What Follow Up Blood Tests?
Posted 27 November 2010 - 01:40 AM
I've been gluten-free for several years now, but over the last few months, I haven't been feeling that great, and I think I've been getting small amounts of gluten in my diet. I'm going to get a full workup done at the doctor's office and wanted to know what tests I can request to see if I've been getting gluten in my system. And what tests would show things like malabsorption, inflammation, etc.
Thanks for your help!

Diagnosed with Celiac Disease April 2010. After endoscopy doc said "Aren't you glad?"
DD #1 ('99) tested negative on bloodwork but positive on 2 genetic markers. Went gluten free in July 2010 and has been symptom-free ever since!
DD #2 ('98) tested negative and has no symptoms. Didn't fork out money for genetic testing. Will watch and test regularly.
Husband tested positive in July 2010 and has refused to go gluten free. Uh huh, that's gonna bite him in the a** one day! (Pun intended!)
