how low do anti body levels need to drop before intestines heals?

for example.. if you're down to under 20 (tTG) IgA is the immune response weak enough to allow healing already?

This seems to vary greatly from person to person. There is no specific formula, and many doctors don't do follow up blood tests to see if a patients antibody levels have dropped. I've not see any studies that track such drops after going gluten-free. In theory they should begin dropping as soon as you are 100% gluten-free, and after a few months should be at or near zero IF your diet has been 100% gluten-free. The issue is that maintaining a 100% gluten-free diet, especially if you eat outside your home, is nearly impossible.
