Go to www.enterolab.com and click on FAQ Result Interpretation. That will give you enterolab's full explanation of all the tests.

As I understand it, the antigliadin IgA tells you whether you have 'active' gluten sensitivity going on. Any score under 10 is considered normal/negative. The Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA is another similar reaction that indicates the same thing. Both of them indicate that damage is already being done and enterolab would tell you to go gluten free.

Any score above 10 is considered by them to be positive for active gluten sensitivity. 35 would certainly be considered a 'positive' score. :)
