Please share how you discovered you have gluten sensitivity…
- Genetic Testing
- Antibody Testing (Anti-gliadin, Anti-tissue transglutaminase, anti endomysial antibodies, etc)
- Elimination Diet
I went to see a new doctor to get my thyroid checked, but was having severe abdominal issues. The doctor ran antibody tests and put me on a gluten free diet. She is also gluten free. The antibody test came back normal, but due to my symptoms getting better and family history, I was diagnosed as gluten intolerant. Deficient in Vitamin D, also diagnosed as Hypothyroid. She said I could have a stool test if I want, but that meant getting back on gluten, so I declined.
