  1. To monitor dietary compliance, DGP is the preferred test rather than TTG. Other conditions can impact TTG levels and sometimes antibody levels can wax and wane without reason.
  2. That's right stayed on normal gluten diet. To be confident im not celiac, i will do another biopsy to make sure that the villous atrophy hasn't worsened. My case isn't rare from my research, just shows that celiac needs a more reliable test as blood tests & biopsy can be impacted by other conditions. False positives can be dangerous due to the restrictive diet and its impact on quality of live. My ttg was well over 100, so even a very large ttg has no meaning. https://journals.lww.com/jcge/Citation/2011/11000/Transient_Celiac_Autoimmunity_in_an_Adult.18.aspx "This patient demonstrated development and subsequent resolution of TTG, EMA, and DGP antibodies over a time frame of several months, with ongoing gluten consumption. We believe this to be the first documented adult case of transient seroconversion with reversion to normal of all celiac antibodies similar to the phenomenon documented in children at-risk for celiac disease. Transient celiac autoimmunity has significant implications for the validity of seroprevalence studies that use TTG and EMA to estimate celiac disease prevalence without confirmatory biopsy. In addition, transient celiac or gluten autoimmunity could account for a significant proportion of “false positive” antibody tests in which the timing of serology and biopsy (Fig. 1) does not coincide. This case illustrates the crucial importance of duodenal biopsy and close follow-up of those with normal biopsy results despite abnormal serologic findings. Temporary celiac autoimmunity can occur in adults, and further studies examining....."
  3. Yes the biopsy showed increased IELs and patchy villous atrophy. However the biopsy also showed giardia. I do also suffer from Osteoporosis, which made celiac seem likely given my age.
  4. Hi, I was wondering if anyone else on this forum has seen their blood results turn negative overtime on a normal diet? Below are my results. Im a male adult early 30s. August 2018 (Normal Gluten Diet) Anti-Gliadin IgG: 2.0 -Negative (Negative <=6.9 U/ml) Anti-Gliadin IgA: 1.6 -Negative (Negative <=6.9 U/ml) DGP IgA: 2.4 -Negative (Negative <=6.9 U/ml) tTG IgA: 6.0 Negative (Negative <=6.9 U/ml) Total IgA 328 Sufficient 68-514 mg/dL August 2016 (Celiac Diagnosed) tTG IgA: 486 U - Positive (Negative < 20.0) tTG IgG 8.6 U - Negative (Negative < 20.0) DGP IgA 31.4 U – Weak Positive (Negative < 20.0) DGP IgG 31.4 U – Weak Positive (Negative < 20.0) Gliadin IgA 16.0 U – Negative (Negative < 20.0) Gliadin IgG 18.0 U - Negative (Negative < 20.0) Wheat IgE 0.0 kU/L - Negative (Negative < 0.08) Immunoglobulin A (IgA) 3.25 g/L 0.66- 4.33
