Hi,
My husband has been gluten free for 2-3 years. When he does get any kind of wheat, oats, yeast and etc. he gets really sick, tired and headaches. His teeth lost the enamual and had to be capped. I am sure he is a celiac person. He will go to the doc in a month to have a tube put down his throat. The doc said to eat 2 slices of bread a day for two weeks. He has a very important job and can't afford to be sick. Should he bread it or not?

Thanks for your time - Nancy

Actually he needs to eat the equivilent of two-three servings of bread for about 3-6 months!!! 2 Weeks isn't going to cause enough damage to be seen on the scope he is having. <_< So basically the scope will be a waste of time and his diagnosis (if only based on the scope) will come back negative.

I really wish doctors would do some more research.

He needs to be on for gluten for a good 3 months. 2 weeks will not be enough. The results will come back negative.

In my opinion if you know he does horrible on gluten then why put him on it? Do you need the biopsy done for a specific reason? Did he have a diagnosis before or why did he get off of all gluten? Has he got better off of it?
