Does this sound like Celiac? Have been gluten-free for 2 weeks. PCP and GI were communicating. Report states:

1.) Benign small intestinal mucosa, with focal, partial villous blunting and mild crypt hyperplasia, suggestive, but not diagnostic, of celiac sprue.

2.) No intraepithelial lymphocytosis seen.

3.) Recommended clinical, endoscopic and serologic correlation; re-biopsy after gluten-free diet.

GI Dr. wants me to stop gluten-free diet for 1 week and have blood work taken to make it conclusive. It appears most other reasons for blunting are rare so does it appear to be Celiac? Will antibodies be in the blood after 1 week? Again, only on gluten-free diet for 2 weeks.

Recent biopsy showed:

1.) Benign small intestinal mucosa, with foacl, partial villous blunting and mild crypt hperplasia, suggestive, but not diagnostic, of celiac sprue.

2.) No intraepithelial lymphocytosis is seen.

3.) Recommended clinical, endoscopic and serologic correlation. Dr. didn't do blood test first.

Can you have Celiac with no intraepithelial lymphocytosis?
