Is it possible to have Celiac Disease when all endoscopy, internal biopsies and celiac blood test say otherwise? I think I may have DH and I'm having a skin biopsy at the end of this week but I am concerned about it and would like to find out more about the chances of having Celiac Disease and not having any tests confirm it. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 62 years ago and now I wonder what I may have had if it wasn't Celiac Disease.

Thanks for all replies.

Elaine :)

I think it's possible to have false negatives on tests for celiac disease. There are some individuals with DH who do not have the intestinal damage that indicates celiac disease, but these people are still gluten intolerant.
