A 37-year-old female asked:
Is immunoglobulin g (igg) test different than ttg igg test?
are results of these tests related at all? or is ttg igg test exclusive to celiac disease?
is ttg igg result related to any other disease/infection?

The total IGG test lists the amount of IGG in the blood at that point in time & usually reported as compared to upper/lower levels in the population targeted.TTG-IGG is the amount of IGG generated towards that particular factor & elevation suggests the possibility of Celiac disease. Confirmation is generally made by studying a sample of the digestive lining (biopsy) after proper gluten stimulation
