Not Sure What My Diagnosis Is?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently went through blood marker testing (which was negative) and then had an endoscopy in which my biopsies were labled Early Celiac Marsh 1. Neither of my doctors (Primary or GI) has been really open to discussion...

I am trying to determine if I am trully Celiac? I now am going to live a Gluten Free life, but no one has mentioned to me anything about getting my children tested.

Quite confused and would appreciate any help that can be offered.

Marsh 1 means damage to the villi is not advanced, but is present. I would consider that a definitive diagnosis of celiac disease. False negatives are common, but false positives are quite rare.

All first-degree relatives of a diagnosed celiac should be tested. That includes siblings, parents, and children.

Do you have symptoms that resolve gluten-free? If so you're definitely celiac. Yes, your kids should be tested.
