In Topic: Test Results And Gluten Challenge (Failure) More Confused

Yesterday, 12:49 PM

Yes it is common. It can take time for the antibodies to build up and cause a reaction. 3 days is what it takes for me to get a gut reaction although my neuro symptoms hit within a day. Not everyone gets hit within hours of consuming gluten or another food they may be intolerant to.  If you do want a doctors diagnosis you will have to do a gluten challenge though.

Do keep in mind also that your medical records are your private information.  Don't cancel your appointment it will do no harm to go and after the testing is done go back to being gluten free. You know it is not all in your head and the turn around in your health and well being should be enough to convince your family.  You can always tell them that the doctor told you to go back to the diet which if he listens to you and your symptoms on the challenge is what he will likely do no matter what the test results are. .

Great to hear that things are looking up. I hope you can heal quickly and are feeling better soon. I hope things only continue to improve.

I don't know the gluten statis of Prozac but do be aware that some folks have negative effects from it. Not saying you will but if you notice any problems call your doctor right away as it can make some suicidal. It is a good idea to look up adverse and side effects of any drug IMHO so that you can be aware if any are happening. 

Do read the link provided by Colleen as it also had adverse interactions with many other drugs and even some supplements.

At most only gluten free (which I know in past week I hadnt) since late feb

That is long enough to impact your tests. If your celiac tests come back negative do a gluten challenge for 6 to 8 weeks and then retest.
