I recently went to the Gastroenterologist who told me something about possibly having celiac disease something about my upper GI I had in 2016 of there being a small trace of something that could indicate celiac disease. Anyway, he sent me for blood work and everything came back normal, except my glucose was slightly elevated at 103 other than that CMP and CBC was normal and my lipase serum was 54 u/l so could I still have Celiac Disease?

If you still eat gluten regularly it would make sense to get a follow up celiac disease blood panel. Definitely talk to your doctor in more detail about you biopsy results, but with the little info you gave us here there’s no way to tell for sure.

Thanks for your reply 😊 I guess I should be more specific lol I'm all over the place sometimes. So the upper gi was performed in 2016. The blood work u just picked up today. I have been having horrible tummy issues like constipation, heartburn "gerd" if u will. And just this week my belly has been swollen. I have horrible gas like not burping. But belching. I've always ate bread chips cereal never a problem. But if this could be celiac I dont want it. I will give up all that to not have all this terrible gas and heartburn. Anyways, could Celiac be diagnosed still if my Lipase blood work came out normally.

Lipase is not a test for Celiac.  Did they do actual Celiac blood tests?  If you have been eating gluten consistently since 2016, you should get the Celiac blood tests.  CBC, etc are not for diagnosing Celiac

You need the full Celiac blood panel, this disease can develop any time.  The upper GI scope (Endoscope) is normally done after with biopsies to check for damage. Some people do not show on the blood test but will still have the damage. I will give you some info post on the blood test screening and the scope diagnosis. But you need to really see about eating gluten every day and finishing testing properly.

PS I had the constipation issue before diagnosis, Natural Vitality Calm will help, the issue is from magnesium deficiency. Start with 1/4tsp or 2 grams and up the dose 2g each day til your get loose stools. Then back down 2g. You have to dose to tolerance with this stuff.
