Basic question about blood test

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. i have a simple question.
I'm not sure if i have the celiac disease, at the moment (next date with the doc in a few weeks)


Well, i have a blood test in 2 days and right now i'm in a non-gluten diet
(Only eight or nine days with this...and not very strict, A few misses here and there)

Can this have some severe effect in the results of the test?
Thanks. sorry if this is too basic, kind of a new world to me.

Hi Nevada!

You would think that being on gluten free diet for 10 days would not impact the results of the celiac test, but it might.  See this link to the University's of Chicago's celiac website (one of the top leaders in the US):

Experts recommend consuming 8 to 12 weeks on consuming gluten daily prior to the blood test.  You could take the test, but if it is negative, you might want to retest again after being on a longer gluten-containing diet.  Check with your doctor.

Hey, cyclinglady, thanks for u reply. that was quick ; )

So even if my improvised free-gluten-8 days diet was kinda lame (i made a lot of mistakes with the food, eat a few slices of bread on sunday, some piece of breaded steak, etc) the test could be compromised? even if i quit the diet this next two days until the test?

anyway...imgonna check the pdf.
ty.

PS even with those mistakes, the diet gave me a great relief.

Then I would get the testing.    It sounds like you were really consuming gluten.   Go eat some bread for me!  Let us know how it goes!  ?
