  1. Haha, many thanks both. @NVS, I've actually grabbed some beer for the first time in a while today for precisely this reason! I'll push it back a week, I think. @ Kareng, thanks for the antibodies info, that's good to know. One month gluten-free (well, 25 days or something) should still lots of them floating around them, but I'm stuffing myself full of whole wheat food at the moment to try and get them up. Thanks all for the advice
  2. Interesting, thanks both. I'll try and push it back. Will a month of gluten-free have been enough to set me back to "zero" in terms of the blood test, then?
  3. Hi all, I've been bloated for about six months, which roughly equates to the time I stopped eating white bread/pasta and started eating brown. I've always had trouble putting on weight/muscle, and this has been (I think) more severe in the last few months. So, I thought I might have coeliac, and I've not been eating wheat or gluten products for the last month. I *think* it has improved the bloat, though it's hard to say. However, since I haven't seen a lot of difference, I've booked in a blood test for a week today, and I'm going to resume eating gluten products. As I say, I've been gluten-free for a month. Will a week of eating lots of gluten products be sufficient for the blood test to be accurate, or should I push it back a little? Thanks in advance!
