High Ttg. Endo Tomorrow

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm 31 an have been diagnosed with ibs since I was 14. Recently my symptoms have been worse so my gi dr ordered some tests. My ttg came back positive and my iron low. Everything else was normal. The dr said I might have celiac but probably not. I have my endoscopy in the morning and am alittle confused. Reading many posts on here that say endo has many false negatives so is it even worth it? Any one else have elevated ttg but not celiac?

Ask the doctor to take at least 6 samples in the small intestine from different areas. Damage can be patchy thus why so many samples to get a more accurate biopsy. My guess you probably were misdiagnosed with IBS since you were 14 and really were celiac then. Rareley there are false positives on the blood work.
