I just got these results

TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE ANTIBODY, IGA

TTG ANTIBODY, IGA <3 Reference Range: <5 U/mL negative

GLIADIN ANTIBODY (IGA) 14 Reference Range: <11 U/mL negative, 11-17 Equivocal, >17 positive

IMMUNOGLOBULIN A 404 Reference Range: 81-463 mg/dL

My young daughter was diagnosed after positive blood test and endoscopy earlier this year. She is gluten free but the rest of the family eats far less gluten then we did before her diagnosis.

Doctor says to follow up with GI doc.

Any advise.

I'd say there is a good chance you have celiac since you have a daughter diagnosed with it. If you are wanting a biopsy then stay on gluten until it is done. Even if it isn't celiac, you still could be gluten intolerent. Worth trying the diet with her after you have completed any more wanted testing.

Your Dr. is offering good advice to follow up with GI doc. Anti-gliadin probably means you're gluten sensitive but you might not have damage or autoimmunity. You probably need a biopsy to figure out what's going on. Good luck!
