Initially, blood tests for antibodies against gliadin or tissue transglutaminase are used to diagnose gluten sensitivity/celiac disease; but a person can have gluten sensitivity even when these blood tests are negative. EnteroLab and Dr. Kenneth Fine have developed a new method of screening for gluten sensitivity/celiac disease. The immunologic reaction to gluten occurs first inside the intestinal tract; the EntroLab test is noninvasive (unlike standard biopsy) and is more accurate than blood tests alone.
Many people who have been told they are NOT gluten sensitive when they actually are. Maybe even some people here at ThisIsMS. I encourage you to read the information here at EntroLab.com
Please note that "any autoimmune syndrome" and "peripheral neuropathy" are in the list of people with certain diseases that are at greater risk of developing gluten sensitivity and who should be tested:
