Enterolab Positive, Blood Work Neg?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

I received my Enterolab test results today. I will post them below. Both my soy and gluten are sensitive. I spoke to the doc today but he said I should consider speaking with a psychiatrist about hypochondria as well. That's exactly what I was afraid of and that's why I brought in my enterolab results to avoid that. If the blood tests come back negative I believe that's the end of the road for me, but I will still go gluten free until my job requires otherwise.

I would like to know how likely a false positive on enterolab is? Has anyone out there experienced this? Who was positive with both? Who was negative with a blood test but positive with an endo?

Thanks guys I know it's not a very constructive post but I couldn't help myself.

A medical doctor isn't likely to use the Stool testing results as they have not been proven to be accurate. You can always try a gluten-free diet and see if it helps. You could have non- celiac gluten intolerance.

"Is there a stool test to determine whether or not I have celiac disease?

Stool tests have not been proven to be effective in screening for celiac disease in patients. Blood tests remain the most effective and reliable way of screening for celiac disease."
