I have had bloating, gas, nausea, exhaustion, anxiety, stomach pain (varying intensity), and stool issues.  I went to the doctor and they did the blood tests. 

Endo IgA- negative

TTG - 1

Gliadin IgA and IgG- positive high for antibodies (20 and 24)

 

I can't get into gastro until the end of July.  What do you think they will recommend as the next steps?

Like me, it appears that you tested positive to only the DGP.  The next recommended (by celiac experts) is an endoscopy to confirm a diagnosis.

You have to remain on a gluten-containing diet though.  July can be a long wait if you are sick.  Call daily to see if there are any cancellations so that you can see a GI sooner.
