So my husband had a celiac panel done (family history).  He has basically no gut symptoms.

His Gliaden Iga & Igg were negative.  His ttg Iga was negative.  However, his ttg Igg was elevated (28, normal less then 20).

He went to the GI dr who told him that having an elevated ttg Igg alone was no indication of celiac and that he does not have the disease.  He said that some people just have elevated ttg Igg for no reason.  There has to be a reason for the elevation, correct?  His cbc bloodwork was all normal. Dr said there is no need for further testing (ie, EMA, vitamin deficiencies or genetic testing).  Do you agree?

This is what a well respected celiac centre says:

but also see:

Maybe seek a second opinion? The EMA test seems like University of Chicago's preferred route. 

Best of luck to you both!
