My twin sister was diagnosed with a severe form of celiac disease so I got tested an year ago showing no symptoms at all!My antibodies were totally negative (contrary to my sis who showed highly elevated antibodies) but my endoscopy showed patchy villous atrophy!I was told to go gluten free so I did for 7 months, nothing changed in my health so now once in a while I eat gluten (even a beer) and I show no problem. Is it possible I was misdiagnosed?Can a silent celiac become more sensitive on a strict gluten free diet?
"Is it possible to have a negative blood test, but a positive biopsy?
While rare, it is possible to have a negative blood test and still have celiac disease. tTG sensitivity is approximately 98%, which means that 2% of all celiacs may have a normal tTG level. Sometimes tTG antibodies are not produced enough to show up in the blood stream and can only be detected in the intestinal mucosa by special means.
IgA deficiency is a reason why you might have a negative blood test, but a positive biopsy.
Further medical evaluation is important for anyone still experiencing symptoms in order to establish the diagnosis or to rule out celiac disease as a part of establishing another diagnosis. In some cases, celiac disease is the wrong diagnosis as such conditions as Crohn’s Disease and food protein allergy share many of the same symptoms."
