IgA quantification

Indication

Exclusion of IgA defi ciency in connection with coeliac disease diagnosis.

Method

ELISA

Answer

The result is given as g/L.

Reference range

0.88-4.5 g/L.

Interpretation

Selective IgA defi ciency (IgA 0.05 g/L) is relatively common and occurs with a frequency of 1/600 of the population. The condition is more common in patients with coeliac disease and must therefore be excluded, when the serological diagnosis of coeliac disease is based on IgA antibodies.
