Need Advice Testing for Celiac Disease

Ok folks for all those who've had a blood test for Celiac Disease,
Must I be consuming gluten for this test to be accurate?!! And for how long?
(Been Gluten Free for over a week now, and my test is on Thursday!)

Well, we'll see if they even "go for" the blood test. They may not be so apt to hear my ideas. We all know how doctors can be about patients self diagnosing! Thanks
