What Does Aga Igg Value Mean?

Recommended Posts

My daughter's pedi GI said they never order AGA IgG (but they do send AGA IgA)...he said the AGA IgG is worthless. I know from these forums it isn't worthless, but why? How does that value help with the diagnosis of celiac? I'd like to be informed for the next time I speak with him. Thanks!
