Found Out Today Why No celiac disease Biopsy Was Required

7 posts in this topic

Here are the my blood test results:

IGA Serum =164

Gliadin AB (Demidated) IGA >100 (abn: h)

Tissue Transglutam AB IGA > 100 (abn: h)

Endomysial AB (IGA) Positive (abn: h)

Endomysial AB Titer 1:80 (abn: h)

Today I was put back on the pills to help control Microscopic Colitus. They figure I have both celiac disease and Micro to control. From what I have been reading on the forum is not uncommon.

Welcome. I dont know what Mucroscopic colitis is but it doesnt sound fun. At least you dont have to do an endoscopy.

Bummer about those high lab numbers but on the bright side, that is about as positive a blood test as you can get... at least it's a very clear positive diagnosis. I'm afraid I don't know much about the colitis either... I hope the gluten-free diet helps both conditions and you feel better soon.

Best wishes and welcoe to the board.

My dd has a 164 TTg and positive ema and they STILL wanted to do the endo. Of course it was positive and left us with all the hospital bills. I wish I had a doctor like yours who would diagnosis without biopsy. I know they might need it for certain things in school/college but for the price of our medical bills, I could have just paid for the college meal plan! Ha!

I got the impression from both my doc (GI) and daughter's doc (Ped GI) that the scope is recommended to get a baseline for damage and to make sure there are no other issues present. I'm very confident my daughter has celiac but we're moving forward with the scope even though I have serious anxiety about it.

Having celiac disease doesn't rule you out from having other gastrointestinal issues that a scope might see, (although the 3 month diet to make yourself sicker, I agree, is stupid.) In fact it seems to increase the liklihood of things like crohn's, which I believe needs to be viewed from inside to diagnose properly too?

Microscopic Colitis just means the large intensine is messed up as well, The general cause is NASID products like Advil, Aspirin and Aleve.

Thanks for your input, sorry you hade to go through the scope, Maybe they figure I have had a long long time to mess my system up, and there is no reason to check at age 64. The diet will fix it over time.
