I agree. Two days is nothing.  Most doctors will recommend eating gluten for 2-3 months prior to celiac testing.

 

If you are doing a food sensitivities test from a naturopath (based on IgG testing) then you probably only need a few days of exposure.  Those tests will not tell you if you have celiac disease though, and they are not widely recognized as medically valid tests... That being said, I know of a few people who had great luck with those tests (but about as many who did not).

 

Best wishes.

To confirm these caring ladies' accurate advice.....read these links regarding celiac blood testing from the University of Chicago's celiac website (a leading researcher in the U.S.).  Learn more about celiac disease within this website too!

That's what I thought. My Family dr is doing a celiac panel...shes the one who said two days. I am seeing my gastro in May....Im hoping he will give me the correct information if he is doing any tests. I was doing so well for two months...and now I am eating gluten again and feeling horrible.

Try saving your gluten meals for later in the day so you day isn't as disrupted.... just your sleep.  ;)  JK  It does help some to eat their gluten in the evening though.

 

Good luck with it!
