I know that resting can be inaccurate. I currently have Bart stretch marks rashes on shoulders, sides and upper thigh. My left heel has hurt since Nov, nodules under skin off shins, shin pain, general bone pain, and numerous other Bart symptoms including severe psych issues.
My bart igg was positive
My bart iga was negative despite active rashes. My immunoglobulin a is 90 and scale is 81 to 436. I know this because my iga for ttg for celiac is always normal, even after eating gluten. But my igg will be positive. Is any one else borderline iga deficient? Wondering if I should have igm level tested?
Should I do igenex testing for Bart? Or is there a cheaper option? My Dr believes I have it, so maybe it's not worth testing.
It's usually IgM and IgG that is tested for these diseases.
You have IgG positive - plus stretch marks, nodules...bone pain - psyche issues....'nuff said.
If your Dr. believes you have it...then no need to test. Are you seeing a LLMD?
