Hi All! I just found out I have the celiac gene. My brother has it too; he was diagnosed with celiac. My sister also has the gene but she was diagnosed NCGS. I have tried twice to do the gluten challenge so I can get proper blood work and this last time (last Friday) I got so sick I missed two days of work this week. I am just today feeling like myself again. I only stopped eating gluten about two months ago (except for the two times I ate gluten in the last two weeks). Do you think my blood work would still come back positive or is it a waste to test at this point without doing the gluten challenge? Or maybe the challenge gets easier the longer you do it? I would like to get a proper diagnosis but I can't lose my job. Thanks in advance for any advice.
