  1. Has anyone using EnteroLab's testing service actually been diagnosed as NOT having a gluten sensitivity? My wife is considering the test, but thus far, everything we read, seems to indicate that people are reporting positive or borderline results. I'd like to hear from someone having abdominal pains or celiac-like symptoms who has results falling in the normal (non-positive) ranges -- has anyone come across such results from EnteroLab? $349 is a lot to spend on a test if we have a sure chance of it coming back positive/borderline. :-(
  2. I've been a lurker for the past couple weeks, but now that we have test results, here's the question: Does anyone know what it could mean if the anti-tissue transglutaminase autobody test (tTG) is below normal? (Reference range is 4 to 6, her result is 2.0). My 26Y wife has been having severe abdominal pain for over a year, but it has been increasing with severe intensity. A biopsy has confirmed inflammation -- but the villi (where the biopsy was taken, at least) are intact. A barium swallow has indicated nothing out of the ordinary. I'm guessing that if the autoantibody test is below normal, perhaps she doesn't produce IgA, and therefore it shows a below-normal range? Does this sound right? She doesn't see the doctor until January. Would a gluten-free diet be suggested? Any ideas or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
