It only takes o e positive to move forward in the diagnostic process.  Keep eaten gluten.  The next step is usually a GI referral to obtain biopsies via endoscopy.  An elevated TTG can be due to other autoimmune issues.  Not sure of your lab ranges, so not sure if your positive was REALLY elevated or not.  What was the other test?

IGA is used to verify that TTG IGA results are valid. So a high TTG IGA means you should have an endoscopy done by a gastroenterologist  to verify if you have celiac.

Thanks for the feedback.
