Do you have the normal reference ranges that your lab uses? It's difficult to interpret results without it as lab ranges can vary quite a bit.


Without that though, I would say your one celiac test (tTG IgA) looks negative. It should be pretty accurate as long as you have normal IgA levels. I don't know much about genetic testing but it looks like you don't have the genes typically associated with celiac disease (but one can have celiac disease without those genes - just not as often).
