Ulcers found during endoscopy

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I had a blood test done for celiac 2 weeks ago. My vitamin D was low, CRP was high. My ttg/dgp was negative. Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive, Doctor said I might have a gluten sensitivity. Also, I tested negative for h.pylori. I had my endoscopy done yesterday, the doctor found a "few small ulcers". She's testing for h.pylori again. Now I'm waiting on the results for the biopsy. 

Is it common to have ulcers in a celiac diagnosis? I have a feeling this maybe related to IBD( chrons or UC)...

Ulcers were the only GI symptoms one of my children had.  Also a weak positive on the test doesn't always mean you don't have celiac. It is IMHO more likely you do. I hope your doctor took more than one biopsy and took them from different spots as damage can be patchy. 

I also had ulcers at diagnosis and was given PPIs but I chose to wait and see if the diet healed them before taking the pills. It did.

Do be sure to give the diet a good strict try after all Celiac related testing is finished.
