Ttg???

  1. I had a lab test (blood) called a Ttg. I couldn't read the MD's writing, so when I got to the lab, I asked the lady. She said it was Ttg, but had no idea what it was for. She said it stood for "tissue" something something (all I could remember was tissue). So I have looked all over and cannot find a thing about it. Anyone heard about it? Thanks.

    ....A new test used to detect an antigen called tissue transglutaminase (tTG) is now in use. It is a simpler test to use and may be as accurate as the EMA test.4 The tTG test is more accurate than the AGA test in detecting celiac sprue.5 The tTG test may eventually replace both the AGA and EMA tests and may be used to screen large populations of people suspected of having celiac sprue.
