I am trying to figure out which blood testing to get, I talked to my doc and he doesn't directly do blood testing anymore so I would be working directly with a lab (I order the test, they draw the blood then tell me results).

I hope it is ok to post this here, there are different ones offered, all blood tests:

It is through requestatest .com search for celiac and the list comes up.

1) Tissue Transglutaminase, IgA Testing

(Tests for: Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG), IgA)

2) Tissue Transglutaminase, IgG Testing

(Tests for: tTG, IgG)

3) Celiac Disease Panel

(Tests for: Endomysial Antibodies, Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Antibodies, Total IgA)

4) Celiac Disease Antibody Screen

(Tests for: Deamidated gliadin IgA; tissue transglutaminase IgA; serum IgA quantitation)

5) Celiac Complete Panel

(Tests for: Deamidated gliadin IgA & IgG, tissue transglutaminase IgA & IgG, serum IgA quantitation)

6) Tissue Transglutaminase Tests, IgA and IgG,

(Tests for: tTG, IgA and tTG, IgG)

IMHO number 5, the complete panel would be the one to go with.

Yeah I was betting that would be the best one.

I wonder would the Celiac Disease Antibody Screen also be a good one? I know that one is missing the IgG. Isn't that the antibody that some people produce only that one and not the IgA? The cost looks a little less scary on that one vs the Celiac full panel, but then again the full panel might catch something the antibody screen does not.
