I have contacted a few private hospital about testing for coeliac disease . but the all say the same thing . you need to be referred to them by your gp
my problem is that in in January 2013 I was told I did not have coeliac disease after nhs blood tests came back normal.
however I noticed my symptoms improve when I go on a gluten free diet . so I requested my medical records . and was shocked to read this in capital records. from the 2013 allergy testing
ANTI -TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINSE LEVEL
PLEASE NOTE NEW METHODS FOR TTG ANTIBODIES FROM 16.7.12 COELIAC DISEASE CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED IF PATIENTS ON A GLUTEN FREE DIET.
gp wrote normal result do not contact patient.
but the gp never asked if I was on a gluten free diet. I was gluten free when I took the blood test .
I am not getting anywhere on the nhs. gp will not refer me and is being awkward about retesting . so I am thinking off going private.
can anybody recommend a private hospital to get tested where you don't need a gp referral ?
has anybody used blue horizon to have blood test?
