Xp: Dd Having Endoscopy Friday...should I Gluten Her Up?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Any experience with this? Should I push more gluten full items to be sure the endoscopy gets an accurate result? If so, what should I feed her?

Any help would be appreciated.

What is the purpose of the endoscopy? Does she have a diagnosis yet? Is she currently eating gluten?

Purpose of endoscopy is to test for Celiac. No diagnosis yet. However she was just diagnosed this week with Congenital Hypothyroidism. She is still eating gluten (she is only on a dairy and soy free diet) but I'm not all that knowledgeable about what products contain gluten vs. those that don't.

An influx of gluten just before an endoscopy would not make much difference. It takes considerable time for the antibodies to do measurable damage to the villi. If she has been eating a "normal" diet loaded with gluten on a regular basis then the conditions should be right for a meaningful result.
