Lab work came back

Hi all,

my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive. 

In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100.

it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok.

Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
