Celiac Panel
I had a celiac panel done, but my pcp doesn't know if there is any significance to it.  Everything came back negative,  IgA, IgG, Gliadin, endomysial IgA...but my Immunoglobulin A came back low..72..normal range is 81>.  

I have read that you can still have Celiac or gluten intolerance and have a neg. test if you Immunoglobulin is low.  I feel better off of wheat, I ate a sandwhich and felt horrible.  Not sure if it is the wheat or the yeast...

Yes you are correct, with a low IgA, the diagnostic accuracy of the celiac panel is suspect.  Under these conditions a small bowel biopsy is the gold standard (not less that 6 samples).  However, if you feel better off of gluten, then probably you have celiac disease or at least gluten sensitivity. Avoiding gluten with the help of a dietitian who specializes in Celiac disease will make all the difference.

Yes, all my blood work for celiac disease came back as normal but biopsies taken during an endoscopy showed I had flattened Villi.  A diagnosis of celiac was made.  

But for a diagnosis to be made this way you have to continue eating a diet that includes gluten, wheat, barley and rye otherwise it is possible you will have a false negative result.

Hello, I'm new to these forums.

I recently had lab work done, turns out I'm B12 and D deficient, so I'm getting shots and taking supplements.  I've mainly read up on the D deficient forum, but with some mentioning Celiacs, I wanted to see if I've been tested for it, so I pulled out lab work that was done on 20 Jan.  I also had lab work done on 2 Feb and in the process of getting those results faxed to me.

On the lab work I have in front of me, it's a little blurry from the fax and I'm not really sure how to read it.  I do see the mention of IGG, but I just don't know what exactly I'm looking at.  Is everything under the section "Chemistry", pertaining to the tests needed for Celiacs?
