Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I didn't suspect that gluten was the root of my problems. It was discovered that I might be celiac by my neuro. Prior to that I had such a severe loss of appetite I barely ate, coupled with an aversion to many foods (really anything processed, bread, cereals etc) that I probably only consumed gluten once or twice a week for nearly a year. Since I had the positive ttg igg I was told not to consume gluten so I've been off and on. I read that I need to eat it so the biopsy is accurate, but with my neurological symptoms I get scared and eat gluten for two days and then stop for a day or two.

So I have 9 days until my endoscopy  - what do I need to eat to help my diagnosis if it is celiac. I saw a recommendation of two slices of bread - does it matter what type - is white worse then wheat? I have eaten a considerably larger amount of gluten the past 3 weeks then over the past year, but probably only 4 days a week average.  Suggestions?

Katie, it is hard to give you advice when we are not "walking in your shoes".  But if I were to risk terrible symptoms if would be for artisan breads, pastries  and cakes and not some tasteless old white bread.

I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.

Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.

I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
