Has anyone heard of this DNA test kit for celiac, and do you know anything about it? http://glutenfreehel...celiac-disease/
I've seen a few different references to it now in my researching. It's supposed to be more thorough and 100% accurate. My alpha-gliadin IgA gluten test came back high and I just read on an article in this site that this test is 97% accurate for diagnosing celiac disease (and not just gluten sensitivity); is that correct? I have several autoimmune conditions and definitely react negatively to gluten with bloating, stomach pain and discomfort and arthritis very soon after eating it. I thought I had gluten sensitivity and have stayed away from it but am not ultra-diligent. However, after reading that, I'm wondering if I should take it more seriously and be more careful at restaurants, with cross-contamination, etc. I want to keep my autoimmune reactions as well controlled as possible.

Thank you!! :)

Check if you can get sample results. Check to see if they explain the result. I used another company and was given an explanation of what the test means and counseled on diet. I felt they were very generous.

That's a good idea Diana, thank you. What company did you use and was it recent?

The forum won't let me say. They say this company spammed them. But I did have a good experience, so I don't quite understand it. I tried to PM you, but it showed up back in my own box. ?

I would think that if your alpha-gliadin IgA gluten test came back high, then your doctor would order further testing.
