Every lab has different ranges, so you can't figure it out based on your score. If he thinks you have Celiac, you probably were positive on the EMA or tTG test.

Call your doctor and find out:

Name of each test

Reference Range for each test

Your result for each test

These are the tests that should have been done, but often, doctors don't run them all. (from: http://www.celiacdiseasecenter.columbia.ed...05-Testing.htm)

Anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) IgA

Anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) IgG

Anti-endomysial antibodies (EMA) - IgA

Anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTG) - IgA

Total IgA level

i think you probably had the same test that I had done, and mine was over 90, she said 20 was normal. I think they are testing for IgA antibodies. Next is the biopsy, hopefully it is not a long wait to get that done, If it is than I am starting the diet now, because who wants to continue killing themselves with gluten.
