  1. I was just diagnosed with Celiac and have been wondering about the same thing! I had positive blood tests, visual signs of damage during the endoscopy, and the histologist's report (biopsy) came back positive. No one has contacted me about how I should respond to the results (I went through my GP). Should I find a specialist, a dietician? I started the gluten-free diet three weeks ago, and the only thing I've noticed is a slight clearing of my skin and *maybe* more energy, *maybe* less diarrhea. These things were very mild to begin with and something I always had and so I didn't think anything was unusual. (I did have severe symptoms from malabsorption as a child in the 70s, but my parents thought I had outgrown Celiac Disease.) Anyway, I wouldn't be able to tell if I had eaten gluten. Thanks for clearing up the question. I'll expect to have to do the blood test periodically. I'm assuming that even though I don't feel sick from eating gluten, I still shouldn't eat it because of the damage it's done to the intestine and the positive biopsy? I suppose I should contact a specialist instead of waiting for the GP to call me. I just got the histology report back last week and so maybe she is just a little behind.
