Test For Gluten Sensitivity?

Were you blood tested? If not, you will probably want to run the full panel of celiac bloodwork before going any further.

 

If that is all negative, then you have nothing to lose by trying the gluten free diet to see if you feel better. If your symptoms clear up on the gluten free diet, then that's your answer. Many here (including myself) don't have a firm diagnosis, but adhere to a strict gluten free diet because it works to keep us symptom free and healthy.

 

There are no scientifically validated medical tests for non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Thanks to both of you. I did try gluten free and was feeling much better but had to go off the diet for the endoscopy. I was feeling much better; now I feel lousy again but not as lousy as before. The GI doc suggested I go gluten-free again and see what happens.

 

Thanks again.

I was tested for Celiac Disease too, and all of my testing came back negative. For me, I believe that I have a Gluten Sensitivity because I feel better when I don't have gluten. The doctor told me to continue a gluten free diet, and it has made my life so much better.

Some doctors think the SGS IgA and AGA IGG (anti-gliadin antibodies) may in some cases test positive for non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) but that is not a widely accepted belief at all, and the test is notoriously unreliable (low sensitivity).

I found my info here:

or this one: http://drrodneyford.com/faq/bloods-tests/gluten-blood-tests.html

 

Most people will just need a long term, positive response to the gluten-free diet in order to diagnose NCGS
