    Ah okay - I've heard of pre-diabetes before. I didn't know the official name for it. Have you been able to reverse it? I would imagine that in a sense that diagnosis was quite a relief as opposed to the other one.

    If I decide to get tested (and the soonest dr appt is Oct 4) would I mess up the test if I decided now to try gluten free for a week and see how I feel? Would that be enough time to even notice any difference?

    2 weeks is best, imo.

    And missed your question: Not yet, but it's only a recent discovery. It's nice to have an answer to something which has been bothering me for years and years and caused me to be scared of food.

    What are you going to get tested for? Just the antibodies?

    Immune complexes tend to stick around in the body for a little while but I'd continue to eat gluten. Be aware that depending on what tests are used and how they are read (some are read by a tech) may lead to a false negative. If you do have a positive test, you definitely need to continue to eat gluten in order for your biopsy results to show celiac disease.

    Mm, yes...pre-diabetes is supposed to be reversible.

    I would just keep eating your normal, typical diet.

    Yes, and as Redbone says, the blood tests are notorious for false negatives ... and here's a link for you on the tests:
