DD, 12yrs old, is needing to be tested for gluten issues, as well as whatever else the Dr decided to check, due to some stomach/digestive issues she's been having.  However, and I didn't think to ask the Dr this, DD is not really a huge consumer of wheat/gluten containing products at the best for times, usually only having one serving a day, and she has cut it out completely for the last 2 days.  So, what I am wondering is if the test will still give an accurate result? I'm planning to make her eat gluten for a few days anyway as we also need a stool sample (she's been having diarrhea every couple of days as well, sorry, gross!), should I just make her have bread/pasta, etc, at every meal until later in the week then get the test done?

Any advice appreciated!  I know I need contact the Dr or pathology place and ask them, but I won't get a chance to do that before monday, so any advice in the meantime would be great.

Thank you!
