It doen't say you are celiac. In fact, we don't know for sure that we are, we just suspect as the symptoms match up and it is the whole family. The test simply told us some things to try to eliminate. Eliminating gluten made a big difference. Essentially, I am saying that I am grateful for the IGG test as it led us to forums like this, and we are getting better.
How could an IgG test say that it was celiac? My daughter and I have had this done. Twice she tested positive for gluten and wheat and once for spelt. But it never said anything about celiac and now wheat, gluten and spelt are not problems for her.

This article makes me angry. Says the testing may not be accurate but doesn't say why. Just like celiac testing may not be accurate. Because if you don't eat gluten prior to the test it may not be!
This article has caused people to call me crazy and say I'm am idiot for believing my test results.
I just know that I got better after the test. YMMV.
I agree. I was food tested for IGG and it helped me. I never would have figured out tapioca, turmeric, nutmeg, and artificial flavors were a problem? I know it is true because I write down everything I eat and how i feel. There was a definite connection. I did the test several months later and found out I can eat these things again, but now have problems with honey and a few other things. Meanwhile my gut is healing and eventually I will not have these food problems anymore. It is so important to rotate your food, which then you get different nutrients. I know many celiacs who are good with their diets but are still suffering from food sensitivities. They have brain fog or are easily crabby. I did the Elisa Food testing and you can go through them with your own doctor. Look up "Better Lab tests now" You get a kit and your doctor can do the blood draw.
