Celiac based on circumstantial evidence

Recommended Posts

After two years of being sick, my gastroenterologist diagnosed me with celiac yesterday, but I'm skeptical.  As far as I'm aware, I only had three tests specific to celiac.  

Blood test results: 

Transglutaminase IgA Abs

19.3 U/mL

Biopsy results were normal (no idea of how many samples he took)
Prometheus genetic test: DQ2 Heterozygous 10X 

He feels I'm in the early stages of celiac, hence no intestinal damage but I would think 2 years of active symptoms would be enough to impact the intestines.  However, I know intestinal damage can also be patchy or mild in some people, right?  

I have a follow up in a month.  What should I ask him?  I don't want to get caught in a wild goose chase if this isn't celiac.  I've been on a gluten free diet since my scopes 2 months ago and was feeling better until a couple weeks ago when most of my symptoms returned.  I don't know if I was glutened or if I just got lucky for a month and had a reprieve from the worst of the symptoms.
