#802511 Bloodwork Has Weak Positive

Posted by banjos on 11 June 2012 - 06:14 AM

hello! i am no expert but i believe you can have celiac with the one positive test. i had the same mildly positive blood test. my endoscopy showed no signs of celiac according to my dr's. my dr is saying that i don't have celiac but IBS and that i'm lactose intolerant. which is bizarre because i have no problems with dairy. BUT i have seen all of my seemingly unrelated symptoms disappear once going gluten free. since being gluten free i've accidentally consumed it twice and had awful reactions. that's enough proof for me!

i believe that they consider the endoscopy/biopsy the "gold standard" for diagnosing celiac. but you may have negative biopsy results and they may not technically diagnose you as being celiac but it's possible that you should not be consuming gluten.
