UK mum's Activity
UK mum added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsWhat Blood Tests Are Carried In The Us To Diagnose Celiac Disease?My daughter has had a blood test for celiac disease which came back negative. She was on a gluten diet for 6 weeks before the test, which was very difficult and she missed a lot of school. We were advised to continue the gluten diet for a further 6weeks and then the test would be repeated. We did not do this as it makes her feel very ill and low.
Are there different tests that are used in the US in which the patient does not need to be on a gluten diet for such a long time ?
