First off, thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and reply.
Anyway, I am thinking of getting some sort of "diagnoses". I really do NOT want to get out there and eat a whack load of gluten as I have been gluten-free since April. Hence the reason I don't want a standard blood test. I already KNOW that I am, at the very least, NCGS. I don't really need the dx to tell myself that I shouldn't eat gluten. However, I DO feel it would be nice to have at least something solid so I can say to others, "hey, I am NCGS" as per dx. You know? I just feel that some of the eyerollers might finally get it. You know? I mean, hey, if I had diabetes no one would doubt me (or any of us) but for some reason gluten sensitivities or celiac is perceived, by NON-gluten sensitive people, as a 'popular' thing to have. It's utterly ridiculous that we have to "prove" something like this.
I hope I am making sense with my line of reasoning. I am typically not someone who particularly cares what others think but food affects soooo much in life. EVERY social gathering is food-related. Every family dinner is food-related. Every time you pass the sample table at Costco and someone says to you, "oh, it's just a sample" is food-related. And it all gets to a point where you want to shake the other people who do not "get it". I guess I just want something that I can point to as proof of my suspicions.
Anyway, does anyone have a recommended lab outside of Enterolab? Or does everyone still have faith in Enterolab and their testing? Also, what test would you chose to get? There are many.
