I was diagnosed with celiac in 2011 with a blood test but when I had two upper GI and colonoscopy by two different doctors  the other day, the doctors said there were no signs of celiac. I don't understand because I know what happens when I have gluten or or even cross contamination. It's not gluten sensitivity, I have all the symptoms but when he told me that I don't have it, I was devastated. I have a laundry list of illnesses that I contributed to celiac but I'm now confused. 

Has this happened to anyone or have you heard of this before?!?!?

Have you been gluten free since diagnosis? If you have then your tests should be negative.  You do still have celiac you have just healed.

You should be celebrating!  A healed intestine!  Yippee!  

Now the downer.....get a new GI who knows about celiac disease.  This doctor does not even keep up on celiac disease (he just needs to read GI journals).  Remember too that you need to wait for the pathologist's report.  Villi damage is microscopic.  Your GI would not be able to see that type of damage.  

You should be receiving follow-up care:
