Serology 7 test results

I just got a copy of my Serology 7 blood test and some of my numbers are high, but I'm not sure if they are really high or not that high. The last one that is >100.0 really scared me. If you can help me interpret these numbers I would be sooo grateful. Thanks

ASCA Iga ELISA mine:41.5 normal: <20.5
ASCA IgG ELISA mine:41.5 normal: <22.2
ANTI-CBIR1: mine>100.0 normel: <34.9

Hey Shawn,
Definitely check with a Dr. because I can only give my best guess. From my understanding these are non-invasive tests to distinguish between Crohn's and UC? The fact that your levels are elevated point to Crohn's.

Couple of links:
1 and 2:
http://www.ibl-america.com/pdf/AutoImmune/ORG545.pdf
(Check out the "Summary and Explanation of the Test" section on Pg 3)

3
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15940634
(Complicated but:
"eliciting antibody responses in a subpopulation of patients with Crohn's disease (CD)"
and
"were associated with CD independently" stand out)

But I'd say give your Doc a call, i'm certainly not an expert!

Hey, Shawn. I hope ya don't mind that I moved your thread to the General IBD Discussion forum. This way, it doesn't get lost in the stories, and I think you'll get more answers here.

Have a good day.

There are too many forums to pick from sometimes.

Your question led me to dig out my daughters results:

ASCA IgA 149.4
ASCA IgG 62.8

Just FYI this was the test that led her doctor to positively confirm that she had Crohn's as opposed to UC.
Hope this helps.
best wishes
