When she says "2 negative results for celiac" I do not understand the problem ... because there are at least 5 different tests for celiac/gluten/wheat problems. And, none can completely rule out a gluten problem: the only way to see if gluten is truly affecting you is to go on a gluten-free diet for a year and see if you get better. But get your blood tests first.
- Gluten blood tests: IgG-gliadin
- Tissue damage blood tests: tTG, EMA, DGP
- Gene test: HLA DQ2/DQ8
- Endoscopy: a small bowel biopsy whilst still eating gluten
- Skin tests, EAST/RAST: specific IgE tests for wheat allergy.
