Well I was gluten-free for 3 months but im back on gulten foods for the blood test and ive been pretty miserable. My doctor told me to have one serving of gulten a day for a month.From what you know will one serving a month be enought time to show celaic and is one serving enough .I usually have it at night time but everytime im eat gluten-free foods I think that it will some how screw the test up .Have any advice or ideas it would be greatly appreciated I cant screw this up I know its celiac.

thanks

You won't like this answer, but I know that Dr. Fasano says two servings per day for three months.

I agree with Richard that it would require more than 1 serving for a month....every doctor has his or her own opinion, but I think most would agree that one serving a day for a month is too little. Other than that, I don't have too much to add....except that I feel REALLY, REALLY sorry for you.

I've been gluten-free since February and my symptoms seem to be just beginning to abate (knock on wood :) ). Anyway, I can't imagine being on the diet for months, starting to see a little hope with symptoms, and then having to ruin it all...on purpose....all I can say is that I hope you get better soon after going gluten-free for the second time, hope that the doc. realizes that you DO have celiac disease after all this (even though you already know), and good luck in dealing with the symptoms. :(

thanks.Its good to hear your feeling better. I incresed my amount of gluten to 2 servings a day and its hard , hard with one let alone two servings .All my symptoms are comming back and it hurts and feels like my stomach is like falling apart .Its ruining my life .I have a new symptom i think ... ever sence last friday when I started gulten back ive been getting really bad pains all threw my arms and legs its werid the doc just said oh its probly growing pains but it should last this long.Im gonna talk to the speciliest when I go up there before I get any test done because I want to make sure that he knows I was only on it for a month because if I have to do this I have to do it right.How long were you guys on gulten before you got the test?

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
