For The Test

I had the blood test and it was positive and now I am going to have the biopsy. For the blood test I had to keep eating gluten first. Do I need to for the biopsy/scope?

Yes. The antibodies are triggered by ingesting gluten, and the villous atrophy is caused by the antibodies. If you stop eating gluten, you will stop producing antibodies, and your villi will begin to heal, leading to an increased likelihood of a false negative result of the biopsy.
