Hi, I have to go into hospital for an endoscopy and colonoscopy soon, for issues unrelated to Celiac Disease.   I have been Gluten free for such a long time now, that I am aware there will be little evidence of Celaic Disease/Gluten intolerance, but I was wondering if they would be able to tell if my Villi has been damaged through a biopsy if I specifically ask for one, because that would be good to know.

I would ask for celiac biopsies! If the doctor is going in for a look, it would not hurt! Also there are other things that can damage villi. Just a visual usually does not identify damaged villi, so insist on a biopsy (ies).

If your villi was damaged as a result of celiac disease, you might not have healed yet. Not sure if it is because of the high learning curve of the gluten-free diet delaying healing or not. Not sure there has been much follow-up research done. I doubt it based on a recent FDA conference I read (script). Fasano and Greene (celiac doctors and researchers) said that celiac disease patients are diagnosed and sent off with little support or follow-up.

Good Luck!
