I am going to see an MD for a dx in a few weeks. I am told to stay on my gluten free diet until I see him.

Can someone provide an accurate list of lab tests by name do I can discuss these when I see him.

I have read look the sections and haven't come across a specific list.

Thanks for helping me out.

This is a web page and fact sheet from the Chicago Celiac Center that explains the testing.

If you are gluten free, the testing will likely be negative.........

Oh, wow I read the original post wrong. Yes, you cannot be tested for celiac if you've been on the gluten-free diet for too long. The antibodies go away. You need to eat a full gluten diet for a couple months to be sure you get a positive result.
