    The stool test looking for the presence of infections does not require consuming gluten to be accurate. It does have an aspect that will show if the person is? staying off gluten well or not so the recent accidental exposures may show up.

    Does the stool test require a recent gluten exposure? My child (3 years old) has been off gluten for eight months. There has been two accidental exposures recently. I wouldn’t want to repeat it for the sake of a? test but it would be useful to know.
