How long did it take for you to get your blood results back?I had bloods done a week and a half ago and I'm getting very twitchy about the results xx

Hi there, would be really interested in finding out what your results are and which tests you were given. I've had one IGA test so far which was negative but my doc said that that is by no means accurate. He is ordering RAST next. I wish they would do them all in one go rather than keep having to give vials of blood!

I am in the uk. I had one test done as part of a routine blood panel (he added the one test for celiac because I have a brother with it and I asked for it). It only took a few days to come back but although it came back negative I am not totally convinced it was accurate due to the success I have had on a gluten free diet. Nearly 3 months and many of my health problems are reversing themselves. I think my body knows better...

Yes, I'm in the UK too. I also eliminated nightshades two days ago and am already starting to feel better from that! Would be interesting to see what the next raft of tests shows. The first one NHS does is often negative in celiacs apparently because of IgA deficiency. Let me know how you are both doing.

I would certainly agree with that. Are you going to get more tests?

No as usual my drs are not going to investigate further. I just get left with the anxiety, depression and IBS diagnosis, which is what they blamed the fatigue, dizziness/vertigo and stomach issues etc on. Other than routine blood tests I have never had any further tests for anything lol.

Oddly antidepressants and therapy have never helped. But changing my diet has...

It is so hard dealing with the UK NHS system when you don't have an openminded Doctor. I think they have a limit to the tests they can run on things that are not 'obvious'. My doctor asked if I really wanted the tests as it was pretty conclusive with my diet changes that I was on the mend. I said of course I did because I have two small children who might also be celiac/gluten intolerant! They just don't think that far down the line! If you have children then I would push heavily for conclusive testing... I am definitely going to. Luckily I think my doctor will try to help.
