 1 infection but not HSV 2. ...Read more
