I would advise you not to go gluten free until the
Endoscopy is done. If you start to eat gluten
free now it will affect your biopsy and blood
test. Have you had the blood test yet? My
GI doc did a celiac panel, I tested Neg for
the gene but positive for the IgA (75). I was
retested in 6 mos, my level is still somewhat
elevated. My doc said to try foods again one
by one to see how I react, I did this but
found I still cannot tolerate wheat or dairy.
My advice to you is to keep a journal of
what you consume as you will probably have
some "gluten accidents" from time to time.
Try to learn as much as you can about
this disease because my doc told me to
avoid wheat, rye, oats, and distilled vinegar!(DUH)
Get in the habit of readin all the labels, at first
it seems overwhelming. Try to come to this website
every day. There are plenty of people ready
to help you. Hope this helps.
gluten-free since 11/03, neg biopsy, IGA elevated
