Negative Blood But Positive Endo?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My doctor did a blood test for Celiac which came back negative but when they did an endoscopy the biopsy results were "consistent with stage 1 Celiac". Have any of you had similar results? I went gluten-free for 3 months but really didn't feel a whole lot better and because my results were mixed I'm wondering if I actually do have Celiac disease or if it's something else. I guess my question is which is more likely to be accurate, the blood test or the biopsy results?

The biopsy.

I believe the positive blood results come after intestinal damage.

The biopsy. False negative blood work is not uncommon. For that matter so is false negative biopsy but when either or both are positive it is pretty conclusive.
