    There is a blood test now, I know that. I had to have the scope down my throat, but I was super-sick anyway at the time. Just ask your Dr for the blood test.

    I don't have any stomach or intestinal problems that are obvious to me when I eat gluten, but it makes me very weak. I have read that the tests are not infallible and it is far better to just give it up for a few weeks and see if you see an improvement. Same goes for dairy. You can get gluten free breads, crackers, cookies and pastas if you still crave these foods.

    best wishes,

    The gluten test isn't always reliable. I had IBS for almost
    30 yrs. I went on the no gluten diet a yr. ago. Since then I have had NO IBS. You don't have to have a gluten intolerance, to have a gluten sensitivity. The test only shows gluten allery.
