Looks like your test results are negative.

The doctor also failed to run two very important parts of the test, the total IgA and the tTG.

Do you have symptoms? What brought you to be tested for Celiac?

You can still have a problem with gluten that isn't Celiac. Or, you could have a non-gluten related problem. Or both.

Thanks for the response. I had to jump through hoops just to get my doctor to give me the tests. And then he never sent the results. I had to call the nurse to get them as usual and she told me she had no idea what they meant. Nice, huh?

I have many of the symptoms and I've been gluten free for about 2 weeks (less than 1 one the test was done). I've also been a type 1 diabetic for 20 years. Things are improving after being gluten free. I'm getting the Enterolab full screening done. I ordered it yesterday.

I don't know what the test results mean, but my brother's tests all came back normal -- and he had the endoscopy. But if he eats gluten, he gets quite sick. Let us know how the Enterolab test goes!
