Go Gluten free or not??
by Gina C.

I had a stool test performed by Enterolabs and it came back positive for a gluten sensitivity and I have a DNA marker for celiac sprue and gluten intolerance. I do not have all the "classic" symptoms but I have had chronic constipation my whole life and I have trouble maintaining my weight. I was wondering if anyone has any opinions or experience with the Enterolab stool testing?
I don't know if I should remain gluten-free or not. I do feel better when I go gluten free, mainly because I cut out a lot of carbs. But as you all know it is difficult to follow and I need some confirmation.
My MD doesn't believe much in the test and it is making me second guess myself. As well, my family doesn't put much stock in it either.
I would feel better hearing from other people who are dealing with these issues.
I appreciate all your feedback!
