I've gotten myself confused about testing...is ttg what I want? I am skeptical about biopsy, because its so dependent on biopsy location, and the reading of the biopsy itself.

I'm hoping to have the genetic component tested as well, and that's straight in my head, but the immune stuff I'm confused about. Help, please?

Thanks,

Laurel

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG

Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA

Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA

Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG

Total Serum IgA

This is a list direct from a Mod here named Mushroom.

I did a C&P from my thread so as to save it to a Word document.

I have previously been tested positive on the genetic screening, but then had an EGD that was totally negative.

Went gluten-free for a year and a half, with no changes basically.

I will be getting these same blood tests done for the first time next month hopefully, and be able to put this question to rest for myself once and for all.

Best wishes, and keep eating plenty of gluten until the tests.
