I have been gluten, wheat, and dairy free now since the first part of January 2004. I feel great, have lost weight with excersise, ect, but am wondering something:
I have not had the blood test...and since I have a heck of a cold now, I might be going to the doctor to see if it's upper resperatory. While there, I like to address as many concerns as I can and my doc is always willing to listen.
Should I ask about the celiac test? I have also thought about calling my allergist and talking to him about the test for celiac. I did not test allergic to wheat, but he said that based on my symptoms (I would have diahreea after the first meal of the day, lots of gas, and diahreea was a common event in my life), I should try it. Well, I've tried it and I feel better and so this has prompted me to think about the blood test.
I had an endoscopy, and that biopsy was normal and so was my colonoscopy. So, would it hurt to get the blood test?

Since you have not been ingesting gluten, your body won't be producing antibodies for the gluten. Therefore your blood tests will come back negative. In order to get the testing, you need to be eating gluten products. Best of luck!!
Gluten Free since 12-31-2002!!

I dont know about you but I donthave the guts or the time to sit in a bathroom all day in pain practically dying just to get a positive result. Ive heard youd have to eat gluten (about 4 slices of bread a day) in order to get the right amount to damage the villi enough for accurate results... I think thats bull. I have a daughter that I have to raise.. I cant sit in a bathroom all dang day!
