I had tests for coeliacs 12 years ago, diagnosis was negative, but was told by consultant I was wheat intolerant. Consequently I cut wheat out of my diet. I had a slight improvement but over last 3 years have also been intolerant to dairy products my doctor told me to cut that out too. During the last 3 months I have a new GP, who sent me for blood tests as i was getting tingling sensations down my arms and although eating a low fat healthy diet i was overrweight. The blood tests revealed my ALT levels in my liver are high, he now thinks it could be coeliacs. However, to have a test for this I have to go back to eating a gluten diet which I cannot bare the thought of as I don't want to spend six weeks living in my bathroom. Should I just continue to cut gluten out or is there any other way to be diagnosed?
