Surgical Pathology Report- Pd Mimics celiac disease
0

9 posts in this topic

The results of biopsies (Dec,2012) follows:

The small intestines: No evidence of celiac disease in the 3rd and 4th part. However, at the 1st part(duodenum), showed mildly chronic peptic duodenitis, associated with villous architectural damage. The villi were widened/blunted. Negitive for H.pyloric. So stated, PD mimics celiac disease villous abnormalities.

The stomach: Antral mucosa w/mild chronic gastritis. Negitive H.pyloric.

The esophagus: mild mucosal inflammation due to acid reflux. I over indulged in chocolate and balsam vineagrette recently. :angry:

My last endoscopy was Sept, 2007. Similar results(AR/GERD). My GI Doc is pleased with stability of GFD. :) Next endoscopy: 2017.

For GI discomfort, 40mg Omeprazole/1 daily was Rx'ed. Feeling better already.

Make progress, become well and stay well.

PD? personality disorder? Parkinson's Disease? I don't think either if those directly damages the villi like Celiac does. :)

PD = peptic duodenitis.

You say no biopsies were taken?? None at all? Certainly the report doesn't mention any :wacko: and yet you talk about 'report of biopsies'. One wouldl think with villous blunting that one would want to rule out celiac disease rather than just say, oh, that's PD :rolleyes: The reason for biopsies, after all, is to see what one cannot see with the naked eye.

:huh: I strongly suggest that you re-read my topic. Six (6) biopsies were taken at various places with results as stated therein.

:unsure: I certainly did read your topic. :) You were the one who stated that no biopsies were taken; I now see that you were referring to none from the 2nd part. Based on your statement I assumed what you had reported initially as 'results of biopsies' was his procedure report which did seem rather detailed for the naked eye.

I do think, if I were you, I would be inclined to have someone else look at the slides and verify the duodenitis that 'mimics' celiac, just to be sure. :)

All is well. :) I'll get a 2nd opinion asap.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
