Brief Answer:
Could be inflammatory bowel disease.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query,
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.
As per your query answers are-
There is a ulcers in terminal part of her ileum which could be suggestive of inflammatory bowel disease also therefore tests like IGA and IGG are suggested to her.Iron deficiency anemia could be due to loss of blood from ulcer.
Right now i would say that we should keep our fingers crossed till we have results of IGAand IGG with us.
It could be inflammatory bowel disease.

Just mildly elevated.

Detailed Answer:
Hello my dear patient,
Have seen the reports.
IgG is just mildly elevated and i don’t think its related to inflammatory bowel disease.
I don’t think it ulcerative coilitis or celiac.
