My response to the email about EnteroLab's business ban in Maryland and NewYork.
I too have been watching this interestingly.
My suspicions are that this political maneuver has something to do with the preminent CD doctors in Maryland and NewYork who, from my listening to all of their comments about EnteroLab, disparage the results of EnteroLab because in spite of doing testing for 10 years, Entero has not bothered to follow the prescribed medical protocol to become reputable in "medical" terms.
This reputable protocol may require something like double blind testing--that is virtually impossible to do in the social environment of American medicine because of how we are diagnosed. I imagine that it involves testing the same number of individuals who do not suspect that they suffer from celiac disease as those who have the disease and how would Entero do that? So the accreditation suffers.
It's so complicated and confusing and there is a lot going on behind the scenes that is deeper than we in the celiac community understand. We just need better testing -- as so many of us are sero-negative. Unfortunately, the frustration mounts for us as our desperation increases. People are dying (Cousin Connie of esophageal cancer) while we wait.
Best wishes with your response. If you want diagnosed, use another address in another state. That is my recommendation.
