Symptoms Gone Today, Test Tomorrow-still Worth It?

Recommended Posts

My symptoms (severe stomach pains, diarhea, loss of appetite, fatigue) flared up Sunday and Monday but have died down to basically nil today (Wednesday). I am scheduled for a biopsy tomorrow morning.

Is it still worth it? Can I still test positive if my symptoms aren't raging?

Thanks!

Your symptoms do not have to be severe for a biopsy to be positive, but you do need to be on gluten. Are you currently eating gluten-free or have you stayed on gluten for the biopsy?? The biopsy may not accurately show what is going on if you have already been eating gluten-free.

My symptoms (before gluten-free diet) were off and on with some daily, but most occuring a couple times a week and lasting for a few days. What is happening with you is not uncommon.

Good luck with the biopsy tomorrow.

God bless,

Mariann :)
