What does a “weak positive” blood test result for celiac disease mean?

Each lab defines “weak positive” differently. Unfortunately, diagnosis is not always a clear cut positive or negative. If you receive a weak positive, please work with your medical professional to determine the next best course of action. The diagnosis of celiac disease is like an iceberg; the obvious, symptomatic, yet smallest, part of it exists above the water visible to all, but the majority of those with active disease have no visible symptoms at all.
