What can cause elevated TTG besides celiac?

I could be wrong about this because I am still learning, but I think Crohn's can sometimes cause elevations. My son had elevated tTg levels, and they are doing an upper and lower scope to look for both of these things. He is not too happy about this!

But she don't have any other symptoms like stomach pain ++ :unsure:

The gastroscopy did not show a clear celiac gut. It was like it was celiac some places and some places not.

I'm not going to say my son has never had stomach pain before, but it is not his defining symptom, either. He originally was being looked at for a possibly arthritic to. They did an ANA panel, and that was raised, then among all the tests they happened to do aceliac screen as well, and that came back positive, too. His ANA was high for IBD (among a bunch of ther ofther junk, too- that's why they're looking at a few things).

I know it's weird, and frustrating when you don't have a clear answer.

Celiac damage (blunted villi) can be patchy like you describe.
