    I have high IgA levels but the rest of my coeliac bloods were normal. The tissue transglutaminase was negative. I have no idea what it means sad

    Hi not sure whether IGA is the same as tissue transglutaminase - but my 8 year old had a score of >300 and something called  HLA typing confirming DQ8 positive??

    She is definitely Coeliac's

    I went to the docs today and he said that even tho my IgA is raised (5.29 and should be below 4.50) because the tranaglutaminase is negative he said I don't have coeliac and to stop thinking about it. It's all confusing sad he said low IgA means coeliac but I know high can also mean coeliac.

    Hope your biopsy went ok smile

      It can be both low and high, my transglutaminase levels were above high reference limit and I tested positive for endomysial antibodies, hence biopsy to confirm.

      I haven't had results yet, it was awful, I didnt have sedation and was sick, they said possible scalloping in d2 part of intestine, which is classic with coeliac, but they need to under the microscope. I also had erytamous gastritis where my stomach meets my small intestine so I've got tablets for that. Will get there eventually 😊

      Wow u did well to get through it without the sedation. At least it's over and done with now, hopefully onwards and upwards now when u finally have a confirmed diagnosis. hopefully when you go gluten free you will start seeing a major difference smile

      I went gluten free the minute I'd had endoscopy. Starting to feel a little better. Just getting used to it now.
