  1. I went to the doctor a few weeks ago because I was getting very sick. She asked me questions and said to try a gluten free diet for 2 weeks. I did and felt amazing. I never knew how normal felt until I stopped eating gluten. I must have been having stomach aches my whole life. Anyways I called her after the 2 weeks and asked her what to do now. She said to get a test called gluten sensitivity evaluation blood test and to get an accurate test I need to eat the equivalence of 4-6 pieces of bread a day for 4 weeks. Is this true? I was only off of it for 2 weeks! and what does that even mean? Just eat 4 pieces of bread a day? Any suggestions?
