  1. I received a false negative on my blood test for Celiac Disease when I was a teenager. My mom has the disease and was unwilling to accept the blood test result as I seemed to mimic her symptoms before she was diagnosed. She pushed and pressured our family doctor for a Biopsy. After my biopsy the surgeon informed us that I do infact have Celiac Disease. I caution starting a gluten-free diet without having a biopsy if you want to know 100% that you have Celiac Disease. The problem with going gluten-free before a biopsy is that your Villi heal from not eating wheat/gluten. So in the end it will look as though you do not have celiac disease. Good luck.....hope you are feeling better
