  1. Thought I should update this with my results. My biopsy for celiac was negative. The Barrett’s esophagus was negative for dysplasia so that is great news. They did a ton of blood work and I was under the understanding that the ones for Celiac were included but they were not done. From the other blood tests it looks like I do have Hashimoto’s (I also had an ultrasound of my thyroid) and Pernicious anemia so my GI doctor is recommending that I eat gluten-free anyway. He’s not convinced my biopsy for Celiac was accurate. Anyway, I’ve been eating gluten-free for almost two weeks and not all of
  2. My GI doctor said we’d being seeing a lot of each other. Waiting for biopsy results and follow up appointment to know just how much. At least I got a great nap during the procedure! Thanks!
  3. Well, I survived my endoscopy and colonoscopy today. I won’t have results for awhile but I was diagnosed with Barrett’s esophagus today. Another thing that was not on my radar. Is Barrett’s esophagus related to celiac? Anyone else have experience with this?
  4. Thank you! I wouldn’t have known about this!
  5. Thank you for the replies. I kept telling myself that it couldn’t be the gluten because I wasn’t gluten-free before this. Dang. My liver enzymes are only slightly elevated but have been that way and increasing a bit more for the last 3 years. My doctor did mention the blood test but since I’ve recently passed that magic “50” mile marker and was due for a colonoscopy, he decided to go straight to the endoscopy and do them at the same appointment. I will ask about the blood test. Thanks again!
  6. Hello! I’m new to this group, and this is my first post. I’m one of those people that thought Celiac was an allergy, despite having a family history. My Grandma was diagnosed as a senior citizen and there are other family members but I have never discussed it with them. Now that I know more about it, I believe my dad has it but he will never get tested. He doesn’t have much faith in doctors. My genetic test shows I do have one gene and my doctor wants me to be tested because of chronic constipation and reflux as well as elevated liver enzymes. I hadn’t been eating much gluten in recent year
