my son (12) suffers from iron deficiency. The doctors prescribed him iron tablets and his results got better (after 1,5 month). They want to check the reasons. And they want to rule out coeliac d. His results are:
Immunoglobulin IgA . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 288.0 mg/dL
94 - 309: 12 - 16 yrs
Endomysine IgA abs test (IFA) . . : 1:32 Titer Negative (?)
Transglutaminase antibodies IgA . . . . . : Negative Titer Negative
The doctors say that Endomysine IgA abs test (IFA) is positive! I do not know why it the result it is written negative. Could not find any info about the norms.
And they want to make endoscopy!
My son has no other symptoms than iron deficiency. I press them to do some other blood tests before. Because as I was told IFA is not a specific test for coeliac.
What test should I do? I will be grateful for any guidance!
