How Long For Test Results?

Recommended Posts

I've recently (4 days ago) taken the blood test for celiac disease (I think IgA and the tissue one were ordered), in addition to thyroid testing which often goes along with celiac disease). Like many of you it seems, I'm stuck between a diagnosis of celiac or IBS. I'm not willing to accept IBS at this point because it is a diagnosis of exclusion, and basically means that they have no idea what is wrong with you. I may very well start the gluten-free diet regardless of what my test results say and just see what happens, although I will discuss with GI. My question to anyone is how long before test results are back? Is this a 4 week test? Or will I get it in a week or so? I requested that the laboratory mail me a copy of the results once they fax them to my doctor, so I will know prior to seeing GI doc--not sure if this strategy will work.

Any experience?

Thanks!
