Any Harm In Cutting Down While Waiting To Test?

Recommended Posts

I know I have to eat some gluten for accurate testing, but would it hurt to cut down? I figure it certainly wouldn't make me feel worse. It would also be helpful in several ways to slowly start making "the switch" I'm almost certain I'm going to do.

Basically, I've bought several gluten-free cereals and bread to replace most of my breakfasts and lunches. I figured I'd keep eating dinner, snacks and meals out to my usual for now.

Your best off to continue with your regular diet and not going gluten light until the tests are done. There is a chance of a false negative even on a full gluten diet. The day they finish your testing you can go gluten free.
