  1. I have been having symptoms of a gluten intolerance/celiac disease for the past 6 months. I went gluten-free for a month, and felt significantly better. I went back on gluten, though, so that I could be tested for celiac and was eating it for about 2 months prior to my blood test. I just got my results: -TISSUE TRANSGLUT. IGA - <3 (<5 = NEGATIVE, 5-8 = EQUIVOCAL, >8 = POSITIVE) -IMMUNOGLOBULIN A - 183 (STANDAND RANGE = 81-463) -GLIADIN ANTIBODY (IGA) - <3 (<5 = NEGATIVE, 5-8 = EQUIVOCAL, >8 = POSITIVE) I asked my doctor whether my IgG levels should be tested, but she said that they don't include IgG levels in their celiac panel, and that because I have normal IgA, a positive IgG would not make them suspicious. I just want to make sure that all of my bases have been covered--should I push for my IgG levels to be tested, or with these results, is celiac disease unlikely? Thanks!
