So, I finally had my endoscopy this morning.  My GI said that everything appeared normal and that he took several biopsies.  I'm not sure how many that actually entails or where he took them.  I'm wondering if, although things appear visually sound, if the biopsies could still come back positive.  To refresh everyone so far: DQ7,8, DGP IgG positive, IgA deficient, and I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.  Also, if my biopsies are negative, where do I go from here?  What does that mean? I suspect, regardless, I need to stop consuming gluten.

My biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe damage).  Yet my endoscopy was normal.  No signs even of inflammation.  So, you have to wait for the pathologist to review the tissue samples.

If negative, consider the gluten-free diet.  Gluten could be the cause of your symptoms -- just no intestinal damage.

    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.  
    @anasss Nobody in this thread has called anyone "ignorant," so please don't say that if it did not happen. Also, the use of all capitals is, in forums and other places on the Internet, generally considered yelling and impolite, and there ...
