Blood test - gluten sensitivity

Postby ViewsAskew » Sat Apr 26, 2014 2:49 am

I do not know anything about this - just saw it today in a newsletter about celiac:
https://www.alcat.com/landing/gluten-se ... y-test.php

Supposedly, this tests for gluten sensitivity, not celiac. So, if you're someone who's had celiac-type reactions but test negative to celiac, this might be a good test to take. No idea how expensive it is.

I think the medical community doesn't recognize any of the tests for sensitivity - none have been validated. No known biomarkers, so diagnosis is a process of elimination based on patient history.eg. http://www.celiaccentral.org/non-celiac ... diagnosis/

That is true - the community tends to be extremely evidence-based (and with good reason).
