A Question About A Dr. Ford Comment About Blood Testing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

What are your thoughts on this post by Dr. Ford regarding the time off gluten and accurate blood testing? Daughter off gluten for 1 month with 2-3 "mistakes". Could the results sitll be accurate....as far as blood accuracy goes?


Antibody tests: tTG, EMA, DGP, IgG-gliadin, IgA-gliadin.

All of these blood tests measure antibody levels

Well, that is a pretty bald, bold statement that Dr. Ford makes, with nothing but his opinion apparently to back it up. If that were the case, why do doctors sometimes do a six-month and twelve-month follow-up blood test to check for dietary compliance, if you are still making the antibodies? I have never heard anybody else state this and think that the statement requires some scientific authority other than Dr. Ford to support it :P
