Gluten Free Or Not Before Endoscopy ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am new on here and in the UK. I have just had a positive Blood test for Coeliac Disease as ordered by my GP due to long standing Anaemia and Digestive disturbances and I am due to see the Upper GI Specialist in a month for an Endoscopy, my Doc told me that in the meantime stick to a Gluten free Diet but I was wondering if that would in anyway affect the Endoscopy results, i.e give a false negative if that is possible ?

Many thanks in advance.

I am also completely Phobic about the Endoscopy, I understand that it is usually given under sedation but I do not want to know anything about it, I had sedation to have a tooth removed and could remember most of the procedure !

You do need to stay on gluten until the endo is done or you risk a false negative. You could have a false negative even on the diet so you want the best chance you have at getting an accurate result.

Talk to the GI about your fears of the anesthesia not working. The anesthesiologist will make sure you are out.
