How To Do Gluten Challenge?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Went to a specialist today who is wants me to eat gluten until my endoscopy on Jan. 25th. He said to eat one "normal, gluten containing meal per day". Of course, my natural instinct is to go and get Chinese food or pizza, but I'm scared to death that I'll wake up at 3am and run to the bathroom. :(

How exactly do I handle doing the gluten challenge? Anyone have any tips/pointers/words of wisdom? ;)

I've read that you have to eat the equivalent of 3 slices of bread per day for a really long time for a postive result. You're braver than I am. I would rather chew nails than to do a gluten challenge. I've thought about it, and dismissed it in two minutes after thinking about how terrible I felt on gluten. Good luck to you. I hope it's not too bad!

I felt terrible too, but I NEED to know if I have to avoid any food that might have gluten, or not. I told the doc that I'd give it a try and if it becomes unbearable I'll quit. I just hope that about 5 to 6 weeks is long enough of eating gluten to get an accurate result- don't want to do all this for nothing!!

He also is doing the genetic test, and another blood panel, so I'm hoping that one way or another I'll get some accurate, informative results... finally. ;)
