Welcome!

 

Which IgG test?  It could be:

 

tTG-IgG

DGP-IgG

AGA-IgG

 

Can you provide the reference range -- labs uses different ranges, without the range we can't interpret the result.

Hi and Welcome to the forum -

 

Non-Celiac gluten intolerance will not elevate your antibody levels on the tests and there is not currently a reliable test for NCGI.  So if you have a positive result on the blood tests and/or biopsy results, then it indicates Celiac.  The colonoscopy is most likely to make sure nothing else in going on, while the endoscopy will include a biopsy and will test for Celiac in order to confirm an official diagnosis.  The biopsy from the small intestine (via the endoscopy) will also test for other possible issues, but that's the one that can confirm villi damage that is indicative of Celiac.

 

(As a side note... it is Celiac Disease - not "Celiacs" - people with Celiac are sometimes referred to as Celiacs.  :) )

Doesn't sound like you had any Celiac blood tests. You might want to request a full celiac panel. Glad you are getting an endo. Make sure they do lots of biopsies, even if they think it looks OK. celiac damage must be viewed by a pathologist with a microscope.

It sounds like your test may have been run through Quest Diagnostics.  Their website lists an "Allergen Gluten Igg" test but I don't see right off where it explains which test this actually is. 

This page explains the full Celiac panel of tests: http://www.questdiagnostics.com/home/physicians/testing-services/condition/celiac/starts_with_test

It also includes the actual test codes - so if you have the code for the test that was run you may be able to figure out which one it was.

 

But all that aside - I agree with Karen - you should request the full panel.
