What do my celiac disease tissue transglutaminase iga/igg results mean?

What do my celiac disease tissue transglutaminase iga/igg results mean?

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?

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

My TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IGA is <1.23 U/mL, range is <=3.99 U/mL and my IGA is 114 mg/dL range is 70 - 400 mg/dL, what does this indicate?

My TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IGA is <1.23 U/mL, range is <=3.99 U/mL and my IGA is 114 mg/dL range is 70 - 400 mg/dL, what does this indicate?

Celiac unlikely: Why were these tests done? Do you have any symptoms? 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, it is unlikely that you have Celiac disease/gluten intolerance.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

My daughter age 3y10m her weight is 8 kg and her test result of anti transglutaminase-IgA = 2.45 U/ml and anti transglutaminase-IgG =31.79 U/ml is she normal or not??

My daughter age 3y10m her weight is 8 kg and her test result of anti transglutaminase-IgA = 2.45 U/ml and anti transglutaminase-IgG =31.79 U/ml is she normal or not??

Should see your doc.: The tTG-IgA is in normal range, but IgG is elevated. This likely represents POSITIVE result SUGGESTING Celiac disease. However, a biopsy is needed to confirm the diagnosis. Because IgA is normal while IgG is high, this suggests possible IgA deficiency, which is more common in people with Celiac Disease. Either way, you should talk to your doc about the results as she may need further tests. ...Read more

My 13y/o daughter has type 1 diabetes. She recently had blood work and her tissue transglutaminase antibody IgA came back high at 39, why is this?

Celiac sprue screen: People with type I diabetes are at extra risk for some of the other autoimmune diseases including gluten enteropathy. What her physician will do this this information remains to be seen -- your daughter's old enough to talk and participate in any decisions such as a possible trial of a gluten-free diet. ...Read more

How accurate are negative herpes blood IgG test results after 3 months? My obgyn said I should be fine but I want to make sure I really am negative.

Herpes simplex: It would be surprising to see many people negative for herpes serology in this day and age. If it is, great. But even if it were positive that is no guarantee that you will ever get active lesions. Despite their absence, however, if you do have herpes in your body you may excrete the virus and infect others. Good luck. This is complicated. ...Read more

Possible vasculitis: I would have an ANCA panel checked, especially with you saying you're having hematuria and proteinuria. There are a few conditions we refer to as pulmonary renal syndromes and they are all a type of vasculitis. Some of the names are Wegener's and Goodpasture's. ...Read more

What does it mean when I have an index value of 20.9 for a herpes i, ii, and IgG test? Lab results

Old infection: I do not know the reference value of the lab that did the test but I assume this is higher than normal and is interpreted as reactive. It means at one point in your life, you have been exposed to both varieties of hepres -i generally responsible for 'cold sores' and ii, generally responsible for genital lesions. However with diverse sexual practicess, they are becoming more interchangeable. ...Read more

What should be the result of rubella IgG test during 9 weeks pregnancy?

What should be the result of rubella IgG test during 9 weeks pregnancy?

Depends: The rubella blood test is checking to see if you are immune to the rubella virus. Rubella, also known as german measles, can cause problems for the baby if the mom gets it while pregnant. If igg is positive then she is immune and she doesn't need to worry about german measles. If negative she needs to avoid sick people with rash, and get immunized after delivery. ...Read more

Will recent HFM disease affect the result of hsv 2 igg test? Recently I got 2.7 in the test but I did not have high risk sexual behaviours.

No: If you have ever been exposed to HSV2 your body will mount a response. This response is what we look for in the blood test. HSV 2 does not cause symptoms in 90% of those who have it. STD's do not discriminate and are always possible, so testing before the onset of activity with a new partner is a MUST! Anyone, regardless of high risk behavior or not, can contract an STD so always use protection. ...Read more

What does a 9.9 on a herpes IGG test mean? That number is higher than other results posted in forums so I wanted to see if that is a normal result.

Depends on test: There are several HSV IgG antibody tests, with different numbers for positive results. The most common is HerpeSelect®, for which 9.9 is strongly positive. For other tests this may be negative. If you have the lab report, it should show numbers for negative, indeterminate, and positive, separately for HSV1 and HSV2. Or contact and discuss with the doctor or lab where test was done. Good luck! ...Read more
