Negative Biopsies Vs. Positive Biopsies

Just curious, how many of you had negative biopsies and positive blood work?

Also, those of you with positive biopsies, was your physician able to tell just from

Looking during the endoscopy that your villi were flattened or did the biopsy via microscope confirm Celiacs?

Thanks so much!

I had positive blood work as well as a positive biopsy. And no, my GI was not able to confirm celiac visually with the scope. I had to wait for the results of the biopsy. Unless damage is really bad, I think it's doubtful that it could be seen during the endoscopy.

First positive bloodwork, then biopsy was negative. Went back on gluten, this time bloodwork was negative.
