Just got my blood work back. the doctor only tested c-reactive protein, sed rate and endomysial ab. All came back negative. Should I just start the diet and see if my symptoms get better? I don't know what to do?

This is the panel of blood test that he should rule to test for Celiac:

Anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) both IgA and IgG

Anti-endomysial antibodies (EMA) - IgA

Anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTG) - IgA

Total IgA level.

What was your doctors testing for (that came back negative?) I would also like to get a full metabolic blood work that would show any deficiencies which may indicate a problem somewhere.
