  1. Had my biopsy yesterday. No formal results yet but dr said there was a lot of inflammation and thickening of the wall. So he is sending me for a CT scan with IV contrast. He said he wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything “pushing” on the intestines. This has panicked me. Anyone have similar issues? He also said I had Duodenitis which I have read can be caused from Celiac. Thoughts?
  2. Thanks! Yes I do have many symptoms as well. I am going for the biopsies next Friday so hopefully I will have definite answers. Do you know what other possibilities could leave me with a false positive?
  3. Thanks! I am totally confused. I just copy and pasted off of my blood work results.
  4. Hello All, I am new to this site but have been doing research on my own. I have recently been tested for Celiac Disease. My test results were: Gliadin (Deamidated) Antibodies Evaluation, IGG, Serum >150, Tissue Transglutaminase (TTG) Antibodies, IGG Serum, >100, and Immunoglobulin A (IGA) <1. My doctor is sending me for biopsies in a week. Many people keep saying "oh maybe it's not Celiac." While I appreciate their positivity, and at the risk of sounding like a Debbie Downer, I don't see how I could not have Celiac. Am I miss reading the test results? The doctor wants to wait to have a conversation until after the biopsies but I am the type of person that needs to wrap my head around things and research my action plan before I jump. I am still eating gluten for the biopsies. Any clarification or advice would be great! Thanks!
