I have just had some intolerance tests that say I have Gluten Intolerance, I have been gluten free for 24 days now.does anybody know how long it takes to get gluten out of the body. When is a good time to start pro biotic treatment. 

Were you tested for Celiac?  Currently, there are no medically accepted tests for non- Celiac gluten intolerance.

 

Gluten doesn't stay in your body and hide.  It goes through the GI system just like any other food - so it probably comes out the other side in 24-48 hours. Depending on how slow your system works.

Welcome to the board.  You can take probiotics whenever you want to whether you are gluten free or not. Have you had testing for celiac done by an MD?  If so what were your results? If not it would be a good idea to stay on gluten and get that testing done. As Karen said the gluten item leaves your body in a short time but if you are celiac the antibody reaction can last for up to 3 or 4 weeks in some.

I was wondering the same thing about how long gluten stays in your body, i was  just diagnosed with Celiac and was told to start a gluten free diet, however my Upper GI Scope isn't for 2 more weeks.  The nurse said they would probably to a biopsy to confirm the celiac, i'm wondering if i start the gluten free diet now if the biopsy will be accurate.

Gluten stays in your body for as long as any food, depending on your transit time (varies per person).  It is the antibodies that are circulating in your body that is causing possible damage to the small intestine.  Researchers say to maintain a gluten diet until all testing is complete and the doctor has given you a diagnosis.

You're supposed to keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done & you have the diagnosis.

Hi, new member here. I was just diagnosed with celiac a few days ago ( did a stool and blood test, not sure which one determins?)  my doctor said it was a minor positive ( whatever that means? ) for celiac.  she told me to go gluten free and i have for the past 3 days though my scope isn't until the end of January.  I see a post on here saying that your supposed to keep eating gluten till the scope? Why would I be told to stop so early before the scope?

Hmm you need to start a new topic you just posted on a thread from 2016. TO answer your question yes, you need to be eating gluten at least 2 weeks prior to a scope.

As to why...most doctors are frankly uneducated about this disease. There is no money for them in it either as it has to be treated by diet alone. I might suggest looking up the newbie101 section.....3 days in..is not much. It can take weeks to months for your antibodies to go down from a exposure. A crumb can set it back off if you have been gluten free for awhile. Plus I doubt your eating 100% gluten free. Forgive the slap in the face, but have use been using the same condiment jars with gluten residue in them? Same toasters? Same cooking pans and pots? What about that glutened colander?" Been using it to wash you gluten free pasta and veggies? Are you sure your condiments, spices, snacks, etc are gluten free? There is a HUGE learning curve to this disease and CC is everywhere til your set up for it and used to label reading and honestly most restaurants can not do gluten-free without CC issues. If you need help finding foods, supplements or other information me and others will be glad to help guide you and make the transition as simple as possible.

I know I’m late to the party but just my 2 cents for people on the forum who’ve tested positive for celiac in their blood test and now are scheduled to take their endoscopy. It can take over 3 years of a gluten free diet to reduce the GI inflammation that’s picked up in the endoscopy.

If your symptoms are so terrible that you need immediate relief, this reeeally should not impact the doctors ability to confirm your celiac diagnosis via the endoscopy 2 weeks from now.
