Please share how you discovered you have gluten sensitivity…

  • Genetic Testing
  • Antibody Testing (Anti-gliadin, Anti-tissue transglutaminase, anti endomysial antibodies, etc)
  • Biopsy
  • Elimination Diet
  • Other?


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.
