My blood test is high at 195, is there any chance the biopsy will be negative. Dr thinks it will be positive for celiac 100%. He thinks no chance the tTGA is false. Is this true?

If this is the test where above 20 is positive, odds are very strong you have it. It's my understanding that false positive is very, very rare. My same number was right around 195.

The biopsy can have false negatives so do give the diet a good strict go as soon as the procedure is done.
