Hi All: I had the celiac blood test based on my own research. I've been having GI probs, and checked to see if I was lactose intolerant, and decided to have the test for gluten. I asked my Endo to order it, since he hadn't mentioned it, and after I did, he said he was glad I thought about it since he forgot to test me for it. My osteo Dr didn't think of it either so, I did it solely on my own, so to speak. I have to say that I think my mother had a gluten intolerance, but I'm not positive. My mother complained of being allergic to wheat etc, but I didn't pay much attention to it. She passed away 10 years ago, so there wasn't an apportunity to talk to her about it.
My test came back negative, so I can at least rule out some secondary causes of osteo. If it had come back positive, it would have given me the opportunity to treat that and possibly increase my bmd, plus hopefully reduce the GI probs. I'm glad I don't have it, because the diet seems very restrictive, but at least I don't have to think about that possibility anymore.
It's a simple test to start with, and I would recommend it if you haven't been tested, if only to ease your mind, plus there seems to be a lot of non symptomatic people out there, with it.
