Scalloping And Redness Seen During Endoscopy, Moderate Positive Ttg--Has Anyone's Child Had This And Gotten Negative Biopsy Results?
0

12 posts in this topic

I guess the title of this thread says it all, lol. I am not very good at waiting for results, and our follow up test is almost a month away :(

Just wondering what the likelihood of getting a negative biopsy result is in a 6 year old with this bloodwork along with visible changes during the endoscopy?

He has been gluten free since Wednesday, just curious of your experiences....

Thanks :)

I think if the damage is bad enough that they can see it, the biopsies will have to be positive for Celiac.  The villa are the first to be damaged and that is microscopic damage.

I'm guessing that you will get a positive result back.  The damage would need to be pretty extensive for it to be visible.  If for some reason it does come back negative, don't assume he doesn't have celiac.  A positive blood test is a positive blood test.

 

Is he feeling better gluten free?  Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better.

Thank you for your responses :)

He has been gluten free since Wednesday and I can already see a difference in him. He has more colour in his cheeks, his face sees fuller, he has been eating a lot more, and the scale has gone up 3 pounds!! Since Wednesday!! I KNOW that he has Celiac Disease, I guess I am just so worried about not having a definitive diagnosis that I am graping for other people's experiences.....

Having to wait a whole month for results is going to make me crazy!!

A month is crazy -- try calling the doctor's office after a week -- my path is usually back within that time period.  Make sure you ask for written copies of both the doctor's procedure report and the pathology report!

Argh.. the Dr said she should have the results approx 2 weeks from the scope.... I will call her then!

As for the time being.... I am slowly going crazy, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 switch!

Mine were about 3 days.  The docs office isn't processing them well!

Waiting, waiting, waiting, lol. I called the Dr's office last Friday and left a message for someone to call me back. A nurse called me back on Monday and apparently the Dr is on vacation until next Tuesday. She told me to call next Tuesday and she would probably give me the results over the phone.

Things are going well here otherwise though. I just watched my son eat 3 slices of gluten free pizza when it has always been a struggle for him to eat one slice of normal pizza without curling up in a ball afterwards! And no more complaining about belly aches after eating! The dark circle seem to have faded from below his eyes somewhat, and his cheeks have colour in them again. 2 weeks and 1 day gluten free and already such a change in his physical ailments and appearance! Such a great feeling when we have spent the past two years watching him waste away and become so pale and ashen.....

I just hope to goodness that the biopsy results come back positive so that we have 100% proof.... I am the worrying kind, and negative results wouldn't convince me to change his diet, but I would always worry that there was something else wrong that the Dr missed. Send some good vibe out into the universe for us if you get the chance if you can! Xo!

This is reason to be happy!   Testing is such a pain.

 

Even better news is the improvement you have already seen.

 

I am over-the-moon happy for your family :D

 

Let us know if you have any questions.

I can totally understand you being happy and excited about him having a positive test result.  It means you can start getting him healthy.  In the first few months you will be BOMBARDED with people giving you advice about his diet ("my neighbor cured herself by eating a little bit of wheat every day . . ").  Get ready to just smile and nod while you know better.  I was also very surprised by the skeptics who simply didn't believe that wheat could make him sick and that I was just trying to control everything by controlling his diet.  People are weird.

 

Be sure to get the whole family tested - I found out I was positive after my son was diagnosed.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
