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.

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
