That must be making you crazy! Can you get a copy of the biopsy report? If it shows signs of villi damage, I'd go with the celiac diagnosis myself.
As far as I know, there is no biopsy finding that can indicate "gluten intolerance but not celiac."
There are a few other rare causes of villi damage (certain parasites, for example) but non-celiac gluten intolerance isn't one of them. Maybe it's time for a new GI doc... where oh where are the enlightened ones?
My biopsy showed blunting of the villi, but not totally damaged. It also showed that I had numerous leukocytes in the biopsied tissue. That is why he wants to give me the gluten intolerance instead of celiacs disease diagnosis. I'm leery to not get a true celiacs diagnosis now, because I have gone off gluten already. My cancer diagnosis was missed for 18 months because my test were inconclusive and my doctor thought, "it's probably just messed up hormones from having a baby 6 months ago." I am the queen of inconclusive testing.
