After going gluten-free I could tell a difference within a few days. The first thing I noticed, the abdominal pain was GONE!!! It takes some people longer to begin to feel better than others so enjoy your "new health"!!!!

Great news! I hope you feel better forever!
However, I want to just caution you ahead of time... Since the Enterolab tests do not provide a diagnosis that is recognized by most doctors, insurance companies, IRS, etc, etc, you may wish to continue to ingest gluten until you get your results back. If they come back positive, this will allow you to pursue an official diagnosis from a gastroenterologist.
Unfortunately, the "official" diagnostic tests require you to be on a diet containing gluten. If you go gluten free now, and then try to get a gastro diagnosis months from now, the tests may come back negative.
For all the explanations and reasons for why to get an official diagnosis, see the discussion titled "Why to get a diagnosis" in this same section. Furthermore, you must consider the impact that a proper diagnosis for you will have on your son.
