Celiac disease. My doctor put me eat bread with gluten and took blood sample. Two days fatigue, no sleep. Celiac rash. This is wrong! What can I do?

Celiac disease. My doctor put me eat bread with gluten and took blood sample. Two days fatigue, no sleep. Celiac rash. This is wrong! What can I do?

It IS wrong: Unfortunately, insurance companies won't pay benefits unless the blood work is positive, and it will usually not be positive if you are already under treatment. So celiac patients are forced to become sick once again. The US health care system is horribly dysfunctional. I'm sorry this happened, but your physician is as trapped in it as you are. ...Read more

How long does it take to start feeling better after going completely gluten free if you have celiacs disease?

At least a month: Transitioning to being gluten free may take some time. The first few days, even weeks, you may feel pretty lousy. Even worse than before.
