    I have not been eating much gluten lately, which wasn't on purpose..but I noticed positive changes and am now hipping to get tested for it...I KNOW it's celiac..I'm so positive..but I need the proof or my parents won't believe me. I've been eating so much bread, getting ready for my doctors appointment...but I'm just so scared that my test will be negative..or that he won't even listen to me when I tell him what I think I have!!

    What should I say to him, and what tests should I request?? This is very important to!!

    The celiac tests are:


    TTG IgA and TTG IgG

    DGP IgA and DGP IgG

    EMA IgA

    total serum IgA (a control test)

    AGA IgA and AGA IgG (older tests)


    Remember that non-celiac gluten intolerance (NCGI) is much more common than celiac disease. It has all of the same symptoms, and the same negative effect on your helth, but it does not involve the damage to the intestines (so celiac tests will be negative). If your celiac tests end up being negative, NCGI is a possibility - unfortunately the only test is a positive response to the gluten-free diet.


    Good luck with the doctor!
