Blood Results Not Celiac, Could It Be Gluten Sensitivity?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My blood work is finally back and I am not positive for celiac disease, however I'm wondering if there's any indication of possible sensitivity.

tTG IgA <2 (reference 0-3)

Gliadin Peptide IgA 16 (reference 0-19)

Gliadin Peptide IgG 2 (reference 0-19)

Obviously none of my tests are positive and they didn't my total IgA levels like I had requested. I'm not sure whether or not the elevated IgA levels mean anything or if I'm just plain old good to go.

Thank you!

I'd ask for the full celiac panel. They're missing ttg-IgG and EMA, and the total serum IgA as you stated. My bloodwork came out negative, but I was diagnosed based on minimal damage on a biopsy, positive gene test, and positive reaction to a gluten-free diet. Currently, there aren't any tests to detect a sensitivity. If after all testing is done, celiac is ruled out, then if you positively react to a gluten-free diet, the diagnosis of NCGI (non celiac gluten intolerance) is given. Good luck!

That DGP IgA is pretty close to abnormal so I would not trust it completely. If you do decide to keep eating gluten, I would retest periodically as test scores can change.


To be honest, I think there is a chance that you could have celiac disease because of your symptoms and because you have a child that has tested positive. Celiac runs in families, and those tests can miss people. My family has the reverse situation were I have a diagnosis but my boys do not even though 2/3 had symptoms.  I assumed they had celiac disease, although it could have bee NCGI, but either way going gluten-free was the solution and their health has improved.


An elevated total serum IgA does not have any relationship to celiac disease as far as I know. I could be wrong though.
