Was My Gluten Challenge Too Short?

By Kanaaz Pereira, Connect Moderator, @kanaazpereira

How do we make the diagnosis of celiac disease in the patient who is already avoiding gluten? Dr. Joseph Murray, M.D., answers this question, and provides valuable insight into the often confounding topic of ‘gluten challenge.’

Dr. Murray explains the science behind this trend, and empahsizes, "A gluten challenge needs to be done deliberately, and under medical supervision, ideally with follow-up tests already scheduled." Join the discussion on Mayo Clinic Connect, a place to share your experiences with others living with celiac and find support from people like you.

Dr. Murray is a gastroenterologist and celiac disease expert at Mayo Clinic.
