Further work up : Is needed. Depending on the pain location, imaging studies may help in diagnosing your condition. Alternatively, an upper endoscopy would definitely help in ruling in or out esophageal and/ or gastric pathology. A gastroenterology consult would be appropriate in such circumstances. ...Read more

Lipase (Definition)

Lipases, such as lipoprotein lipase and endothelial lipase, are enzymes that breakdown circulating triglycerides (tg). 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.

I recently had a celiac panel done and it came back negative. However the immunoglobulin a, qn, serum level was low at 59. Is this serious?

I recently had a celiac panel done and it came back negative. However the immunoglobulin a, qn, serum level was low at 59. Is this serious?

Unlikely: Low IgA occurs in about 1/333 people. Most people with this isolated deficiency do not have problem. A very low IgA level may make a celiac test based on IgA antibody false-negative- ie. The disease is there but the test fails to detect it. However yours is not low enough. ...Read more

Celiac Disease (Definition)

In celiac disease, the body reacts to gluten (in wheat and gluten-like proteins in rye and barley) resulting in damage to the small intestine. This limits the intestine's ability to absorb some nutrients. Typically, people with celiac disease have loose stools, bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort, weight loss, poor weight gain ...Read more
