Specialty Laboratories (valencia, California)

Recommended Posts

My doctor's clinic uses Specialty Laboratories in Valencia, California for their celiac testing. What can anyone tell me about them -- good, bad, or otherwise?


Many hard-to-define health problems, some since childhood.

Diagnosed with spastic colon circa 1984.

My father also had many hard-to-define health problems, as did his brother.

His brother's daughter biopsy-diagnosed as celiac, June 2007.

My Prometheus Celiac Plus blood panel results (late November 2007) were **very** negative

---- except for one DQ8 gene.

Awaiting results of EnteroLab stool tests.

Meanwhile, have been gluten-free since 4 December 2007, and starting to feel better!

I guess I should have asked -- Has anyone had their celiac blood tests run at Specialty Labs?

Or know anyone who has?

Or heard them recommended (for OR against)?

Thanks!

Yes, according to their web site, they can do all of the usual celiac tests. And it looks like they run specimens from all over the country, since my doctor here in Indiana uses them. I would just like to know whether their results can be trusted
