Newbie Here- Advice Needed

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with IBS back in April, after suffering for 2 years from terrible bloat, constipation, stomach pain, etc...

I finally went to a gastroenterologist a few weeks ago who tested me for celiac based on my symptoms.

Being that I'm completely gluten free due to my IBS diagnosis (or misdiagnosis lol), my blood results were negative, as expected by the dr. I go back in a week to confirm.

Could it be celiac anyways?

Sure. It could be Celiac. However, you have to eat gluten to make the antibodies that they test for. A negative test, when gluten free, only proves you are eating gluten free. You would need to go back on gluten for testing.
