gluten-free for 5 days, will test be accurate?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I’m a concerned mother of a 7yo with stomach issues. I started him on a gluten free diet (after getting no direction from his doctor) to see if it would help. He’s supposed to have a blood test today for celiac and I want to be sure it will be accurate. He’s only been gluten free for five days. Thoughts?

Technically you should have waited, but if he has celiac disease the test would likely still record something that indicates gluten sensitivity. Keep in mind that if the results are not over the cut off line for celiac disease, this might be due to the gluten-free diet before the test. It's too bad that they didn't mention this, and you may wish to bring this up before doing the test to see if they want to postpone it. More info on this is here:
