 My general Dr. did a Celiac test and he said i have it. I Scheduled a appointment with a gastro. to confirm but here are the results:
TIS Transglut AB, IGA  1.2
TIS Transglut AB, IGG  13.1
What does this mean?   why is only one  high? Do i have it for sure?  Please give me more info!!

Tissue Transglutaminase antibodies are generated by the intestinal tract when one has Celiac Disease and is eating gluten (gluten triggers the generation of these antibodies).  It is a pretty specific test for Celiac, so there is a strong likelihood that you have it if this test result comes back positive.  If a person has total IgA deficiency (more common in Celiac patients than the general population), then only the IgG antibodies will show positive.  Your GI doctor should be able to tell you more info about this, too.  And for a good resource, check out http://www.theglutenfile.com/
