Re: celiac disease...what is it?
Here's the tests I had--I had the Gliadin IgA (slightly positive)
Gliadin IgG (negatvie)
and TtG negative.
My bone density test showed little problem, I had no anemia and no deficiencies.
So, for myself we went with a wait and see attitude.
You are more brave than I am, I refused any tube down the throat because according to research I did on the web, I am in the less likely to have Celiac category.
If you have the Endoscopy, make sure you read up on it (they must take a certain number of biopsy samples in order to get good results.) You can still have negative biopsy with Celiac, you can have negative blood tests with Celiac. It's all rather up in the air. In my case, we decided to run a blood test every few years to see if anything changes. However, if you had all positive blood tests, best to check it out.
Keep us posted.
