In Topic: Think It's Time To Abandon The Gluten Challenge

Update:

 

I had 2 days where I felt awful and then I woke up Sunday morning feeling more or less okay. My back is a bit tight and I've had moments of stomach upset but all in all, totally manageable with some Tylenol. I popped some Immodium in my purse this morning before heading off to my son's IEP meeting but my stomach settled quickly and I didn't need it.

 

So I am going to continue and see how this all plays out.

Tough call.

I Iasted 3 weeks before I became too ill to continue ans my doctor told me to stop.

How long have you been told to do? Do you have a blood test and endoscopy scheduled?

My take in the end was to last as long as I could, then get tested immediately.

The positive for me of having tried was that I 100% knew I bad a problem with gluten and needed to be gluten-free for life.

I was told 2-3 servings of gluten for 6 weeks. Blood test doesn't need to be scheduled, I can get a lab requisition from my GP and can get an appt with her with 2 or 3 days notice. As far as I know, endoscopy would only be scheduled if blood work was positive.

You may be over indulging , I read somewhere in this site, That a slice of bread a day will bring your levels up. 

 

I probably am. I'm just afraid of not having enough. I want to know going in to the testing (if I last that long) that I have definitely done enough to get a positive test if indeed I have Celiac.
