Well, I will finally have health insurance for testing, starts October 1st!!! I have reintroduced gluten into my diet, daily at least 3 slices of wheat bread or equiv. starting august 30,the day I found out I would be receiving a scholarship through the local hospital that includes full medical. My question is when should I try to schedule an appt.???I am pretty sure that I am Celiac, all my symptoms started again, major gas and bloating, (I look pregnant again <_< ) rash, D, etc. Would it be safe to be tested in oct??? It would probably be towards the end of oct. due to the fact that I have to find a new DR. that is part of the hospital system then convince them I need to be tested.

Thanks!

give it 3 months before testing - yes, while eating gluten at that rate. I know it sucks, but that's the recommendation for reducing your risk of false negatives.

though you may be able to have the rash biopsied now to find out if it's DH. that could speed up the process.

I never thought about that, great suggestion!!!

I'll look into it asap-I'm tired of the intestinal problems--it DOES suck!! So anything to speed up testing is worth it.

Thanks, Tarnalberry!!
