Hi Nukapai,
I assume today you're having your tests so this may be late but may offer some consolation if you are concerned about the results.

I was gluten-free for 3 months before my blood tests and still showed positive anti-bodies.

good luck!

Yeah, had the test today - they took three vials of blood :blink:

Thanks - your story reassures me. :)

I don't really know WHAT to hope for - I guess a positive result would be a mixed bag, on the other hand, I would have to give up my favourite foods, but on the other hand, I would be free from so much .... and my life would improve immensely.

It'll take 10 days for the results, so in the meantime, I am just going to try gluten-free and see how I feel.

I know how to find out if you have celiac but I was just wondering sence they're similar how do you do which is which ? Do they do some alergy test for gluten intolerent .I asked my gi doctor if they could find out but sticking the little needles in you and hes like no .So I was just wondering how they find out .thanks lynds

He told you it can't be determined by a blood test?! essentially you're testing for the same thing as for celiac
If the antibodies (IgG/IgA) indicate an intolerance to gluten, then how can raised levels of this NOT let you know?
