Even if you test negative for celiac, you know you feel better eating gluten free. Remember to listen to your body. I'm very curious to see what will happen over the next decade as people begin to study what it means to be gluten intolerant, not just test positive for celiac. My mom, myself and my 7 year old have all tested negative for celiac (we had all been off gluten for several weeks before the test). My symptoms were pretty moderate compared to my mother's and daughter's. My mom nearly ended up in the emergency room after the waiter in a restaurant insisted the tortillas were gluten free. Even though my mother was skeptical she ate them. And we were convinced my daughter had cancer when we finally took her off gluten. I have a "before" picture of her. I'd love to post it here...maybe someday I will. Anyhow, serious business here. You need to be your own advocate on this journey I'm afraid. I'm fortunate that my husband has been so supportive and has even gone gluten free in the house. I honestly don't know if I could stay married to him if he was making fun of me for my symptoms. And certainly I'd leave if I thought my daughter's health were in jeopardy.
I've already told him that I will keep up the gluten free diet. He'll just have to deal with it. If I test positive for it, I will most definitely get both my daughters tested.
