Enterolab Or Alternative Lab?

First off, thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and reply.  :P

 

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.  :rolleyes:  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. 

 

Thanks!

Currently, there are no medically accepted tests for Celiac that can be done without eating gluten.  Nor are there any tests for NCGS.

You could just tell people you have a diagnosis?  Its not really any of their business how yo are diagnosed.
