I guess that means either the four tests missed celiac disease, or it somehing thats normaly found with gluten like Dairy, eggs, etc. BAH. Why cant this be easy????? Maybe that test kit I ordered from Great Plains Labs will have a clue in it, I just hope I can get my doc to sign off on it so that its covered.
I have had the skin prick test for jsut about every food I eat and non of them should any re-action at all.

I just recently read a post by a lady on a Dutch celiac board where she'd had three rounds of tests (blood&endo), and only the last one detected damage. It had just not progressed far enough before then to be detectable. Kudos to her and her doctors to keep testing I must say. Although personally, I would have gone gluten-free long before that (as I did, lol).
hang in there,

So your tests are negative for celiac disease, however, you may have gluten intolerance without any detectable damage. I still think you should remain gluten free.
I had a mini cheesecake when I was intending to have a biopsy and I was fine BUT then I had 2 slices of bread and thought I was going to die. Took 10 days to fully recover. Specialist says the absolute worst thing thing we gluten sensitive can eat is bread.
I have read a lot of your posts and it definitely sounds like you have a problem with gluten, especially with your son's history. He got it from somewhere!
My 2 cents worth. Hope you feel better soon!

Sorry to hear you have been feeling bad...since you know you have a problem with it and see even some improvement on the diet what is keeping you from following it? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by it. Even if it's just an intolerance and not celiac you definitely seem to have an issue...I hope you get feeling better here soon
Well if it was just me, probably would. But I ultimatly need to know if theres somthing else, for my son's sake. He seems to have inherited most of my umm "issues" so if theres some other intolernce here, I want to know to watch him for it too.
