positive??/negative?? Received an email and of course DOC

I recently had some blood work done from my rheumatologist. She ran a wide range of tests. I was previously diagnosed with Fibro. I have a hard time with that diagnosis, not because I don't think it's a real and awful disease, but because it's what doctors told my sister she had for years and she's no longer alive. (Pretty much I'm paranoid)

Here's my test results for the Celiac sprue panel

GLIADIN IGG- 15.75. Range <15 u/ml
GLIADIN IGA- 102. Range <15 u/ml
ENDOMYSIAL IGG AB- negative
ANTIRETICULIN AB IGA- negative

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Anti gliadin antibody is positive. You need anti tissue transglutaminase antibody titre as well as endoscopy with biopsy if needed to confirm celiac.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
