Help With Biopsy Results

19 October 2014 - 07:29 AM

My mom had her second biopsy after over 2 years gluten free. The biopsy says the villi is long on the periphery and there is no intraepithelial infiltrate. I guess this means her villi is normal now ?
However, it says there is mild inflammation in lamina propria/duodenum. Is it normal to still have this sign of celiac on spite of norm villi now and over 2 years gluten free ? Anyone with similar results ?
Her initial biopsy showed subtotal atrophy.

Mom's Second Biopsy After 2 Years Gluten Free

27 September 2014 - 04:24 AM

Hello Everyone,

As i mentioned before, my mom and aunt were diagnosed with celiac 2 months apart ! My aunt had her second endoscopy after 1 year gluten free and it shower NORMAL VILLI ! from marsh 3c. My mom had ttg number over 800 ! And after 9 months gluten free it dropped to 8 ! Now it has been over 2 years since she went gluten free and wedneaday she is having endoscopy with biopsy to check if she has healed because she had silent celiac no symptoms but she has high risk celiac genes DQ2 and DQ2.2. Fingers crossed ! Has anyone had a second biopsy and how soon after ? Mom had marsh 3b on first biopsy.

Anyone Had C Reactive Protein Test ?

06 August 2014 - 04:02 AM


My mom has been gluten free for 2 years and 3 months now, her follow up antibody test returned to normal after 9 months of diagnosis and she has a follow up endoscopy scheduled in two months to check if her intestine has healed. My mom had silent celiac so its difficult to tell if she has healed through her symptoms.

She recently has a routine blood work and her hs crp (high sensitivity c reactive protein) was 3.1. A couple of months ago it was 1.7. Has anyone had a hs crp test after celiac diagnosis ? The increase in number i have read maybe caused by inflammation anywhere in the body. I am worried that it is from her intestine and perhaps she didnt heal yet.
