If you are going  to pay that much, why not just get it done at a reputable lab near you?  I think mine was about that much.

I just looked , briefly, at it and the main company.  If that had been around when I gene tested, I would have done that.  I didn't think my health insurance would pay for my DNA test.... but they actually did by going thru my doctor.

In case you did not know, genetic testing for celiac disease is usually used to help rule out a celiac disease diagnosis.  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could turn into celiac disease (only a very few actually develop it).    That is a lot of people!  

If you suspect celiac disease, consider a simple antibodies blood test from the University of Chicago’s celiac center:

    I'm a firm believer that celiac disease only aggravates mental conditions that are already there. The withdrawals can possibly cause mood issues like someone coming down off of drugs, alcohol or tobacco but it's not the gluten per se. Generally...
    Well, in reading the other posts it seems as though my reaction is different from most.  My point was that I was having withdrawal symptoms from no longer consuming gluten.  Gluten acts on the pleasure center of the brain, like opiates,  ...
