Your results should include normal ranges. Can you post the ranges as well?

Lab ranges do vary, but if your DGP IgA was in fact positive, you should see a Gastroenterologist to obtain biopsies via endoscopy to confirm a celiac disease diagnosis.  

I can tell you that I personally only had a positive DG IgA and the rest of the celiac blood tests were negative, yet my biopsies revealed severe intestinal damage.

They didn’t provide me with the normal range.

Which one you mean DGP IgA, is it Anti Gliadin IgA?

Lab results are useless without ranges so call your doctor and ask for a hard copy of the results. I'm guessing they just gave you a number over the phone.

Yes.  The anti-gliadin test was an older test that has been discontinued in the US.  The newer deamidated gliadin peptide (DGP) is now being used.  However, some labs just call it anti-gliadin.   It is confusing!  I suppose they did not want to type more words!   Chances are the newer test was given.  Even if the older test was given, it is still a valid test.  A little less sensitive, etc. but still good.  

Lab ranges can vary, so check with the lab or your doctor to determine a positive result.  

Learn more about the possibility of an elevated (positive) DGP  versus a TTG:
