Do any of you have celiac without many symptoms? I had positive tgg iga and igg and am awaiting an endoscopy. I have bloating, fatigue, but that's really about it. I'm wondering if my biopsy will even show anything since i don't have many symptoms. Thanks

You might be lucky and caught it before it flattens you.
Actually the number of symptoms doesn't seem to correlate with positive biopsies. Many people never knew they had Celiac at all due to having no symptoms but their biopsy came up positive. There is something called Silent Celiac where no symptoms are felt subjectively by the person with Celiac, yet they have the damage consistent with Celiac.

Other people have all kinds of symptoms and yet they test negative...go figure.

Sometimes, after you have been on a gluten free diet for awhile, then accidentally eat the stuff, you have so many symptoms, you wondered how it is that the rest of the world managed to convince you that feeling "this lousy" is "normal."

Thanks for your input. Maybe i do feel symptoms sometimes and i just don't relate them to gluten. This afternoon i felt like just crap. So tired, headache, foggy. And i did have a bunch of wheat thins with lunch so maybe it was related.

I never had GI symptoms except for the three days before I went to the doctor. I was waking up in the middle of the night with terrible abdominal pains, but other than that - nothing. Battled with anemia, syncope, and acid reflux for a while, but I never knew it had anything to do with the Celiac until after I was diagnosed. I was able to basically eat anything with no apparent issues and had no idea that my insides were being torn up. HOWEVER, now that I'm gluten free, I've become pretty sensitive to gluten and got terribly sick after eating gluten free gummy bears that were made in a facility that also processed wheat....go figure - NOW I have issues! :)
