For how long the antibodies IgA and IgG on gluten stay in body?

I kept a gluten-free diet for a long time, but I think there were a lot of so-called "hidden" gluten (in chocolates, coffee, sauces). Then I kept an ideal diet for a 7 days. After that I passed tests for antibodies IgA and IgG for gluten, they were negative. Does this mean that there was no hidden gluten in my previous diet? Or antibodies had been already left my body in that 7 days?

Probably no gluten in them it can take 12 weeks for antibodies to show in the blood stream, and they can linger for about that long also..."hidden" gluten depends on the food and product the  term is more of a fear monger thing. It probably was referring to stuff that somehow might get CCed but test below the limit but you always have the kind of chance with the food industry. Coffee is almost always gluten free, unless the facility does flavoring and might use malt. barley, or in newer cases they do coffee and a roasted barley beverage in the same facility so some brands have gluten CC. Chocolate, if done in a facility that processes wheat like some candy companies might be contaminated, raw cocoa beans are not grown in a way that would normally expose them, but the processing plant might. Sauces, spices are commonly CCed if not sourced right and many sauce companies might use soy sauce, contaminated seasonings, malt flavoring, or in rare cases wheat flour. Find brands you trust and stick to them like many of us do, if a brand or company has a "Sauced Line" or "seasoned Line" of product like green giant and birdseye started doing you might find cases of CC in some batch of product of plain veggies again that "hidden Gluten" not the product but the company and process that gets it there. I once got CCed leafy greens....the raw produce at a grocery store was RIGHT NEXT to the open air bakery where flour had drifted over and settled on them.

Wash your produce, watch the brand you buy, and play it safe and the so called "Hidden Gluten" is just a scare tactic.

It might mean that you never had antibodies specific for celiac disease.  Were you tested prior to going gluten free two years ago?  That would give you a baseline.  To test for celiac disease after being on a gluten free diet would require a gluten challenge for 8 to 12 weeks (less for the endoscopy).  

There is no research indicating that antibodies can drop in as little as one week.  Usually they take months to drop or even years.
