Been having celiac symptoms since February and they have worsted and I have over ten symptoms I went gluten free for three days and felt a lot better I then immediately went back to gluten to take a blood test to check for it. If I was eating gluten up until a few days ago and only at gluten free for three days and then went back will the antibodies still be present? I didn't get to tell the doctor that I only went gluten free for three days and they said to eat gluten for 2 weeks. Im losing 3 to 5 lbs a week so I want to get this test done ASAP bc I'm almost down 25 Ibs since march and only weigh 126 rt now. Should the test be okay to take within a week?

Three days gluten-free really isn't much at all. As long as you are back on gluten now, you will probably be okay to test this week.


Good luck and welcome to the board.
