  1. So, below are my results and I can happily say that I finally have an answer... Well, sort of. From the interpretation, it appears that I am producing anti-bodies so I should go on a strict gluten free diet. Also, my body has not received any damage from gluten and is still absorbing nutrients. Am I correct? Now I am curious if I should even bother going to my MD with these results and ask for additional tests for Celiac Disease. Should I even bother? Additional notes: I have a suspected autoimmune condition called Vitiligo and I suffer from chronic constipation. I'm wondering if maybe I have a Fungal overgrowth and/or bacterial overgrowth of some type that may be causing an anti-body reaction (Candida, H.Pylori, etc...). Any type of digestive stress and/or dysfunction would logically cause me to have problems digesting a protein such as gluten. Anyone that would like to comment should because I would appreciate many perspectives . Thanks! Kenneth D.
