My wife had one done recently . it took 2 weeks . Skeeter


She was told it could be as long as 3 weeks . Hope that helps .. Skeeter


Thanks skeeter was that the celiac or ifab


It was intrinsic factor , Consultant said ring for result in 2/3 weeks . Was back when she called just over 2 weeks .

Cheers Skeeter


they should be done in 3 to 4 weeks

a delay is usually with an endos secretary bothering to type a letter


Thanks really fed up is that for both tests I called endo secretary

And she said they still said outstanding


I think that either they get sent off to a specialist centre or they batch them together either way theres delays ...........I know when my granddaughters coeliac test was done it was back in 3 weeks


Blood tests at my local blood testing unit at hospital take 2 days to be shown on computer at Dr's which is how long my same as ur tests took. However, haematology results took forever- I found out you have to get Dr's surgery to request access to them as they were on system but didn't know until I chased after 3 weeks.
