My son SHOULD have been diagnosed as a child but he was 16 before we figured it out.
He recovered in 6 months.
But we don't know about his insides...just that he felt way way better and could function normally again.
You wanted to do the test and you did it.
So there's no sense in worrying yourself to death about it now.
You could go to the Dr. and check your vitamin levels to see if you are deficient in anything.
You could request a bone scan to be sure your bones are in good shape.
They can do an EKG on your heart in 2 minutes to tell you if there is anything wrong with your heart.
Instead of worrying - just get a few tests done to see where you stand healthwise.
Could do a Celiac Panel again to see if you are making antibodies...and what the numbers are.
But if it is negative, don't assume you can eat gluten because you were diagnosed with it before.
The good news is that since you WERE diagnosed as a child, you have lived most of your life gluten free.
The very serious secondary diseases I think happen to those of us who went undiagnosed for all of our lives.
You could also get an endoscopy done and see what kind of damage you have.
If everything else is good, I would assume you would heal in a few months but it could take up to 2 years to fully recover depending on what damage you have.
You really should ask about vitamin levels though so you can start supplementing if you need to.
