    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!)

    yes you gotta eat gluten..alot of it..even if it makes you sick..you gotta eat it for at least one month..not just a few days or weeks..but, one month..then you make go for the biopsie..the blood test is not as accurate

    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
