    When I was younger and the world was different, I would never have even considered cheating anyone including the Gov't. Today I'm completely opposite. But if you're willing to cheat, why not just lie and say you've been eating gluten for 3 months. It probably won't change the results at all.

    You can get money for being a coeliac?! Why wasn't I told this?

    Meh, then again, I hate gluten-free products, and most of the stuff I buy is pretty cheap anyway.

    It absolutely WILL make you have a false negative. They look for damage caused by gluten. No gluten means no damage means false negative. Since in the US you get punished for an official celiac diagnosis (higher life and health insurance premiums) I skipped the endoscopy because the blood work was enough to convince me.
