    • yea she was very aware! thats why i was surprised. i brought up multiple times i have been gluten free, she even explained the blood test to me that id have to eat just a little bit of gluten every day for a few weeks to test for the antibodies. we talked multiple times directly and specifically about me not having eaten ver much gluten since march i have also considered non-gluten sensitivity, my symptoms just feel so systemic. im probably going to try to get the genetic testing done, since i'm only missing one piece of the puzzle with the HLA-DQ7... thank you for your reply! i sincerely appreciate you taking the time
    • You’re correct that the endoscopy could not accurately rule out celiac disease if you had been gluten-free in the months before it was done, and your gastro should have known this...did you tell them you were gluten-free beforehand? Did they even ask?  From you description you could have gluten sensitivity, but the proper way to rule out celiac disease would be to eat gluten daily for 4-6 weeks and get a celiac disease blood panel done: If you don’t wish to go this route and being on the diet improves your symptoms, then you could get a full genetic test, but it would not rule out gluten sensitivity or CD 100% (it would be very unlikely to have CD without the genetic markers).
    • Dining out is a common source of gluten contamination, and this article may be helpful:
