Intrepid1 replied to Mcfmommy's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHi, I was just hoping whomever answers Mcfmommy's question could expand a little, because I'm in a slightly but not substantially different boat, but thought I'd keep my question contained in the same post. I've been trying gluten free for a while because I thought I might be intolerant, but after several months where certain health symptoms cleared up that I never thought would be a problem and after several accidental glutenings, I'm thinking I should get tested for celiac. Just to know for sure. How much gluten is needed in your system to generate antibodies? Especially if I've have been mostly off of it except for accidental glutening (or possibly 3 within the last 3 weeks)? Is it something where you can eat your last krispy kreme for the rest of your life the night before the blood test or do you have to be on pasta for a week? I really hate how my body reacts with accidental glutenings, so the idea of going back on gluten for a length of time really doesn't sound appealing. (Although, if its for medical purposes, I suppose I could manage one last krispy kreme.) Thanks in advance.
