Endoscopy on Tuesday

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am very sorry to be a big nuisance on here. I am scheduled for an endoscopy on Tuesday and isn't until later in the day. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on whether I should eat a lot of gluten the night before or whether it doesn't matter? 

Thank you for everyone's help on this forum.

As long as you have kept gluten in your diet there is no need to consume larger amounts the day before your procedure. You may want to consume your favorite gluten foods, especially if you had positive blood work, but there is no need to go overboard.

I has my endoscopy about 6 weeks ago, I didn't make a particular effort to eat more gluten the day before, just the same as what I had been eating, and my biopsy was positive for (partial) villous atrophy, so if its there it will show up.

Hi, no problem! It was the biopsies and as far as I am aware that is normally the case unless you have severe atrophy. Before I went I thought they could tell on the day but the doctor carrying out the procedure said most of the time they can't see. I asked him after if he thought it was celiac and he said "It looks like it probably is but if I hadn't known I was looking for evidence of celiac I wouldn't have said you have it".... So that didn't really answer anything! 

I went gluten free immediately after as you no longer need to eat it (although 6 weeks on and I haven't noticed a huge difference except maybe my digestive issues have improved). 

Are you having sedation? I just went for the normal throat spray (which tasted of bananas and gin!), and it wasn't particularly comfortable but was ok and personally I would do the same again.

Hi, 

I am very sorry for being a pain by posting on here again. I was wondering if I could ask for some advice? I had my endoscopy done earlier this evening and the consultant said everything looked normal and said he has taken plenty of D2 biopsies. I was wondering does this mean that Celiac is unlikely now? I am worried in case my problems will never get resolved and the amount of weight loss. Did other people encounter this?

Thank you for all your help,

It's impossible to answer this until the biopsy results are available unfortunately. The damage to the villi is too small to see with the naked eye. It's good news however that there's nothing amiss to the naked eye :)
