Testing Questions

After years of stomach issues, I have finally related my symptoms to a negative response to gluten. In order to test this theory I went on a gluten free diet for about 2 weeks. As a result, my symptoms did go away, so I set up an appointment to get tested. Afterwards, I learned from the internet (not my doctor) that I needed to still be eating gluten in order for the tests to be accurate. At this point, I reintroduced gluten to my diet for about a week before my test. I just got the results back and it was negative. Is this a short enough period of time being off gluten to remove the antibodies from my system? If so, how long should I try to be back on gluten before I get an endoscopy? I go back to school (11 hours from my doctor) on Jan. 5...

Thank you for your help!!
