Anti-gliadin is an antibody for gliadin (part of the gluten molecule). If you have it, your body has identified gluten as an enemy.

Tissue-transglutaminase is an enzyme that works on gluten. If you have an antibody against it, your body has identified one of your own enzymes as an enemy (hence the label auto-immune disorder).

High numbers mean that you had a high concentration of these antibodies in your stool (although Dr. Fine believes that high numbers don't necessarily correlate to more severe symptoms). If you stop eating gluten, these numbers will come down.
