Who Needs a Gluten Test? Video by “Gluten Syndrome” Expert Dr. Rodney Ford Explains

Dr. Rodney Ford, pediatrician and author of The Gluten Syndrome, provides us with an excellent and easy-to-follow video that tells us how to know if we need a gluten test.

This short presentation explains which symptoms to look for and tells you the tests you need to to request to find out if gluten is making you sick.

Dr. Ford estimates up to one third of people with chronic diseases are being affected by gluten and sums up why people do not ask to be tested. “We are so used to being sick that we don’t know we’re sick.” People think they have always been this way, so they do not know to ask.

He then establishes a great litmus test to determine who should be tested – “People who are sick, tired or grumpy should be tested.”

Q and A: Lived GF After Only Bloodwork Diagnosis? Do You Fully Trust the Bloodwork?

Question: Has anyone just lived GF after only a bloodwork diagnosis? Do you fully trust just the bloodwork?

Quick Answer: Many people live GF after only a bloodwork diagnosis. It is best to get both the bloodwork and endoscopy with biopsy before you go gluten-free. None of the current tests for celiac disease are 100% accurate. If you are not eating gluten, your tests will be negative.  

Long Answer: It is best to get tested before going gluten free. This way, your doctor will take your diagnosis seriously. Also, you will be tested for various deficiencies as a baseline to determine future healing.

The blood tests are not pass/fail, but rather provide a level of antibodies that your immune system is producing. If the level is at a high enough point where a doctor would probably find intestinal damage on endoscopy with biopsy, then you are given a positive result. If the level is not high enough, then your result would be negative. Just because you are negative today, doesn’t mean you will not be positive in the future. This is exactly what happened to a physician assistant I met at a gastroenterology conference. She tested negative. Three months later her results were sky high.

I told him it was called cheilosis, mainly caused by Riboflavin (vitamin B2) deficiency and gave him half a dozen B50 complex vitamins.
