What Mzzchief said about getting the test after you been off of it for a while and then getting a false neg is true and that is what happened to me. If I eat stuff that has gluten in then I am in a whole lot of pain but if I stay away from it then no problems.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Welcome! Your doctor should know the name of the test. I'm never clear b/c I've been gf for so long. The tests will still work if you have been off gluten for a short while. It always changes with the latest research. Best to check the medical hospital sites or national organizations for the best information.

If you've already given up gluten containing foods, and are feeling much better, then chances are high that your body has cleared the antibodies that labwork looks for and you'll come back with a false negative to gluten allergy. This is one of the problems with testing after someone has avoided gluten for a while.

IMO save yourself the time and money... let common sense be your guide.
You don't need to draw and test blood, to know you're feeling so much better by avoiding gluten... not eating it and feeling good, eating it and feeling horrible, is the ultimate test!

Additionally there's a percentage of the population that has wheat allergy with no markers for gluten intolerance/celiac.

Glad you're feeling better.

Hi I'm Ginny!!
New to the whole gluten/celiac scene. I'm wondering if there is a name for the test (if there is one) that detects having Celiac.
All I know is my digestive system is ever so better!!
Happy to join you and thanks for the goodie emoticon
