Low Ig A And Celiac Disease
High albicans, igg, iga, and igm. Serum iron and % sat high, T4 low, and folate (folic acid) low-help where do I start? Have celiac disease.
See a hematologist: If your iron level is high, you need to be bled periodically to prevent damages to your organs particularly your liver. This is a continuing process and not a one-shot deal. As for your thyroid, you need another test to confirm whether your thyroid replacement is adequate. Since natural thyroid extract is not standardized, it is hard to regulate your thyroid with it (used about 50 yrs ago). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is Iga ttg test reliable?. Is it really possible to have undesirable inflammatory symptoms from gluten foods w/o celiac disease
If immunosuppressed patient & have symptoms of celiac disease, how to confirm it? Especially they will have -ve IgA ttg test and almost normal biopsy!
Clinical challenge: If none of the blood tests are conclusive, biopsy is generally diagnostic. If for any reason even that is not helpful, it may be worthwhile to do a clinical trial, i.E, put the patient on gluten free diet for at least 3 months to see if there is any improvement. If there is improvement it may be challenged by re-exposing to gluten. ...Read more
Anti-transglutaminas: Antibodies that bind to transglutaminase could indicate the presence of celiac disease. This is a sugggestive test only. Negative testing does not definitively rule-out celiac dz and positive testing does not confirm the diagnosis. An intestinal biopsy would be the most helpful test. ...Read more
Tissue transglutaminase IgA resulted in 2.26. Igg resulted in .47. Does that necessarily mean I have celiac disease?
Looked normal: Iga ttg below 19 u is considered normal. Unless you had an IgA deficiency, i wonder why igg ttg was ordered? If you indeed had an IgA deficiency, then even the slightly positive igg titer would warrant hla genetic testing. If the figures provided were in units, then you do not have celiac disease. ...Read more

If I have an elevated transglutaminase iga, hypothyroidism, and a mother with celiac disease. Is the likelihood that I have celiac disease.?
Yes, but ...: While your database is highly suggestive of a person at risk for celiac disease, the diagnosis still hinges on a diagnostic small bowel biopsy. Once the diagnosis is secure, a gluten-free diet should then result in a drop in tissue transglutaminase titer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My daughter had an IGA test done for Celiacs disease and the standard range was 25-150mL, her test result came back as 89mL, does she have Celiacs?
Not necessarily: The blood test for celiac is notoriously inaccurate. The gold standard for testing is endoscopy with biopsy. If you are not ready to go that invasive, just cut gluten out of her diet. These days, it is far easier than it used to be, given the large number of gluten free products in grocery stores. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Got a test result of 27.9 u/ml IgA and 60.4 u/ml. Igg or tissue transglutamanise. Went on a g.F. Diet but still wonder if I have celiacs disease?
Does a low result for HNK1 CD8-CD57+ Lymphs (15/uL, ref 60-360) indicate that further investigation or treatment is required, if I have Celiac disease?
Probably: One will need to evaluate a test based on the whole disease presentation. The question is why was the test obtained in th4e first place since this is not the usual test to monitor celiac disease. Another consideration is whether this was a lab error especially when the finding is not compatible with the disease suspected. ...Read more

Can low dose of amitriptyline take away symptoms of celiac disease? Specifically, chronic diarrhea and lack of appetite?
Combating symptoms: Amitriptylene has anticholinergic and antihistaminic side effects that can slow the bowel and increase appetite. In this way it can counteract some of the symptoms you're having (the chronic diarrhea and poor appetite). You'll need to work with your doctor to arrive at a dose that works well for you, balancing out these processes in a positive way. You'll still need to avoid gluten. ...Read more
