My husbands' ttg came back at 21, which his doctor terms "mildly positive" but my son's peds GI says "well, positive is positive". I didn't think you could be "mildly celiac", can you? I was negative, my older son is negative, and the youngest's ttg was (wait for it!) 157!! DH will be repeating the entire celiac panel....

You can't be mildly celiac, but I think the doctor meant "borderline celiac"....you can't be mildly celiac, but you can be borderline with diagnosis............I can see where "mildly" would throw you off, though.

I agree with celiac3270.

That Ttg test is specific to intestinal damage... which means that if a biopsy were performed, it would most likely be positive.
