Celiac Test Results - Plz someone Help
Doctor wasn't much help in telling me either way; basically could be or couldn't be.  

Genetics:
HLA-DQ2 - Positive

HLA-DQ8 - Negative

I have seen where around 90% Celiacs are DQ2 Positive, but not all DQ2 Positive are Celiacs or something like that.

Antibodies:
TTG Antibody, IGA - <3 (Negative because 10, so could be positive
    - States "TNP-Reflex testing not required" at bottom

Could someone who has been tested or knows about testing/results please give me some insight?  I would like to know if 158 mg/dL is positive or not and what it means if is along with the positive genetic marker.  My doctor does not know much about it and has dismissed the antibodies as all being negative, and I am not so sure that is correct yet.

Thank you

Cut part of my message out: IGA, Serum or TTG Antibody, IGG result was 158 mg/dL (can't tell which one because columns are out of line)

Looks like reference range for IGA serum was 81-463 so would be normal, but positive for IGG is >10 so would be positive.  I don't know which one it goes for, but states "TNP-Reflex testing not required" at bottom.

Thanks
