Once in a while I just like to try to catch the attention of someone I think can help with a thread.

 

As for my mailbox, I will soon not be receiving mail, because I can't part with so many messages from the last 2 years!

I guess I thought you were the one that did 3 annual endoscopies.  I noticed a couple of endoscopy threads that I wondered if you could help with.  Oh, yeah one thread seemed to be saying there would be no damage left after 2 years gluten free.  I have no idea where that thread was anymore.  Another thread finally has some answers now.  Thanks.

Yep...I had four endoscopies...one each year for four years...the first three were similar. Only the last showed minor improvement, but still marsh iii b's and c's.

I do not have refractory celiac.

Edited to add: my case is not the norm. While many folks have lingering symptoms, most have villi recover substantially in correlation to their improved celiac antibody and nutrient absorption levels. My antibodies are all near zero and nutrients have all recovered well.

Thanks, I am 2+ years gluten free and facing a colonoscopy, so why not do the endoscopy at the same time? I had decades, ( if not a lifetime of damage), so I expect it to take a long while.  Though I am well,  I am still in transition with feelings of constant healing, but still have some tenderness in the intestine at least at times.  I could see if I could get diagnosed by endoscopy or if healing has taken place.  NO WAY need I to think of a gluten challenge.  I am going to try to consult with the GI doctor to see if they know what they are doing first.  Also, if they care to look without the gluten challenge. 

 

Hopefully, everyone will post their ideas for questions in the other thread.

    • You did not have celiac testing done.  ☹️ Instead,  your doctor checked your immune system.  This explains it simply. http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/test-immunoglobulins.html  In the case of celiac disease, you are slight deficient in IgA, but for celiac disease it is used as a control test to determine if celiac testing is valid.   Time to buy or get to the library to research celiac disease.  Read all the good links given to you earlier. 
    • I never was a very sick person until I was diagnosed. Now I wish I would catch the common cold instead of all the intestinal issues I have. I don't get the flu either. I can't remember the last time I was non celiac related sick.  Except for menopause, but that's another book for another day.
    • Oh I'm sorry I didn't notice that the picture cut off. Let me attach a better one. These are the only labs that I have had done that have IgG, IgM or igA in the name. These tests were completed when the Dr was looking for what he called " autoimmune disease" to explain my liver and bile duct problems. Unfortunately if these aren't the celiac tests I have been Gluten free for 6 weeks so to my understanding it would be pointless to request the tests now.  Thanks for taking a look and giving me any insight that you may have.
    • Those labs do not look like celiac tests.  The first three MIGHT just be measuring total antibody levels of the three different classes, but on the very right it has IgA Serp (Serp cut off?) and I don't know what the Serp is referring to.   The first column is the test name, the second column your value, the third column the units of measure, the fourth column the normal range.  The first one is a tiny bit low, all the rest in the normal range.  
    • Since this post is going around again, I thought I would add my recent experience at Rudy's.  The staff was very helpful and accommodating. I ordered my family's food first put it on a tray and then ordered mine separately.  I ordered only chicken and turkey. The staff changed gloves and used a new cutting board and knife. My server washed his hands, wiped down the scale and put my meat separately into a tray. I washed my hands before I ate. I did not eat any of the side and brought my own fruit to go with it.   Since I don't get immediate symptoms, I can't tell you if that was enough. But, their meat (except the pork - maybe ) is gluten free.  I think I did everything I can to avoid CC and the staff was extremely helpful . This is the only restaurant I have eaten at in 4 months if that tells you anything. I love Rudy's!!!
