How Many Days Of Gluten Before Blood Test?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been eating gluten-free for a few months now, but want to confirm (or try to) my celiac status. For how many days should I eat gluten before taking the test?

THANK YOU!!!

3 to 4 slices of bread or the equivalent for about 3 months is what is usually advised. Be aware that even with the challenge you could still have a false negative on testing. If the challenge makes you ill then that is pretty diagnostic in itself.

holy cow! i was super excited to gluten myself with everything i've been missing, but only for a few days... i don't think i can keep it up for 3 months. it's only day 2 and i've yet to have a bowel movement (my biggest symptom) :(

thank you for the advice. i should probably just assume and accept.
