Can coming down with a cold around the time of an ttg IgA test screw up the test results?. My results were IgA =78 and igg= 94 . Positive for Celiacs.

Not likely: Cold would not materially affect the results of serum immunoglobulin results.

Highly likely: Do note that your symptoms may not improve noticeably for weeks or months after avoiding gluten. So don't be impatient.

Depends on symptoms: If severe symptoms a biopsy is always the gold standard for diagnosis.if mild may just want to do the gluten free diet.
