The DGP IgA is a very good test for detecting celiac disease. It is very specific to celiac (meaning very few other things can cause a positive test besides celiac disease). This report, on pages 11 and12 discus the tests: http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/assets/export/userfiles/2012_Celiac%20Disease_long_FINAL.pdf

Very few celiacs are positive on all tests, that's why they run so many. The total IgA is a control test to makes sure the other IgA based tests will be valid.

Give yourself longer than a month to feel better. Many ofus felt worse before we felt better. It can take a few months to years for some symptoms to go. Patience is important, but I do hope you feel better soon.

Welcome to the board.
