Hi, need some help interpreting my TTG results




I have read that 4-10 TTG IGA is a weak positive, but the lab indicates anything under 20 is negative. Tons of Celiac symptoms, so I am leaning towards a positive. Any advice/feeback would be appreciated :)

You have to go by your own lab values and not one published by another lab.  It appears that your result is negative and that you are not IgA deficient.  The Immunoglobulin A (IgA) test is run as a control test to determine if other IgA tests are accurate (e.g. the TTG IgA).  

You can ask for the rest of the panel.  I personally have never had an elevated TTG or an EMA but only the DGP.  My biopsies obtained via endoscopy confirmed my diagnosis.  

Oh, if you suspected celiac disease, did you by chance alter your diet (went gluten free) prior to the tests?  That can cause a negative result.
