Blood test for gluten intolerance?
I was talking to my sons OT about his dairy intolerance and I mentioned that I was interested in trying a gluten free diet. She responded with "why don't you just get him the blood test?"
Blood test? There's a blood test?
She was of the opinion that *most* people who do not test postive for gluten intolerance on the blood test do not have a gluten intolerance, to the point where it's not even worth trying the diet if the blood test is negative. I've never heard this before, have you? What's your opinion?
Also, I'm scheduled for an allergy test myself. I have chronic allergies (stuffy nose, sinus pressure, etc.) and I have not been able to find a medication to treat this, nothing works. Will they give me a gluten intolerance test while I'm there? My doctor said they would test for "everything", but I'm not sure what "everything" is. I'm not even sure if an "intolerance" is the same thing as an "allergy".
