Just keep eating gluten!   I took the time between blood tests and endoscopy to bid gluten goodbye.  I ate all my favorite things!  It made me sicker, but it also made it easier for me to give up gluten for life.  You will just have to address other issues if discovered by your doctor, when you cross that bridge.

You had a positive on the celiac blood test, right? So, based on the algorithm, you should proceed to biopsy.

Now, keep in mind that the small intestine is vast (size of tennis court).  So, even if negative, your GI may recommend trialing the gluten-free diet.  (You could just be in the early stages of development).  The goal though is to get well.  Keep that in mind.
