It looks (no ranges provided) like have two positives (TTG and EMA) on the celiac panel (I think you made a typo on the "TTA".  The IGA serum (in the case of celiac testing) is just a control test to see if the TTG IGA test is valid.  With two positives it is unlikely that your Hashi's is creating a false negative.  

A biopsy is the next step (sounds like this has been done).  Keep eating gluten daily until you have finished all testing.  I would not worry about "what ifs".  Just move forward with the diagnostic procedure.  If it turns out to be celiac disease, learn all that you can about the gluten free diet.  Even if negative, you might consider the diet.  The small intestine is the size of a tennis court if stretched out.  Easy to miss damaged areas.  Hopefully your GI took plenty of samples.  

Hang in there.  It is tough waiting!

I too, have Hashi's and I was anemic when diagnosed.  I was shocked.  I had no noticeable gut issues at the time.  My anemia resolved with a gluten-free iron supplement in just a few months.   I hope you feel better soon!

Thank you.   Biopsy was positive for celiac.  I held off on starting diet this week.  Now the research and healthy eating begins.   Guess I move on to post diagnosis for any questions. Thank you again.
