Intial results are, her villi were shortened and dr said that he'd bet money on my daughter having celiac disease. Results on Thurs afternoon. In a letter he gave me it shows mild scalloping of duodenal mucosa folds, normal apprearance of stomach and duodenam.

Anyone else have these sorts of results? I'm trying to find out more on the more medical terms thats in the letter.

The duodenum is the top of the small intestine (where they take the biopsies from).

I believe that scalloping of the mucosal folds is an indication of damage caused by celiac disease.

Hopefully your daughter will get some relief soon on the gluten-free diet.

Me too, she's always ill on an evening and now its even worse because her throat is sore and swollen. She can't eat and won't drink much at all. Will be keeping a close eye on her. Looks like they managed to cut her uvula as there's a red line on it which is new. They didn't mention it so I assume it's ok and was done either during biopsy or just after.

Yep I had scalloping visually and on biopsy I had villi blunting and crypt hyperplasia. Weird thing was is that I did have intraepithelial lymphocytes, but not in the great number usually seen. But I'm celiac none the less.
