Google Iga and celiac. Go gluten free. I was diagnosed with celiac and discovered my IGA levels were so low. Actually zero. If they test for celiac and you come up negative. It is because the use the IGA in your blood. If your levels are so low. Then you will have a false negative for celiac.

Hello @jean9v, Welcome to Connect. Thank you for sharing this information. I thought I would share a reference on the topic since new members are not able to post links for a short period of time after joining Connect.

"Is IgA high or low in celiac disease?
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency is 10 to 15 times more common in patients with celiac disease (CD) than in healthy subjects. Serological tests have become the preferred methods of diagnosing CD in both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients."
