Thanks! Will keep my fingers crossed that Gemini sees it (or someone else knowledgable in this area)!

Mushroom - hah, you've got it! ;) I've been off gluten for about 1.5 months now so it's probably "too late" for the time being. I'm enjoying gluten-free living so far so I plan to continue for the foreseeable future. Hoping it's what my body needs to keep a baby!

The TtG was also IgA. So I see your point. Huh! Well, I suppose I could ask my doctor to follow up with a total IgA, then at least I'd get a picture of whether or not I need to do some further testing and a gluten challenge down the road.

In your experience, do people ever test positive for *only* IgG and have it mean something on its own? (If that makes sense...

It would depend on whether it was the AGA IgA or the DGP IgA that was positive, and how positive it was, i.e., the lab's reference ranges.



Hi mushroom,

Thanks! I picked up the results and I got it mixed up. I tested positive for igG, not IgA. I have updated the post with the values and reference ranges above. I'm not sure whether it was AGA or DGP; all it says is Gliadin IgG/IgA. From what I've read I suspect it was AGA.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
