What does a high Immunoglobulin A, QN, Serum count mean? Ref. Interval for the test is 70-400, my count is 422.
Google Research for the last hour reading over several different posts and columns.
In your case I would not consider this to be of any significant concern. It is only slightly elevated for one thing.
It is typically more concern when it is low.
When this is tested one reason is to search for an immune deficiency. Some people are deficient in IgA and this may correspond to increased vulnerability to certain infections.
This would not appear to be a concern here in your case.
K, it was highlighted on my lab results when tested for Celiac Disease.
There are specific antibiodies which are tested for Celiac disease.
Sounds good to me. The four listed below were all negative, that was the only highlighted item so just wanted to check. Thanks
IgA antitissue Transglutaminase and IgA antiendomysial antibodies would correspond to Celiac disease but the general IgA antibody class does not mean that you have Celiac disease.
You are welcome. If you have further questions then let me know and I will be happy to get back with you.
