I have not had alot of responses from this site or any other "gastro" site...I am becoming very discouraged by the lack of it, but need it at the same time! (see previous post re; ferritin and LFT elevations please)
Went to GI Doc on the 9th...he took alot of blood work and then called me back in for more. (took 4 vials the 1st time, then 2 vials more 2 days later) I have to admit I feel pretty good after all that blood was taken) (more enrgy and joints are a bit less painful) These are the labs the Phlebot told me she was drawing for..need guidance to understand what they are/ or a site to explain to me what they are for.
Iron (not too specific on that one) not surprising though!
Anti smooth muscle AB
tissue transglutaminasl (sp?)
Any input? Please?

An after thought....I was adopted at the age of two, so have no familial history. Does this have any bearing on the labs he ordered?
Once again thank you
