I'm very interested in this... My doctor also had me avoid the test, saying their wasn't a genetic history for Celiac for me. Apparently having more proof before hand justifies the expense more to him, but he suggested I try the gluten free diet. Almost a year later, and it's working great for me. However, my symptoms just kicked in from something I ate (I'm not overly careful when I go out to eat) and now I don't know what it is. So-my question for you with the testing experience...
How long do you have to regularly consume gluten for, in order to take the tests efficiently?
I read somewhere that six months, ingesting gluten every day (I believe they said a slice of bread/day), was the best way to get accurate results. Any other thoughts?
Nausea/gas/migraines/muscle pain for six months doesn't sound appealing. I'm not even handling the first day of it well.
