Negative DGP - Is It Normal to Make Some Antibodies?

Recommended Posts

Hi all - I kind of threw this on the end of a previous thread I started but thought I would start a new one for simplicity sake... 

I have been negative on all celiac blood tests. The tTg, and AGA tests were absolutely negative - like nothing at all registered there. DGP IGG was 2. 

My DGP IGA was 6 (0-19 is negative).

I'm curious - is it considered normal to have some DGP antibodies? Are there healthy people out there with absolutely no issue with gluten that have numbers like that? It seems that it would be concerning to have any numbers, but I totally concede that that could just be me grasping at straws :unsure:. At any rate, I'm curious if there's an actual answer. Thanks!
