Re sticking to gluten free diet: from Brooke on 2005-05-30

I have felt absolutely awful for around a year now, and it is only now the doctor is taking notice of me telling him I think it is coeliacs. But because I kind of know this a while ago, I have been on a gluten free diet. So, when my blood test results came back, they were negative because there wasn't much gluten in my body!
I am now to see a gastroentrologist but apparently I have to back on to gluten fully for three weeks. Has anyone else had this problem? I am just dreading the side effects gluten will give me.

Re sticking to gluten free diet: from Peter on 2005-05-30

I had exactly the same problem when I changed doctor a few years ago. My new doctor thought it was about time that I had a full checkup, including new tests for the coeliac condition.- for which I was instructed to eat gluten every day.
The results were somewhat inconclusive, so I looked up the research on the time it takes for gluten to damage your gut and cause all the symptoms - and get a positive results on the tests. The research showed that many people do not develop all the symptoms immediately, and do not always turn up a positive result on the blood tests.

So this is why I always stress that if you think you are reacting badly to gluten, get all the tests done before you put yourself or your child on a gluten-free diet.

If your response to gluten is very obvious and the symptoms go away on a gluten-free diet, and tests are not practical, then discuss it with your doctor before you start a gluten-free diet.

But the short answer is yes - anyone taking tests for the coeliac condition must continue eating gluten until the tests are complete, and be prepared for inconclusive results if you have been gluten-free for some time.

Re UK Gluten Free Beer: from Deaz on 2005-06-12

Hello from down under,

My friend is shattered at the prospect of life without beer (as she has celiac) so I've been on the hunt for gluten free beer for a Christmas present. It's a shame that we don't appear to have this product readily available in Australia as there is a massive and growing market for it. Thanks for all the tips.
