I Won't Eat It Again

Recommended Posts

On a whim, I stopped gluten. I have had Chronic right lower quadrant pain for ten years. I also usually have a BM maybe twice a week. If I drink beer my face and hands swell and I get abnormally sick ,unable to leave my bed. The pain is gone now I wake up without a swollen face , I have some new stomach pains but not the old one and these are tolerable. So do I have to eat it again to get a biopsy I really don't want to

Yes you would need to go back to gluten for biopsy or blood test. You could go with Enterolab for stool testing for antibodies if you want testing without the gluten challenge. You also have to option of just staying on the diet if you choose.
