What is this test? This test is used to see if you have celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder. This means your body attacks itself. This test is also used to see how well people with the condition are doing. It is 1 of several blood tests that may be used to help diagnose celiac disease. Tissue transglutaminase is an enzyme that fixes damage in your body. People with celiac disease often make antibodies that attack this enzyme. These are called anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies. A blood test that shows higher levels of anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies can help your healthcare provider figure out if you have celiac disease. What other tests might I have along with this test? If your healthcare provider thinks you have celiac disease, they may order several other blood tests. These may look for generalized inflammation (C reactive protein or erythrocyte sedimentation rate) or poor absorption of nutrients (iron deficiency, low blood cell counts, or unabsorbed fat in stool).
