Biocard is an anti-TTG IgA test. There are other tests doctors use along with anti-TTG. I don't know about the sensitivity of Biocard, but if you come up positive, it's pretty suggestive of celiac. There are other autoimmune conditions that can cause anti-TTG so your doctor will go to work sorting things out.
