Should I try eating gluten products ?

by music girl

Okay so , I've been having really bad stomach aches and pains and my mom thought it may be that i'm intolerant to gluten so she told me to stop eating products for a while. It's been about 4 days since I stopped eating gluten and my stomach pains haven't been as bad . Now my mom wants me to try to eat products containing gluten again . I'm kind of afraid to though because I don't want to get sick .

Steve's Answer:

You might have celiac disease or just gluten intolerant. Tell your Mom to have your doctor test you for celiac disease. You can have a simple blood test to find out. If you are feeling better by not eating gluten than ask your doctor about avoiding it until you know if you have celiac disease or not.

Good luck

If you are to have a blood test for coeliac or an endoscopy you have to eat wheat/gluten for several weeks before-Don't stop until you've seen your GP. I stopped it and now it makes me too ill to eat it again to have a test-So I don't know for sure if I have Celiac or just and intolerance
