Specifically, lipases degrade tg rich lipoproteins including chylomicrons, very low density lipoprotein (vldl) and remnant particles produced by breakdown of chylomicron and vldl particles. Decreased lipase function leads to accumulation of ...Read more
Celiac diagnosis: The "gold standard" procedure for diagnosis of celiac disease is the upper GI biopsy, but a skin biopsy for dermatitis herpetiformis (itchy blisters) from an elbow or shin can also be definitive. Both biopsies show IgA antibodies in the tissues. Many people without "perfect" diagnoses still find they benefit from gluten free diets. Your brother's blood test is suggestive but not definitive. ...Read more

How much gluten food does a patient need to eat before taking a celiac panel blood test? How far in advance does she need to eat gluten food? Thanks!
Sometimes none: A celiac "panel" should look for several things and some of those will be positive in people with celiac disease without any exposure to gluten at or before the time of the test. Certain antibodies will only be positive if you have been exposed to gluten a day or so before the study, but they do not define celiac disease. ...Read more

My doc sent me for the Celiac panel, Gliadin & Transglutaminase were normal but IGA serum was 424, doc said the norm is 90, what does this mean?
Nonspecific test: IgA is the bodies first line of defense for many infections at the mucosal surfaces. An elevated IgA is often associated with inflammation or infection. The test is very nonspecific alone and I'd advise you to continue to follow up with your physician as per their request for the work up of your symptoms. ...Read more
