Update on Clinical Findings (Cardiolipin Antibodies)
Hi there!  42 year old, caucasian female ...

Update on my lab tests ... December 2010 was DNA tested for Gluten and found 2 positive genes for gluten sensitivity, which means the symptoms would be far more severe.  January 2012, a stool test for Anti-gliadin IgA was very positive, even though all blood tests for this have always been negative.  On 2-28-2012, my most recent blood test for Cardiolipin Antibody IGM was 69 MPL (3 total tests now).  My menstrual periods continue to be eratic.

I'm worried about the Cardiolipin test mostly, because of blood clotting.  Is it possible that I have full blown Celiac Disease and that's causing the rise in the Cardiolipin test or that Menopause is possible?  I feel like I have malabsorption and feel like I could have full blown Celiac (and always have an extremely low BUN/Creatinine Ratio).  Should I be worried about the Cardiolipin?  I'm getting referred to a Rheumatologist, but am worried.  My mother had Pulmonary Embolism at the age of 45, which other clots developed in her limbs, and she died a few months later with Cancer; but, during that time, it was found that she had Lupus.

Please help!  Thanks!!!

Hi!
Anti-cardiolipin antibodies can rise even without a cause. However, if you have an autoimmune disorder like celiac disease and a family history of embolism, then anti-phspholipid syndrome (main cause of thrombotic events), systemic lupus erythematosus, malaria and tuberculosis should be ruled out as the cause of raised levels. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
