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.

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?

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
