I am so glad I came across your recent update. I know that I will be requesting a second opinion as well tomorrow and maybe there will be answers. I cut the GI doc I had seen out of the picture today. I had my daughters blood test drawn at the pediatric office I work at and the results will come to her PCP. So I will request a second opinion on the biopsy tomorrow.....I am glad things are getting better for you...and thank you for giving me the information to check further into the HLA and second opinion. My mother,sister,2aunts and myself are all positive and I find it hard to believe my kids are negative with all their symptoms....
Thanks so much!

Mom 2 2 celiac children (age 9 son, age 4 daughter)
My previous post:
I got a call from my daughter's pediatric gastroentrologist that her biopsy results are inconspicuous. Some of the villi are damaged, but others are fine/negative. They want her to start a gluten-free diet for 3 months and will rebiopsy in August. If the 2nd biopsy shows negative because she is on a gluten-free diet, then she does have celiac. I'm very confused by this. I thought you either were or weren't, not probable. I had prepared myself for a positive result and now feel as though we are on the fence. Our 9 year old son is positive for celiac via biopsy and our daughter was first tested by blood tests and her IGG/IGA/TTG were all positive. Then we get the biopsy results and I am feeling confused and overwhelmed. My husband's blood tests were inconclusive as positive IGG/IGA and TTG was negative. They have just done an HLA test and we are awaiting the results of that. Any insight by anyone would be greatly appreciated.
