How long does it take to get rid of gluten antibodies?

They are unlikely to be normal by 6 months and can take up to 2 and sometimes even 3 years to normalize, depending on the level of antibodies in the blood at the time of diagnosis. It is a common problem that some physicians tend to repeat the blood tests too early after diagnosis and sometimes too often.

Depending on the amount of damage to the gut, which also takes an average of 2 years to heal after going gluten-free, it's interesting that this time frame is nearly identical. I wonder if the leaky gut condition, and other "non-gluten" proteins passing through the gut, are what keeps the antibody levels higher? I suppose it is more likely that leaky gut and trace amount of cross contamination are the cause, but more studies should be done on why the antibodies on most people don't drop to normal much sooner.
