First off, thank you so much for this page., it has helped me immensely in the last year. I need the  communities help me understand my test results and wether or not I should get a biopsy done. My t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA was <2 or negative, BUT my Immunoglobin A, Qn Serum was 64 Low. I have read that is can cause a false positive. "In some cases, the TTG IgA test result can be “false negative” – that is, results come back negative, even though celiac disease is actually present. False negatives can occur for various reasons, but the best known cause is a condition called IgA deficiency that people are born with. This immunodeficiency occurs in about one in 600 healthy individuals but is much more common in those with celiac disease." I have been gluten free for the last year and feeling a lot better.
It seems the next step would be the endoscopy and biopsy. How important is it to get a firm diagnosis of Celiacs for my health, if i just continue to eat gluten free? Thank you, Nicole
