What Celiac Blood Test Results Look Like

Crazy busy at work (which I love since I’m getting to work on character development and standardizing regional dialects). But. I’d meant to include some screencaps of my celiac test results in my last post and forgot to.

Here are my celiac panel results after three months back on gluten:

After three months on gluten.

The tTG is the one I consider most important, and I had a score of 37; anything above 8 is considered positive. I don’t know which one my doctor considers most important, but since two are clearly positive that’s not really a problem. As positive test results go, these are not particularly high.

For comparison, here’s what my test results looked like when I’d been off of gluten for a year:

My test results after being gluten free for a year.

Negative. Every single one was negative. Which is great. It means that I’d been successful in going gluten free. My body was recovering, if not fully recovered, from the damage. You only produce gluten antibodies when you’re consuming gluten on a regular basis.

And here is my genetic test:

Celiac genetic test, positive for DQ8.

You only need one of these two genetic markers to have celiac disease. However, having the marker doesn’t mean you actually have celiac disease. Just that it’s a possibility.

There you have it.

    My number was 511 where yours was 37. Within 4 months of a gluten free diet it went down to 24 and a year on it is down to 11 but my villi isnt healing. This is worrying but the bloods are surely saying I am doing the right thing?????
