Interpretation of Results Required, Coeliac & Immunoglobulins

Hi,

Earlier on last year I had the following tests:

Prot Electrophoresis Polyclonal increase IgA

Immunoglobulin G level (XE259) 11.0 g/L (5.0 - 15.0)

Immunoglobulin A level (XE25B) 3.91 g/L (0.8 - 2.8) Above High Reference Limit

Immunoglobulin M level (XE25A) 0.37 g/L(0.5 - 2.0) Below Low reference limit

Tissue transglutaminase IgA level (XaJg2)

0.5 u/mL (0.0 - 4.0)

Tissue Transglutaminase Ab (IgA)

False negative results in coeliac disease may occur if the patient is on a gluten free diet or is IgA deficient. This test identifies the majority of IgA deficient patients but if there is a strong suspicion of deficiency then please request an IgA measurement.

Would be grateful if someone could interpret my results please and how significant these results are. Many thanks

If you dont get any positive answers from this site you might want to try the healthunlocked coeliac site.

Thanks Moggie, sorry I was unaware of the Coeliac site.

No need to be sorry - coeliac and thyroid illness do tend to cross over so someone on here might well be able to answer you but I thought I would just point you in an alternative direction just in case and also because I have heard good reports about the site as well.
