I agree. Why go through six more wks of gluten if you have the answer. An endoscopy does not show intolerance, as I have. My doctor never thought of it, but when I told her, she was way cool with it.
We have gotten sold the lie that we are not smart, and only a professional can diagnose a problem with our bodies, even though we live in them. :)
As an example, my migraines are mostly caused by gluten, MSG and barometric changes, especially the drops. I am rigorous about the first two. My DR. told me I needed to control any other triggers. She didn't believe me at first when I told her how I had charted the problem. The next time I saw her, she told me I was the 3rd person in one week with the barometer problem. BTW: my youngest son has the same weather problem.
So, many of us don't have celiac, which makes troubleshooting harder. If you have the answer, don't go through another expensive and painful test to prove or disprove something unless you need the proof for something.
Okay, off the soapbox!
