Celiac Tests Conflicting - Now Have To Go Back On Gluten - Need Advice in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac Disease Posted May 14, 2010 · Report to Admin I had a couple antibody tests for Gluten come back high (the doctor said not extremely high, but high enough to be abnormal). My genetic test was 'low risk.' I did a very through gluten-free diet for almost three months (including some new cookware) and have not noticed a significant improvement. I have another health condition, which has stayed about the same. The main thing I noticed was overall less joint pain/body aches. I was told most people with Celiac have quite noticeable improvement and to slowly go back on Gluten (which is needed to do a biopsy). I'm trying to incorporate a little everyday, but am struggling with just how much for how long. Will I have symptoms for going back on Gluten after not eating it for months? Does anyone who has done this before have advice? I would like a biopsy, I think, for a more definitive answer. I have a hard time distinguishing my aches/joint pain (it could be from my other problem, it is hard to tell), and at least a biopsy would let me know if Gluten damages me. Obviously if my pain gets much worse on Gluten, I'll have to eliminate it again after the biopsy. If I feel 'worse' back on Gluten - does that necessarily mean Celiac or could it be Gluten Sensitivity? I spent all this time getting used to gluten-free and now going 'back to normal' is stressful. Thanks!
