Hello,

I am new to this forum. I was dx with MC 5 yrs ago. A couple of weeks ago I had blood drawn to test for transgluminase IgA and endomysial(?) blood test. Anyway, they both came back positive for celiac according to my GI. I am not sure of the lab values, but I will try to find out. Anyway, I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy today to confirm the dx of celiac sprue. The doc said all looked good on the endoscopy, no inflammation noticed. My question is, can you have a positive blood test with a negative biopsy? I hear of false negatives all the time, but false positives? I should find out results in about a week. The doc did say that I am for a fact gluten intolerant.

Thanks!

Rome

If you have a positive blood test, then somewhere in your intestine you have enough damage to allow food proteins to leak into your blood. Just because it wasn't in the part they can see doesn't mean it isn't there.
