Hello :)

I have been gluten, wheat, and dairy free now since the first part of January 2004. I feel great, have lost weight with excersise, ect, but am wondering something:

I have not had the blood test...and since I have a heck of a cold now, I might be going to the doctor to see if it's upper resperatory. While there, I like to address as many concerns as I can and my doc is always willing to listen.

Should I ask about the celiac test? I have also thought about calling my allergist and talking to him about the test for celiac. I did not test allergic to wheat, but he said that based on my symptoms (I would have diahreea after the first meal of the day, lots of gas, and diahreea was a common event in my life), I should try it. Well, I've tried it and I feel better and so this has prompted me to think about the blood test.

I had an endoscopy, and that biopsy was normal and so was my colonoscopy. So, would it hurt to get the blood test?

Since you have not been ingesting gluten, your body won't be producing antibodies for the gluten. Therefore your blood tests will come back negative. In order to get the testing, you need to be eating gluten products. Best of luck!!

I found a link to a website I found online for a place called Entrolab that does celiac disease testing amongst other tests that you can do in the privacy of your own home and send off as a stool sample. They poop it properly so it isnt altered or contaminated or spoil so to speak. The test sounds like a promise because you do not have to ingest gluten to get accurate results.

I dont know about you but I donthave the guts or the time to sit in a bathroom all day in pain practically dying just to get a positive result. Ive heard youd have to eat gluten (about 4 slices of bread a day) in order to get the right amount to damage the villi enough for accurate results... I think thats bull. I have a daughter that I have to raise.. I cant sit in a bathroom all dang day!

Here is the link. Im giong to do it as soon as i get the money. Ill let you alll know how it goes.

    Thank you very much for that info, yes I am awaiting a test but was just looking for some reassurance in the meantime really and to you know if anybody else has similar symptoms. Thank you x
    Welcome! There are over 200 symptoms attributed to celiac disease. Migraines are one of them as celiac disease is systemic (not just gut issues).   The only way to find out is to get tested.  Ask your PCP for a simple blood test: ...
    Yogurt can vary from 4-17 grams of lactose, Milk has 9-14, so it may be slightly less than milk but not by much. I know that shortly after I was DX'd with Celiac I was lactose intolerant for about the first 5-6 months of gluten-free diet....
