    Question Possible Celiac?? Results in the "Grey" Need Advice.

    Hello Everyone

    I am looking for some advice. I'm very new to the topic of gluten sensitivities, celiac, and gluten intolerances.

    I have a very sensitive stomach. I under went to endoscopys back in 2008/2009 from over taking to much advil. It had caused a peptic ulcer and since then have been on and off Prilosec OTC. I have waves of health where I'm feeling fine and then waves of flare up depending on diet and acid production- multi factor agents...stress/flu it comes and goes.

    This past flare sent me to the ER. Anyways, After blood tests ( all healthy normal ) no blood in stool (yay) and a CT scan showing a perfectly healthy inside- I went home and returned to my usual regime of Prilosec OTC, a bland low acid diet and rest. My follow up with the GI specialist was soon after. He increased my Prilosec OTC and had a Celiac Blood Panel done to rule that out. That is where I need some help.

    I had the ttg blood test and scored a 6.
    They say 0-3 is neg
    4-9 is in the grey
    10 and higher is positive for Celiac.

    Is anyone familiar with this test? Anyway the only way to rule out Celiac is to get a biopsy through endoscopy. My gi doc said it is mildly elevated.
    Does this lean to me not having Celiac? Could this mean I have elevated antibodies to a gluten sensitivity? I would rather not under go another endoscopy if I do not have too. Im confused with my results and hope someone with a better understanding of this can help me.

    Thank you for reading and taking the time to help me out.
