If someone has been on a Gluten free diet for say 1-2 weeks and they have a biopsy, clould this dramatically change their results?

The docs don't want you to start the gluten free diet before the biopsy but if you have been a Celiac for sometime there probably is enough damage done to the villi that it would take more than a couple of weeks to repair. They say it takes 6 months to 2 years for healing to be complete. Better inform your doctor, however, that you have already been on the gluten free diet.

I was just diagnosed, however I still haven't gotten the official results of the biopsy.

I was feeling bad for about a year and my sister told me she had Celiac Spu. I had no idea what it was and said "so.... I got a fake tree for christmas" :D

My blood work came back positive and my family doctor told me to start the diet right away. After two weeks I felt better than I ever did in the last year. Then my GI specialist called and said do not stay on the diet until after the biopsy because it could come up negative.

I hope we can learn together. This site is great!!
