For the Anti-Gliadin antibodies and the Tissue Transglutaminase antibodies, you need to tell us the reference ranges the lab uses or we won't be able to figure it out either :D The raw numbers by themselves mean nothing.

Under anti-gliadin it says 0.0 to 10.0

Then for the Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA S it says <4.0 (negative)

Ab, IgG, S is <.6.0 (negative)

Your test results were all firmly in the negative side of things. :( or :) . That is :) because you don't have celiac and :( because you may be non-celiac gluten intolerant.

I think i could be intolerant. I was gluten free since September and started eating gluten for the few weeks before the test and during those weeks my gut felt like it was being ripped apart from eating it.

Your gluten challenge may not have been long enough to activate enough antibodies, either, depending on how many weeks you actually ate it :( But your reaction when reintroduced obviously showed you that you are intolerant if not actually celiac. Fear not! Many of us on here are not officially diagnosed. I was not even tested, in fact. The good thing is that you don't need a diagnosis, a doctor's prescription, anything other than a little willpower, to eat gluten free. You've done gluten-free already, you know what gluten does to you, you've tried for the diagnosis. Now it's time to move on to a better life. :)

I totally agree Mushroom. Thanks for your help. I didnt notice much of a difference when I went gluten free because immediately thereafter my life was filled with stress from my father in law dying to my mother dying. So i may have felt better but who knows. Where I noticed the difference, as said, was adding it back. Plus I gained weight and my stomach is all bloated again. That bloating had gone done. Ok so now I just need to get back on track.
