If you think you will want the clinical tests, go to the doctor first. The blood tests are invalid if you've been on the gluten free diet for very long. That said, you can indeed try the diet without doctor's intervention if you choose to go that route, just make sure that you are 100% gluten free for a good length of time - at least a month - before coming to any conclusions.
