And the title says it all - my 3 year old and I went back on gluten after being off it for 2 months - I am having horrible side effects from being back on it - can we go off it now? We have to be a gluten-free household as my 6 year old had celiacs, so we were eating it outside of the home...I cannot wait to be gluten-free again, I felt so different off it...
Thank you !

Often following the blood test you are referred to a GI for an endoscopy with biopsy. For this procedure you still need to be consuming gluten. Wait for your results and see if your doc wants the pictures or, if you are not interested for yourself, keep your three-year-old on it so she can still get a confirmed diagnosis for her schooling years. You, of course can go gluten free whenever you want if you know you will do it regardless, but sometimes the endo is good to have for a comparative picture for healing purposes.
