Well, did they order a celiac blood panel? These are the list of tests:

-tTG IgA and tTG IgG

-DGP IgA and DGP IgG


-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)

-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests

You had the endoscopy, but most times a visual shows no celiac damage. Multiple biopsies are taken because the small intestinal wall is vast in size (size of a tennis court). The colonoscopy is not typically ordered for celiac disease but some doctors biopsy the small intestine from the colon side.

-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken

The report states that everything appears normal on inspection, except you appeared to have duodenitis, which is inflammation of the uppermost section of the small intestine. Duodenitis is a very common finding and could be due to a variety of causes. You had biopsies taken of multiple areas, so when those results come back you will have an additional report which might show other abnormalities not visible to the naked eye.
