Did you go back on gluten prior to the biopsy? Or were you gluten-free up till the time you were scoped?

Well, I had an "inconclusive" blood test and negative biopsy (of course this was done several months post gluten-free) We had suspicions and there was no way I could continue to eat gluten while waiting for the biospy (gotta love Canada's healthcare system!)

My mother has celiac and I had 100% the same symptoms as she had. I eliminated gluten and s...l..o..w..l..y but surely I got better. My gastro felt confident in saying I had celiac based on elimination of other diseases and family history.

Tests are not perfect! Despite my results I will NEVER eat gluten!

oh well, if you weren't eating gluten, then there you go! You have to be in order for the biopsy to be accurate. And do you feel better when you stop eating gluten? Do you need more of an answer than that? I've had a top GI tell me that clinical results are worth way more! He said negative biopsy and all, he considers me celiac...

I'm not doctor, obviously, but if the blood tests are positive I'd say you have celiac. If it's literally looking at your "tract" and you haven't eaten gluten then it would be negative. And I would think regardless if your blood test was positive, no matter the GI tract test, then it doesn't matter. I'm told I'm celiac and I honestly don't have many issues aside from joint, teeth issues, vitamin deficiency, passing out once in awhile and bloating/stomach aches. I bet if I had my tract checked it wouldn't be that bad and may even be negative, etc, even when I do eat gluten.
