No. I'm the only one in the house. So, the test should be accurate....as accurate as they are, anyways!

depends how long you have to wait for the biopsy. However, a false negative biopsy is more common than a false positive blood test. Depends on the severity of villi damage....you can have symptoms even before the villi are severely damaged...

i wasnt eating gluten when they did the biopsy. it makes me really sick and my bones and muscles ache. ect. my mom and i say i have celiac even though the biopsy says otherwise.


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...

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!
