Reintroducing For Gi Testing...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi again :)

So if I reintroduce gluten to get a coeliac blood test done and I react as badly as I have done after 6wks gluten free, will the discomfort subside with a buildup of gluten? Or will I have cramps and upset stomach plus sickness and sinus for the whole time (6 wks I believe)?

My sister thinks that as I had no gastro symptoms before that if I just start eating wheat again I'll be ok in a few weeks once my gut gets used to it and this reaction is purely because I starved the gut of gluten then ate it again... I'm pretty sure if my body reacts like this it is a warning sign - no?

It's hard to say. Everyone reacts differently. I've even reacted differently each time I've gotten glutened. Hope it all works out.

And, since everyone is different, 6 weeks may not be long enough to show up on tests. My doctor said 3-6 MONTHS.

Cripes... I wish I'd know all that before going gluten-free! Ack well. I'll test a wee bit after our holiday and hope it doesn't hurt :(
