Looks negative? What did the doctor say?

Yep, negative, but you just had the screening test which is good, but does not catch all celiacs (like me ?).  Curious as to what your doctor will tell you.  You can request the rest of the celiac panel to be sure.

I tested negative as well, but several months later broke out in what has been diagnosed (pending skin biopsy),  as dermatitis herpetiformis,  which is a manifestation of celiac. The bloodwork is helpful in a diagnosis but a negative result is not definitive.

Thank you all for replying. I have not heard from my doctor yet. They are very slow at responding to things. I took a pregnancy test and it took them 2 weeks to tell me the results... But I'm not sure if I can get other tests done because I am on Medicaid managed care with MVP Option. There are other tests they can do??

Thank you for the information. But I don't have DH. I have another skin issue that I'm not even sure what it's from. I've had it on and off all my life. I'll post a pic.

Here's a pic of the skin condition. I have it on my inner elbows, and on the sides between my rolls, lol. I have noticed that it would go away in the winter and come back whenever it gets hot and especially humid.
