Has anyone ??

Ever been diagnosed with celiac after an initial negative blood test as iv read its possible what's the likely chances. I was tested about ten years ago could it now come back positive or further testing be needed as id like this ruled out esp with all my health complaints main ones being numbness tingling pins and needle, walking into doorways , falling down in the dark. Digestive issues..feeling weak and tired all the time..cracking bones ....im sure theres more ...oh the mental confusing is a killer to.

  • I was tested for celiac and the blood test was negative. Due to weight loss I then had an endoscopy and colonoscopy and a diagnosis of celiac was given.

  • hi there, yes you can test negative if you have celiac (I did for years - have now been finally being diagnosed positive by endoscopy). The main thing to check is that they have made sure you are not IGA-deficient. If you are IGA-deficient, then the usual celiac test will show negative regardless. A better explanation here :)
