Well - I finally had my specialist consult today. My GI doc is very knowledgable and for that I am grateful. He wants me to do a gluten challenge for 3 weeks prior to my endoscopy. Having been gluten-free for over a month now I am a bit scared to go back to eating gluten again. But I will do what I need to do to get a proper diagnosis and to see what damage has been done. He also ordered the genetic test for me.
Any tips on how and when to time the eating of the 2 slices of bread that he wants me to eat daily? I still have a job to do and my symptoms are mostly diarrhea, cramps and bloating. I wonder if eating at evening versus morning will be better.... I guess that is trial and error at this point..
