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

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?
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
Hi, How many weeks do I have to wait to get tested for EBV with EBV VCA IGG AB for a more accurate results from a recent exposure?
A week: The viral capsid VCA IGM is most sensitive and specific for acute infection. It becomes positive in a week, and goes away in 4 to 6 weeks. ...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?
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
I took a herpeselect test. Help understanding resultshsv 1 IgG herpeselect ab 0.30 0.00-0.89""2 "" ab 0.46 0.00-0.89 what's the meaning?
Herpes: If the range you posted is for a positive result, you have exposure to both genital and oral herpes. ...Read more
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
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
