Upcoming Endoscopy In 2 Months Gluten Free 1 Month

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free since this Feb. 1, the first week I had major withdrawals and tried to eat gluten 6 days after going gluten free for testing purposes. Prior to going gluten-free I never suspected celiac and started the diet alongside my daughter for support. After trying to reintroduce gluten after only 6 days I got really sick with major D and had to go to urgent care with dehydration, nausea, cramps, etc. I had my appt. with the G.I. doctor last week and they are recommending a colonoscopy and endoscopy the earliest appt is in 2 months. The G.I. doctor was in and out and I mostly dealt with the P.A.

 

My question is, I know about the gluten challenge but I don't think I can stomach that. Is there smaller amounts I can take. How would some of you recommend I approach going back on gluten for testing purposes. Or should I just go for the test and hope for the best since I've gotten so sick from being glutened. I also learned that I can't tolerate dairy and gluten-free processed foods like cereal. I feel best when I eat soups, vegetables and proteins and limit the amounts of safe grains.

 

Some of my longtime symptoms of over 15 years have improved in just 1 month like psorasis and hair falling so I know I'm on the right track being gluten free.

 

Any recommendations on gently reintroducing gluten? Or am I symptoms severe enough that my body wouldn't heal that quickly for the test?

 

Thanks for the help!

I'm new so I'm still learning. I'm also going through testing. Someone on here told me one slice of bread a day is enough gluten for testing. Of course we are all different and that could be too much. Maybe someone more experienced has better advice. That's just what I was told.
