During The Biopsy Do They Just Check For Celiac?

All that I was told was that celiac disease was confirmed (it was what was suspected). I imagine that other conditions were also considered without being found, but I do not know that for certain.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

With my son's 2 biopsies, they did find other issues....apparently not related to Celiac (somehow???). The first time they discovered ulcers and the second time they discovered redness and inflammation. He is STILL undiagnosed due to negative biopsies and is going in for his 3rd scope next week with a different surgeon/(he's had 1 each year). Once they discovered the ulcers the first time they tested for H.Pylori, which came back negative.
