Good to know that you get right diagnosis. In 06 biopsies it is possible to get negative results for celiac disease because it is also possible that gastroentrologist has not taken biopsy from damaged area. Be sure to learn about cross contamination and be on strict gluten free diet. Best of luck!
I agree with cyclinglady, straight away go for strict gluten free diet as your increased levels of blood show celiac disease and also go for gene test to get confirm diagnosis if biopsy comes negative or even positive. It will confirm your diagnosis. Best of luck
I would appreciate if you could tell us how you are going? I am in a quite same position, desperately searching what could be the reason for my reflux. So I would love to know what was causing tour reflux and how did you solve it.
You did not say what the cause of your hypothyroidism was. Is it autoimmune (Hashimoto’s)? Were you tested for thyroid antibodies? If your body is under attack by “self”, it can cause your thyroid to work on and off. Celiac disease or not, it might not just be related to malabsorption (but it could).
If you had two positives on the celiac panel, you should consider seeing a Gastroenterologist and getting an endoscopy. Not only can it identify damage to the small intestine from celiac disease, but rule out other concurrent issues (Gastritis, cancer, SIBO, ulcers, etc.) but that is not always possible for financial or access to medical care.
If you do go gluten free, have those celiac antibodies retested to see if you are adhering to the diet and/or help confirm a celiac diagnosis. It can take over a year for antibodies to come down. It can take months or years to feel well (it sound like you may have two concurrent autoimmune issues).
I wish you well!
