I wanted to post my blood test results to see what other opinions are. I'm not sure how I can be "mildly" positive so I was hoping for more insight

tTG IgA (U/mL) range 0-15 result: 25

Gliadin IgA (U/mL) range 0-15 result: 1
Gliadin IgG (U/mL) range 0-15 results: 1
IgA, Total (mg/dL) range 69-309 results: 397

I found out I was pregnant 2 days after receiving these results and I'll be honest...I haven't gone 100% gluten free. My pregnancy has been going well and my baby girl seems to be fine. I'm currently 28 weeks.
Thank you for your time!

You probably have celiac disease. Your Dr. has likely seen numbers up over 50 and even over 100 so he's saying you're "mildly positive", but that is clearly a positive test. It's difficult to get a false positive TTG test so chances are very good that you're celiac. I assume you didn't go through with the celiac biopsy because of your pregnancy?

If I were you I'd go 100% gluten-free, at least until you are done nursing. You can challenge and look into a biopsy later. I'd want to be absorbing vitamins and minerals as well I possibly could for the baby's final growth spurt and nursing. Being probably-celiac and eating gluten is risking far more than you probably realize. It's so easy to be low-calcium, low-iron, low B12, and pass those deficiencies on to a baby. I'm very glad to hear she's healthy, and going 100% gluten free is the best way to keep her that way. :)
