      To Biospsy Or Not To Biopsy? That Is The Question.
      I just got my Enterlab results this past week and have started a gluton free diet. I am wondering if I should wait, continue to eat gluton and go for a biopsy?

      Is there any benefit outside of peace of mind to a biopsy? (Insurance etc..)
      Is the procedue dangerous in any way?
      Should I just consider my results below from EnteroLab as final and just continue my gluten-free diet without ever doing a biopsy?

      Any advice would be great:)

      Is It Possible To Feel Better After Just A Few Days?
      I went on a Gluton free diet yesterday.

      My bloating has subsided and I feel lighter in my stomach area (if that makes sense).
      My legs are still wildly restless but fell a little better.

      Is this all in my head or could I actually start to feel better in day 2?

      I appreciate the candor.

      How certain can I be that my results are correct based on the enterolab results?

      Also would any suggest doing a biospsy so the answer is more clear?

      I have never had a health issue so this is all new to me and somewhat scary.

      So your saying I am not yet Celiac based on these results?..
      What do my results indicate outside of what the report says?
      Do I need to be 100% strict or can I be flexible as my results don't indicate a severe case?

      Entero Results, Gluton Senstive? What Do I Do Now?
      I had a blood test come back that was described by my doctor as "Borderline Celiac" .. He had me come back for more blood test and then said everything was fine. Strangely enough I have been having some symptoms that could be Gluton related which was why I took a blood test in the first place (Numbness in legs, foggy brain, stomach issues).

      I had an EntroLab test done and my results are as follows:
      Fecal Anti-Gliadin IGA: 14 Units (Normal is less than 10)
      Fecal Transglutaminase IGA: 11 Units (Normal is less than 10)
      Fecal Anti-casein IGA: 11 Units (Normal range is lees than 10)
      HLA-DQB 1 Molecular Allele 1 0202
      HLA-DQB 1 Molecular Alele 2 0609
      Seroligcal equivalent HLA-DQ 2,1 (Subtype 2,6)

      I read the interpretations by Enterolab but am not sure what this means and what to do now. It indicates I am Gluton Sensitive but does that mean I just sensitive and not Celiac?.

      Confused and need help:)..
