My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...
Im trying to figure out why i have decreased folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to me..
would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?

Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.
I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.
I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years. I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years. I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so. I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs! I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.
I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season. I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work. The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs. As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy". I asked the nurse about it. She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs, it could be dangerous to get the vaccine. So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine. Anyone else in this boat. Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy? Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
