A Negative Celiac Test Means Nothing...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Joe,

You will ALWAYS get a negative celiac disease test if you are gluten free. If you absolutely feel the need to, then you can eat gluten for two weeks for the POSSIBILITY of getting a diagnosis. But there is no guarantee that you WILL get a diagnosis simply because you can't tolerate gluten.


You can also have Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and you'll never get diagnosed!


So, there are LOADS of people out there with Lactose Intolerance and no tests for it- and they get along just fine without having an official diagnosis, and you've gotten along without a diagnosis for this long too.

But if it's REALLY important to you, remember that in order to get ANTIBODIES to gluten to get a positive diagnosis, those antibodies have to be ATTACKING something- and that something is your INTESTINAL LINING where the gluten is attached to it!! You must, by definition, be causing intentional damage to your intestines in order to get enough damage to your intestines to get a diagnosis- because the intestinal biopsy looks for a damaged intestinal lining, and without damage to the intestinal lining, you cannot ever get a diagnosis. That's just how it works...

Thanks Kerri!

That's what I suspected. Yes, I still get a little perturbed by friends, family members, and co-workers who don't believe me when I turn down pizza, or cake and ice cream. But I will stick to my guns knowing how much better I feel and look when I'm gluten free.


You can tell them...

That's OK Joe, they will be singing your praises as a miracle worker when your friends come down with an 'incurable' chronic health problem (like Crohn's Disease) and they get better when you suggest that they go gluten free.

It will come back to you.

You can use the lactose intolerance analogy too. Nobody thinks twice about people with lactose intolerance, but somehow 'gluten intolerance' is not real! I don't get it.
