Help In Interpreting Biopsy Results - Please

23 April 2014 - 06:24 AM

Hi all, I was wondering if someone can help me in interpreting my EGD biopsy results from 2 weeks ago. My doc just called me yesterday and has asked me to stay away from wheat, milk and related products. Quite honestly, I am a bit shocked. 

 

Feb 2014: Celiac Lab came back as negative in all categories but in my IBD expanded profile showed the ALCA was high with everything else in range.

 

April 2014: Biopsy reads as follows "Duodenal mucosa including bulb mucosa with brunners glands, showing elongated villous architecture. There is a mild increase in the inter epithelial T Cells (CD3) in duodenal epithelium. Gastric Metaplasia not seen in duodenal epithelium". 

 

What does this mean? Is this a cause for concern? Do i need to go on a gluten free diet? I don't have ongoing symptoms on bloating etc...

 

Looking forward to your valuable input.
