Testing W/out Gluten Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Is there any testing available that you *don't* have to be on gluten for??

Doc finally offered to do the celiac panel for my 4 year old, but he's doing great gluten-free, and if he feels even remotely like I did, I don't want to put him through that.

And also for myself (who's doc refused to do the celiac panel, and is happy enough that I'm gluten-free and feeling better).

Is it just the genetic testing? Perhaps if I can save up some money, I'd be able to do this...

I'm thinking I'd like to have a definite Celiac diagnosis at some point... just for peace of mind.

If you have been gluten free for less than a year Enterolab may still be able to find antibodies. They also do gene testing. I think you are a wise Mom not to make you little one do a gluten challenge if he is thriving and was ill before the diet.
