    The ttg test is for antibodies to Tissue Transglutaminase, which is an enzyme that normally occurs in the human body.  That means that if you have high levels of the ttg antibodies you have antibodies against yourself, i.e. autoimmune.  However, the levels of ttg antibodies do NOT necessarily correlate with the amount of damage to the intestines. Hope that helps a little?
    I don't have any background in biology and was trying to understand the ttg levels - and this may be covered somewhere else in the site - is the ttg test just providing an indicator? or is the what the ttg test measures part of what is harmful to your body? Aside from the impact within the gut, I'm particularly interested in understanding what our doctors have called an overall inflammatory response...
    Interesting to know. I am not scientific but understand what your saying and reaction varies in individuals response to gluten. Those very sensitive and some not so much. I think the damage does happen regardless of whether your body reacts to it. I may be wrong but I try to read everything and try not to ingest any.
