Gluten Challenge Question For The Gluten Light

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am throwing this out to adult land because the kids board isn't very active.

Long story short, my daughter has been gluten free at home but eating gluten at least a few times a week outside the home. This is because my younger child probably has celiac per his GI (also a long story).

My daughter has been having some tummy troubles and GI wants her blood panel done.

Question is, if she hasnit been consistently ingesting gluten, but still eating it a few times a week, does she really need a 6 week gluten challenge?

My understanding was the damage does not go away unless you are completely gluten free for a while. So wouldn't her test results accurately reflect since she was never really gluten free?

My understanding is that this child has not yet been diagnosed or had problems in the past, but because other people in the household have to be gluten-free, she is eating gluten-free meals with the rest of them, and only eating gluten outside of the house, so the OP is wanting to know if that amount is enough.


I would say to be on the safe side, if your daughter can stand it, do the U of C recommended 12 weeks of daily intake.  That way you don't have any so-so results to go by.
