Ok, so I apparently forgot to go to the lab to get my blood withdrawn last week right after I met with the doctor. It was funny. She comes in the room and says.."ok let's take a look at your results!" I'm thinking...."uhhhh..what results, you didn't take any blood from me yet."

After comparing each other's side of the story. I apologised that I must have had severe brain fog on that first visit and she did tell me to go downstairs to get it done. Instead, I walked to the parking lot and drove home. Whoa! Talk about lack of concentration.

So, I went downstairs and they drew blood and I did the urine sample.

Ok...so now I get this clear bag with a rather large white plastic pan to collect my crap at home. Mind you, there's a big festival going on across the street downtown and I have to walk outside past all these people waiting in line with this clear bag holding all these vials and the pan. I asked her, "Naturally you're trying to embarrass me with this clear bag, huh?" She laughed.

Here's my question, though. Should I eat something with Gluten in it before I drop a #2 and collect it?

Or should I just relax and not ingest anything with gluten. I'm thinking maybe they would want to see it reacting...but I'm getting tested for other things besides celiac disease. :unsure:

How long have you been attempting to be gluten free? If you were gluten free for even a small amount of time that can interfere with test results for celiac.
