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?

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
