Hello, we are new to celiac disease. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if 17.9 is considered a high result for the Tissue Transglutaminase AB.Iga test if 7.0 and greater is positive?

That is definately a positive result. Even an 8 is a positive result. Welcome to the boards and get thee gluten free. Ask any and all questions you need to and be assured that while things can be a bit hard to get used to at first the health benefits are well worth the initial 'getting used to it'.

Depends on the reference scale. Do you have that information?

Hi, The reference scale is given in this line

"17.9 is considered a high result for the Tissue Transglutaminase AB.Iga test if 7.0 and greater is positive"

The reference scale lists 7.0 and above as high. Hers was 17.9

Whoops, misread your post then.

Yep, that's definitely high, she more than doubled the normal range. Definitely celiac.

Becky - My TTG from my doc's office came out at 10.5 - which she considered positive, did an endoscopy and saw celiac damage. After doing the diet for about 6 months I am back at a normal level which is 2.3.

Any questions feel free to email me.
