Gluten Challenge

Recommended Posts

Here's the short of it: misdiagnosed a couple of times before i noticed the abnormal blood test results, self diagnosed celiac (or at least sensitive to gluten)ended up going to see a specialist at Univ.. of Chicago who has done everything to rule out everything and is down to the endoscopy and biopsy to check for structural abnormalities. so, after being gluten free for two full months, i am back on gluten for a two week challenge before the endoscopy. I am only on the third day of the challenge and I feel so terrible, I want to quit.....any advice? Do i keep going or call the dr. office and let them know how awful i am feeling this early in the game (obviously gluten is an issue)?

I am ready to quit now! :(

Since it is very likely that you will have a negative biopsy anyway after being gluten-free for two months, you might as well quit. And yes, you should call the GI and tell him that you aren't able to keep eating gluten, because it is making you too sick.

Some GIs will give you a diagnosis based on what the gluten challenge did to you, especially because you had positive blood tests.
