Can anyone help me out. I recently had labwork done for Celiac Disease. Dr refered me to GI based on test results but can't be seen for 2 weeks. Results were as follows:

Endomysial Antibody IgA - Negative
tTG - IgA 1 (reference 0-3 negative)
Immunoglobulin A, Qn - 271 (reference 70-400)
Antigliadin Abs, IgG - 38 (positive >9)

So - all tests normal except for IgG. I was diagonised with IBS 5 years ago but have just started having severe symptoms again the last 6 months. Any ideas what the elevated IgG would be from other that Celiec Disease?

  • I was found to have an increased IgG protein level on a urinalysis my doctor recommended that I have an SPEP (Serum Protein Electrophoresis) done, maybe you should ask about having that test done and then go from there with your doctor regarding the results. Best wishes.

  • The fact that your anti-gliandin IgG is still positive suggests that you need to work even more closely at getting the rest of the gluten, that could be in your diet, out.

  • Look into NAET or BioSet - these two treatments can help reverse a gluten or wheat allergy. Please look into this - it is amazing. Best wishesDOM
