My Endo just ordered this test for me, and I dont believe I had one of these when I had my first Celiac blood test last year.
Anyone know how reliable or specific this one is?
Thanks for any info.

Hi Tasha, That is the test I had and my value was 97. Since going gluten-free, my bowel symptoms are gone; I'm still fighting the fatigue, however, after 2 months. Here are links with more info about the test:

YankeeDB: You win the prize for sending me the information. I appreciate it.
I had a positive IgA test, but everything else was negative (that was last year.) This year the doctor decided to run the Ttg. I have no symptoms whatsoever, except some tummy "bubbling." I should have the results of this test this week, and am just trying to keep the situation monitored in case things change.
