The IGA and IGG go hand in hand in determining if there is a possibilty for gluten intolerance. THe IGG can be elevated for a number of reasons, therefore is not specific enough to make a determination alone. In some Celiacs there is an IGA deficiancy and so if it shows up negative, your Dr may choose to do a total IGA work up, which may have already been done. That # if normal would indicate that you are not celiac.
The TTG is extremely specific for Clieac. If you are positive than there is a good chance you have a gluten sensivity.
The combination of these 4 tests allow for a fairly reasonable idea of celiac or not.
Since your TTG is negative, and your IGA is not significantly high, My guess is your Dr will probably say you are not celiac. But again!!!! I am not an expert. Im just going by what my Dr's have explained to me.
Hope this helps.
