If a blood test shows I don’t have celiac disease, then do I 100% for sure not have it?
Question by Jake G: If a blood test shows I don’t have celiac disease, then do I 100% for sure not have it?
If I get tested for celiac disease and the results show I don’t have it, I heard I could still be allergic to gluten.
Is this true?
Sounds dumb… I mean if I don’t have it, then I don’t have it.

SOME people can have false negatives on the blood test. If you have significant gastro symptoms, your doctor can insert a camera into your belly to see if the disease is present or not, or to try and find out some other cause for your symptoms. Talk to your doctor about if this is appropriate.
