Diagnosis biopsy ,update

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, well , I received a text from the doctor late yesterday evening to go down this morning at 08.30 , so I did, he then gave me a report saying my diagnosis is as follows . "Patchy inflammation of the duodenal mucosa, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes , crypt hyperplasia with villous atrophy,"  so it seems he says , "You DO have Celiac disease !"  I also need a follow up at the GI clinic in 8 weeks time, he said a note at the bottom says  that " the patient should now follow a strict gluten free diet" . I thought my biopsy was negative , seems they hadn't received the note from the consultant.  Well , at least now I know.

Well, it can only get better now!  I am sorry that you have celiac disease, but it is nice that we can essentially heal ourselves with a good gluten-free diet.   Stick with whole foods and avoid processed until you feel better!

Hugs!  ?

Thank you for the replies , Its a big help to know there are lots of people in the same boat, willing to offer advice, my own brother is a Celiac and has spoken to me, its all very daunting what to eat and what not too eat and beer ... I like it a lot , but my brother drinks Corona and says its fine as are some Japanese lagers , many thanks again.

I sure am glad that got settled! All first degree relatives should be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present.

This should help you a LOT. Read this thread & follow the links contained within:

As to the Corona, I wouldn't be caught dead drinking it but it's your gut & your health. You might wish to read this:

Thank you again , I forwarded the link onto my brother who is a fan of "Corona " and he was astounded by the review, 200ppm , and its classed as safe ?!  Well I don't think he'l be drinking it anymore ,like he says , he's spent the last  year on a totally gluten free diet even buying his own pans and utensils thinking a couple of Corona's is fine , not knowing it was all for nothing !  both very good articles, I've a long way to go but many  thanks again .

You're welcome but in all fairness I must point out that it tests under 20ppm. The way the type is written is mistakable for extra zeros. I even had to do a double take, triple take on it. However, for every one you drink you're adding gluten.

For what it's worth, I wouldn't be caught dead drinking anything but a true gluten free beer. Well, if I did then I am sure I would eventually be found dead. To me it's just not worth it. You may not feel a reaction but that does not mean damage is not being done. Eventually it will catch up to you. There are some really good gluten-free beers out there and admittedly there are some that taste like crap. You just have to try them until you find one or 2 that YOU like and you can find that. There are more being made all the time. Or you can become a wine lover.

Personally I don't care for beer -- gluten free or otherwise. I'm quite sure that's because pre dx, beer always made me sick as a dog. I learned that even as a teen experimenting as teens do, with alcohol. Now I know why beer always tore my gut up something awful. My aversion to it still lingers. I'll take vodka. Yum. With apricot nectar, cranberry juice, Rose's Lime, black russian, white russian, bloody mary, orange juice, pineapple juice and a hundred other ways.

    Thanks.  I think these were not the freshest tortillas.  Layering instead of rolling tastes the same but isn’t as “ fun” as rolled.  
    It is ugly truth that taking vitamins/minerals with RDA and AI can leads to major side effect. Biotin: it comes in food and supplement. It is highly suggested not to take it doses more than 30 µg. Its biggest sources is almond,cauliflower ...
    This is great advice, my mother and grand mother (both Hispanic) always would get the freshest ones and dip in the sauce before rolling. When reheating it varied with tortillas on freshness (and how much of a hurry) but they either heated...
