So Confused!

Recommended Posts

So I did blood tests which were negative to gliadin IgA and tisse transglutaminase. I did entrolab stool test which showed slightly high IgA for gliadin but negative for transglut. I also am carrying one gene for celiac and one gene for gluten intolerance.

Had an endoscopy yesterday. I was told I had flattening of the folds of my duodenum which was "indicative of inflammation" and she did a biopsy for celiac (which I won't get for 2 weeks). She warned that the biopsy could be falsely negative because I had been off gluten for awhile (although I tried to eat gluten the day before the test).

So am I or aren't I? Can you have celiac without the tranglut being high? Can an intolerance that doesn't rise to the level of celiac cause fold flattening?

My head is spinning!

Since you were off gluten for a while, I think the bloodtest results would be skewed. The biopsy might show it, since you still have indications that were visible.

I hope you get answers soon!
