    I would bring up your suspicion. You know your body and your family history. It might take a couple appointments before she orders the blood test but I will continue to eat my normal diet as you need to be eating gluten to get proper test results. I do know that. You know your body and you know that something is wrong. I felt like a hypochondriac for a long time trying to pinpoint what was actually wrong with me. No worries… Best of luck to you.
  2. Ok so here they are... So this was for the blood work for the serology and the genetic. Mind you they had me off of gluten for almost a month before doing my blood work. The did a endoscopy and diagnosed me and did blood work and now saw that I do not have it. So I was praying you guys could help me.

  3. Hi, Ok. So one month ago I was diagnosed Celiac after having severe pain in my abdomen for the last month and many other symptoms. They did an endoscopy and a biopsy and the biopsy came back positive for Celiac. So I was told to go Gluten Free and the last month I have slowly felt better. I assumed I was properly diagnosed and started my life changing diet. 2 weeks ago they had me go in for blood work and both my serology test and genetic test came back negative for Celiac. The nurse who called me about me results said I don't have any aversion to gluten. She was not a kind lady and was very angry at me for asking her so many questions she could not answer. She had to talk to the Dr. 3 different times and call me back. I knew the serology test was done incorrectly and told her so. I feel like my Dr. just gave me a giant run around and don't even want to go back and see him... So how do I have a positive biopsy and negative genetic test? I know the serology was done incorrectly, as I had been gluten-free for over 3 weeks prior to the blood work... but if the genetic test came back negaitve... is it not possible that I could be Celiac? Do either of those tests actual test for gluten sensitivity? Or just for Celiac? Please any advise or any experiences you have could really help me at this point... Thank you so much!!!
