Recommended Posts

Hi everybdody,

Thanks to all you for your time and help. I am wondering if going gluten free can become me intolerant in case I don't have Celiac. I don't know if there is some risk of going gluten free for a while??????. I went gluten free after my biopsia and got a lot better. The biopsia came back negative and my dr told me to try gluten. I did and everything turned back again. I don't know if it means I am intolerant or if been gluten free for a month affected me. Please, any help.

Thanks,

George.

Hi, I'm sorry, I have not been around lately so you may have already answered these questions.... I assume you had a Celiac panel blood work done? What were your results? You can be non-celiac gluten intolerant and suffer as much as if you were diagnosed with Celiac. Many doctors don't get this. Also, I imagine you could still have Celiac with a negative biopsy.

Good luck to you!

What you did was a challenge and your body gave you the answer as to whether or not you should eat gluten. You should let your doctor know what happened. A challenge can be part of the diagnostic process and an important one. If your body feels better without gluten that is, in my opinion, the most important thing.

I'd read in the book "Going Gluten-Free For Dummies", and MANY places online, that there is a strong chance of a false negative when it comes to tests for gluten intolerance. Furthermore, the longer you'd been going gluten-free before taking the test, the greater the chance of it turning up negative, especially if it's a gastroenterologist's test rather than, say, a genetic test or something else.

So I'd say you have Celiac/GI, but the test was wrong. I'd recommend avoiding gluten, period. If your doctor doesn't believe you, well, lots of people said they had the same problem.

Eating gluten free for a time does not make you gluten intolerant. You probably eat certain foods for holidays or special events that you don't eat at other times of the year. Do you react to those foods? No, because not eating them all year does not make you intolerant to them. If you are reacting to gluten you body is telling you, that you cannot tolerate it. Listen to you body, don't eat gluten.
