Queserasera added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsNegative Endoscopy!I was so sure I had celiac. But my endoscopy and biopsies came back negative. I've been eating gluten free for close to a month now and haven't had any issues - except for the two times I cheated. Ugh I am so frustrated! My dr wants me to keep eating gluten free for a month before he does any other tests. What else could it be? IBS?

Queserasera added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsWhat Do You Think?I have had GI issues for about 15 years now. For a long time I would think it was a certain food(s) then cut it out of my diet. For example, ranch dressing on salad, Alfredo sauce on pasta, dips when I was eating chips or crackers.
The weird thing is that after I had both of my children, my symptoms went away for about 2 years or so. I got to a point where I wasn't eating anything except bread products but was still getting sick and couldn't figure out why.
I finally sucked it up and went to my regular dr who said based on my symptoms (basically just D not a ton of stomach pain or other issues) that it was IBS. Then she asked me if I had noticed any foods lately that we're bothering me. Once I said that I knew bagels gave me an issues. Once I said that she said that it could be celiac and sent me to have an endoscopy done.
While waiting to visit the GI dr and then for the endoscopy I tried going off gluten for a few days before reading that I shouldn't do that until I was diagnosed. So I went back to it but only a little bit every day. A couple days ago I had a lot of gluten and man did I pay for it within a few hrs.
I had my endoscopy today and have to wait for the biopsy results. But I thought they could tell from looking that it was celiac? What do you guts think? Does this sound like celiac or IBS?
