Re: IBS/Gluten Intolerance/Celiac Disease

You must be eating gluten in order for a blood test to give a positive result. If the result is positive while eating gluten then you will likely need a endoscopy to take a biospy of the small intestine to confirm celiac disease.

Gluten is found in more foods than just wheat. It is in barley, rye, spelt and possibily oats.

If you think you may have Celiac Disease it is important to get a correct diagnosis. Untreated this disease can cause intestinal damage. It is probably wise to get retested. This disease can have serious consequences if gone untreated.

If you don't have celiac disease then it is possible that you have problems with fructans in wheat. This is a known problem for many individuals with GI disorders. You can read about it in the links in my signature.
