Which Should Show Up First?

Recommended Posts

A positive blood test or a positive biopsy??

I guess my question is does the intenstinal damage cause the bloodwork to show ++ or does the presense of the antibodies in the blood cause the intestinal damage?? Does that make sense at all??

Can you have ++ bloodwork and a negative biopsy?? And can you have neg bloodwork and a pos biopsy??

Yes to both...I personally know of people who have had positive bloodwork and negative biopsy, and 1 person who had negative bloodwork, but her case was so indicative of Celiac, that her dr (a celiac local expert in the region), did a thorough biopsy....and her biopsy was clearly positive.
