My Girlfriend Got Tested

12 August 2010 - 05:29 AM

Hi, i met my girlfriend about 4 years ago. She was told back in her country when she was a child that she had malabsorption and flattened villi, but she was never told to follow a gluten free diet, which made her confused. After 3 years of strict gluten-free diet, she decided to go get tested for celiac, doctor told she doesn't have the disease. Off course her blood tests will be negative if she has been gluten-free for 3 years, yet she wants to be certain. I explained to her the only way of getting a positive diagnosis is by eat lots of gluten for many months, I know it will make her very sick. She also has Chrons disease and she hasn't been putting on wieght. Her doctor told her that even though she has been gluten free for 3 years, he can still detect the disease for blood work. Is this true from the doctor, she said he wasn't a good doctor. :(
