Ah I know what you mean Pager. You have to eat a good bit of gluten-ntaining food for 3 months prior to the test otherwise you get a false negative. I remember the garlic naan bread I had the night before my endoscopy with huge pleasure
That's really interesting about a gene test! Wow. Where did you get that done? I haven't heard of it being available yet in Ireland. However, and this is interesting, coeliacs tend to have particularly short little fingers (pinky finger).....the pinky does not even reach the top joint of the ring finger if you know what I mean? All the coeliacs in my family have this short pinky.
Sadly, so does my litte son (18 months old) so I suspect he will be a coeliac too....have kept him gluten free since birth but I will have to get him tested sometime.
Sorry for wandering off topic slightly
