Can anyone answer this...

I'm curious about something... in a gluten-free person, why would it take several weeks (months) of eating gluten to cause a rise in ttg, yet even a slight amount of gluten causes a physical reaction?  What causes that physical reaction?  I thought it was the body's immune system reacting to the gluten, but doesn't that imply that auto-antibodies are being produced (i.e., ttg)?

The tests test for the antibodies in the blood stream.  It can take a while to build up enough antibodies in the blood to register on a test.
