    Will it show up if I eat wheat and gluten if I am allergic to it the day before?>

    I suspect I may be allergic. I also suspect it makes me bleed.

    Any advice?

    They are going to clean you out before hand anyway.

    It may be that they will look for signs of Coeliac disease or a reaction to Gluten or wheat such as flatttened villi or tissue damage in the gut.

    To be sure you have this reaction, and so they can see it in the test, you need to have been eating wheat and gluten for some time beforehand or it may be missed.

    Perhaps you should give the Doctor a call if you are unsure.
