CoreySmith1200 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithGetting GlutenedI have been a diagnosed celiac for 7 months now and have been clean for 4 months or so, I just outright ate a chocolate muffin that was just a regular muffin that was organic and gluten free (someone put it in the gluten free section by mistake) I am not sure what is going to happen as this is kinda my first real glutened accident. My parents both don't think I have it, what should I look for or watch for for symptoms. At this time is has been 1 he since I are it. I had 3 bites then thought it was too good to be true and it was...

CoreySmith1200 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Feedback, I Am Confused With Doctors Diagnosisok so I was diagnosed with celiacs a little bit before Christmas. I tested positive for two things in a blood test. the doctor orderd me a biopsy to check that I had celiacs. I had the biopsy done mid febuary and tested negative. heres the thing, I was never told to eat gluten before the biopsy to make sure the celiacs could be seen, which is why the doctor thinks I may have celiacs regardless. but since being diagnosed I have had many incedences where I have mistakenly ate gluten. I had been eating rice crispies since the diagnosis and didn't realize they weren't gluten free untill during the super bowl on febuary 3rd. then I stopped eating them. I also had ate some cookies that I thought were gluten free that my mom made but they were in fact just regular cookies. also my cafeteria had served my the wrong food sometimes, for example I have a special breaded chicken that is gluten free, once they mixed up my breaded chicken and gave me real "breaded chicken" gluten and all and I took a bite and chewed and spit it out after I saw the chicken in the sandwitch. and tonight I just realized for the last month I have been eating wild harvest organic cookies that my mother thought were gluten free ( they were on the shelf labed organic next to the gluten free shelf and costed less than the glutino brand...) so I stopped eating those tonight. I just turned 18 years old.
My question is, with all the mistakenly eaton gluten and with the negative biopsy for celiacs, when in fact I believe I had been eating gluten, is it possible that I don't have celiacs? I mean in 4 months can a small intestine heal so good that you test negative for celiacs in a biopsy even when u have been eating gluten? I am also about to have a test for chrones disease done to...
ps. sorry for the spelling and stuff, I had to rewrite this whole thing because the page froze...
