Too Soon To Get Tested?

06 May 2014 - 06:01 PM

I have been mostly gluten-free for about three years after finding out that our son, who was 16 at the time, has celiac. As the years went on I became increasingly convinced that I also have celiac disease (lots of symptoms and also finding out that my father had it). I made an appointment with a gastroenterologist and he has ordered bloodwork, but suggested that I wait until later this week to have it drawn so that my time on a normal diet will be right at a month. I'm wondering if it's a good idea to go ahead at this point, or if I should continue eating gluten for a few more weeks. I had read an article about a test being developed that didn't require a lengthy gluten challenge but I'm not sure that it's being used yet. Does anyone know for sure if my results would be valid at this point?
