Once in a while I just like to try to catch the attention of someone I think can help with a thread.

 

As for my mailbox, I will soon not be receiving mail, because I can't part with so many messages from the last 2 years!

I guess I thought you were the one that did 3 annual endoscopies.  I noticed a couple of endoscopy threads that I wondered if you could help with.  Oh, yeah one thread seemed to be saying there would be no damage left after 2 years gluten free.  I have no idea where that thread was anymore.  Another thread finally has some answers now.  Thanks.

Yep...I had four endoscopies...one each year for four years...the first three were similar. Only the last showed minor improvement, but still marsh iii b's and c's.

I do not have refractory celiac.

Edited to add: my case is not the norm. While many folks have lingering symptoms, most have villi recover substantially in correlation to their improved celiac antibody and nutrient absorption levels. My antibodies are all near zero and nutrients have all recovered well.

Thanks, I am 2+ years gluten free and facing a colonoscopy, so why not do the endoscopy at the same time? I had decades, ( if not a lifetime of damage), so I expect it to take a long while.  Though I am well,  I am still in transition with feelings of constant healing, but still have some tenderness in the intestine at least at times.  I could see if I could get diagnosed by endoscopy or if healing has taken place.  NO WAY need I to think of a gluten challenge.  I am going to try to consult with the GI doctor to see if they know what they are doing first.  Also, if they care to look without the gluten challenge. 

 

Hopefully, everyone will post their ideas for questions in the other thread.

    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
