Doctor/Practitioner
Certain lab tests may come back in the "normal" range. Reference ranges do not always mean "optimal." Patients may still experience symptoms in the "normal" range. It is important to speak with a qualified health practitioner regarding normal vs optimal.
Currently, NY, NJ, and RI state laws prohibit direct-access testing. This lab test cannot be conducted at lab locations within these states at this time.
Gastric Parietal Cell Antibodies (GPA) test results are used in the diagnosis of pernicious anemia- a type of vitamin B12 deficiency. Parietal cell antibodies are produced by the immune system that mistakenly attack parietal cells which are the cells that make stomach acid.
