Curious....why didn't you go to a doctor and get a blood test? from what I have seen with Enterolabs, everyone gets a positive result. :).


Primarily because from searching around the internet, it sounded as though blood tests were not as reliable (a link from an article on this site) and in my mind it did seem reasonable that if there was an issue with something related to the antibodies in the digestive tract, it made more sense to look there before those made their way into the blood stream. In my case, I don't think the test showed a positive for Celiac, which I'm quite happy about. With regard to everyone getting a positive result from Enterolab, I think a reasonable answer might be that individuals who have symptoms which align with gluten intolerance/sensitivity are the ones requesting the test. Could there be false positives? Possible. From my readings, I've seen a lot of information about false negatives from blood tests as well.

If the results from the stool testing had indicated Celiac then my next step would have been to move to the blood testing and/or the biopsy testing.
