  1. so it says ttg antibody, iga < 3 was my results and < 5 is what they refrence as negative my immunoglobulin a was was 155 81-463 normal. These are the only labs she ran to say my celiac labs were negative. Can anyone help me with these?
  2. I have been having multiple celiac symptoms for going on 2 years. My labs according to my family practice doctor are negative for celiac. She sent me a GI doc in order for him to further evaluate. After my endoscopy he came out and told my husband that it looked very suspicious for celiac disease. However, he only took one biopsy which the pathologist made no note of villi or celiac. So I have been told this is just reflux. Since then I have been on Nexium and had my gallbladder removed yet my symptoms remain. I need a good doc who will listen and take the recommended biopsy so I can get a true diagnosis.
  3. I have been having symptoms of gas bloating diarrhea and constipation alternating fatigue headache low vit. d (extremely) boarder line low b12 and depression for the past 2 years. Last summer I had a celiac lab panel completed and the doctor said it was negative. I then had an upper endoscopy. The GI doc said that my bowel had a very smooth appearance and he suspected celiac. However, he only took one biopsy and then said the result came back negative. The pathologist never commented on the villi on his report. I am trying to decide whether just to go ahead and try going gluten free and seeing if it helps or if I need to push for more testing to get a valid negative test result. Any opinions?
