Confused With My Diagnosis! Need Advice

Recommended Posts

From your test results, they did not test for any of the nutrient levels that people with gluten intolerance malabsorption are commonly deficient in, like Vitamins A, D, B12, folate, iron/ferritin, magnesium. Your potassium and calcium levels were tested and normal.

Yes, eating and being gluten free is a bit of a pain and does require quite a bit of extra effort. If you feel that the only way you can do that is to be absolutely sure in your OWN mind, then you would need to do a gluten challenge for at least a couple of months, eating a full gluten diet (equivalent of 3-4 slices of bread per day) before testing.
