Hey Lyndszai: I couldn't vote because you didn't include a category for those of us who went gluten-free as soon as we suspected we had gluten intolerance/celiac and then tested later with Enterolab (while still gluten-free). Maybe that's info for another poll and I just have to skip this one. :blink: I went to a naturopath 5 days after I started avoiding gluten, hoping for tests. Rather than giving me blood/biopsy tests, he persuaded me to just keep following the gluten-free diet and listen to my body. However, my intermittent gluten 'slips' and recurring symptoms made me want more conclusive evidence that gluten was really causing my problems. So I tested with Enterolab 8 weeks after going gluten-free and my results STILL showed positive gluten AND casein antibodies, positive autoimmune reaction to tissue transglutaminase and one of the main genes for celiac. I wonder how many others used E-lab after being gluten-free a while and how long they were gluten-free before testing. <_< OKAY, I'll do my own poll and not mess up yours. :D

I was diagnosed and had the tests before I ever went gluten-free so I wasn't sure what to put

I went back on gluten for two months for the biopsy, and it was negative. I was hoping it would be enough time, but according to Dr. Peter Green (Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center) it takes 3-6 months or longer to be really accurate. And I've read in Dangerous Grains by James Braly and Ron Hoggan that it can take up to 5 years to cause enough severe damage for most doctors to diagnose Celiac.

Two months was enough for me. I got so sick and it took longer than two months for me to really start feeling better. I wouldn't recommmend it to anyone, unless you really have to. But I am glad to have gotten the biopsy anyhow, since if I ever have another done it may show improvement when the slides are compared.

God bless,

Mariann
