The OP asked "how accurate were these IgG tests for you guys?"
I told her my experience.
I provided a few articles.
People can do what they want with the information.
I fear you think I am arguing against you for some reason. I assure you, I am not. I am all out of info.
Whatever anyone wants to do, they should do it.
Some people think they are valid. Some don't.
I don't know what the percentage is now re: celiac panels.
My tests were falsely negative. Repeatedly
So, based on that erroneous testing, and testing done by a "integrative doctor" that included this IgG testing--which also said I had no IgG anitbodies to wheat or gluten?--I was left to spiral down in my health so badly I was deathly ill and in horrific pain.
As a result, I have NO faith in any testing.
That's just me.
Again, if people want to do it, they should.
I WAS one of those people who was told for years to take drugs and SSRIs, etc. and I went outside the box to NDs and Holistic docs, blah blah blah...and it was celiac all along. Had I not been so persistent, I'd be dead.
I agree--hope they find a more accurate way to test.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.
