    Hello, This is my first time posting. I was recently tested for Celiac and the results were positive for the genes but negative for the antibodies. My doctor said I need to be off gluten for 6 months before the titers of antibodies fall. I discovered I might be gluten intolerant after going on an elimination diet. So, when I was tested I had been gluten free for about 6 weeks. I have been incredibly strict - cook only from scratch - veggies, rice etc. Is it possible my titers have fallen and the result came out negative - but I may still have celiac? I am planning to stay gluten free because I feel so much better - but I want to know if I am actually celiac or not. Thanks PS I have never posted on line before and couldn't post without starting a blog. Is that how this works?!?!
