  1. My case has been forwarded to a Celiac expert, so we will see what awaits.
  2. Don't believe that the celiac panel you are referring to was ordered. The only blood tests for that was what I already posted with lga and lgg. Here is pathology report: DIAGNOSIS: A. Duodenum, second part, endoscopic biopsy: Patchy intraepithelial lymphocytosis (30-50/100 epithelial cells) with normal villous architecture. Plasma cells are present but there is no increase in lamina propria inflammation and no foamy macrophages. Comment: Increased intraepithelial lymphocytes with normal villous architecture can be seen in symptomatic, latent or partially treated gluten sensitivity (celiac sprue), dermatitis herpetiformis, and first degree relatives of gluten sensitivity. Other associations include systemic autoimmune disorders and NSAID use. B. Duodenum, bulb, endoscopic biopsy: Chronic peptic type duodenitis. There is focal equivocal increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes.
  3. Hey everyone, I have experienced swelling/arthritis type in my joints(right ankle, knee, left wrist). Also had torn tendon in right foot with no specific trauma. Many blood tests have taken with results normal, a few of the abnormals 35 iron, 21 vitamin D Leukocyte s 12 Neutrophils 7.88 Monocytes 1.18 LgA <1.2 LgG 7.0(weak positive) C reactive protein 67.9 Upper endoscopy revealed scalloping of duodenum with normal villi architecture. Biopsy showed higher white blood cells. At this point doc said I had celiac disease. My mother, also a physician got tested and showed negative genetic markers. My doc was unwilling to order genetic test and my mom ordered for me anyways. Here are the results: Celiac Disease Interpretation May 03, 2013 See comments Show historical results Permissive genes absent. Celiac disease extremely unlikely.
