What does igg, iga, and c-reactive protein have to do with detecting celiac's? They are normal levels, no antibodies detected.

What does igg, iga, and c-reactive protein have to do with detecting celiac's? They are normal levels, no antibodies detected.

Nothing really: You need to produce IgA to use the most sensitive blood test that we use to screen for celiac which is ttg-iga ab. Other tests include ema, and dgp. Regular gliadin abs should not be used as they are not very sensitive. The gold standard is a biopsy from the duodenum (small intestine). ...Read more

What does it mean when your blood test showed candida antibody IgA 1.5. Igm 1.2. Igg 1.9. All high?

Beware: I would be very cautious about any physician or other health care practitioner who proposes to treat you for a candida infection on the basis of bloodwork in the absence of a specific clinical finding of an infection. Labs that promote these tests are strongly linked to fringe medicine. My main concern is that you'll be given inappropriate medication and/or overlook a real health problem. ...Read more

Accurate, but why?: Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is caused primarily by a particular type of chlamydia, called L2. The Quest test is very accurate; a negative result 5 months after exposure or possible symptoms is strong evidence against LGV. But why be tested? Symptoms? Partner w/ possible LGV? In the US, LGV occurs almost entirely in gay men; there have been few or no cases in women for the past half century. ...Read more
