  1. Hi all. I'm new to the boards and am hoping someone can provide me with some advice, because my doctor has been pretty useless! I have had blood tests and an endoscopy to test for coeliac (in Australia its called coeliac, but in the US celiac.... strange). My Tissue Transglutaminase IG levels were normal but my Gliadin IGA levels were slightly elevated (5.4 g/L and normal is between 0.89 - 4.46 g/L). My endoscopy showed no damage to villi so I was told I didn't have coeliac disease and that was that. But I've since learned (through doing my own research, no thanx to my doctor) that raised IGA levels means I am gluten intolerant - is that correct? So whats the difference between gluten intolerance and coeliac disease? I went to another doctor today about my rasied IGA levels, and he told me he had no idea why they could be raised if the endoscopy showed no sign of coeliac. He seemed to think my raised IGA levels could be due to something else? I'm reaalllly confused. Is someone able to shed some light on this? Thank you
