When to stop eating gluten

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My blood results have come back positive to celiac . I can't get into my doctor till end of month and probably another month before an endoscopy . My question is do I start excluding gluten from by diet  now or should I go and see another doctor earlier and wait till I have results from biopsy.

Hi Jenny, 

Welcome. I know some people have been diagnosed celiac just via blood tests before. I would talk to your doctor and find out what the next steps are. However, I believe that not eating gluten can make your endoscope come back negative for celiac even though your blood tests were positive.

My opinion?  Wait to go gluten free.  It is just a month or two.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work constraints.  I took the time to bid farewell to some of my favorite foods.  

If you do have celiac disease and go gluten free, many folks find that their symptoms are worse when going back in gluten for testing.
