Endoscopy shows no signs of celiac

Recommended Posts

My dad was diagnosed 10 years ago with Celiac.  He has been eating a gluten free diet ever since.  He recently had an endoscopy done because he has problems with GERD.  The doctor took a biopsy.  He just got his results and it says no evidence of Celiac disease.  Does this mean that he still has Celiac but because he has been eating gluten free, there is no evidence of it?

Yes.  He has healed!  But if he eats gluten, he will get sick again

Yes, I agree with Karen (and so do all celiac experts).  He still has celiac disease (lifelong), but he has healed.    What did  they say about his GERD?  Gastritis?  Was H. Pylori ruled out?   I ask because my recently endoscopy (five years gluten free after my celiac disease diagnosis), revealed a healed small intestine, but that I have chronic Autoimmune gastritis.
