I went to the dr today for my acid reflux and asked if my test results were back for the gluten intolerance. She checked and said they came back negative - she said my levels were at 350 or something and the standard for a positive result was 500. What in the devil does that mean? She is not familiar with celiac disease nor with my history because I see a differenct dr every time I go. Can anyone tell me what that means? I was under the impression that there should have been 3 different tests and I told her that, but she said there was only one number there.
???
Thanks.

You should ask for a copy of the test results. Then you can check to see what test they ran and what the actual numbers are. It doesn't sound like it was one of the antibody tests, unless she was horribly in error and it really was in the 300's which would be a very high positive. Until you know exactly which test it was then you can't really know what is going on.

God bless,
