Could someone please help interpret my husbands bloodwork the doctor says it suggests celiac. And the doc thinks he does have celiac deliseas. He also has the symptoms! I believe he has celiac, we have just been told wrong in the past that we are kind uneasy when it comes to doctors... He's been gluten  free since having the test done. It's been 2 weeks and he's feeling some better! Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.  Well, you really need to get a hold of the test results.  I can not tell which celiac test was given (TTG or DGP) and the lab ranges are not clear.  What I can tell you that if he has a positive on any of the celiac tests, he should be referred to a Gastroenterologist and he should be on a gluten diet.  All celiac testing (blood and intestinal biopsies) require a patient to be on a daily diet of gluten.  In as little as two weeks, testing results can be negative if the patient is gluten free.  

Symptoms for celiac disease tend to overlap with other autoimmune issues, so testing is required for a diagnosis.  

I encourage you to learn more about celiac disease testing here:
