  1. They did blood test to check her for pernicious animea. intrinsic factor AB which was negative Prietal cell AB this was a 29.6 So not sure how to understand these numbers
  2. Thanks so much for replying, it helps to talk to someone who knows more about this than we do at this point. She also has pernicious anemia so I wondered would that effect the villi. Her GI hasn't been very helpful just called and gave me the diagnosis and said follow up with her family doctor. Who said she would have to read up on it. Not very comforting to say the least.
  3. She did not have blood work, and no-one has mentioned to me that we should get tested. I've had trouble getting any direction about what medical steps she or I should be taking. Does you Gi doctor monitor this situation or your family practitioner?
  4. Hi, My daughter just got diagnosed with celiac disease and it caught us completely by surprise. She has not had symptoms except low iron(which could be other things) I'm posting what the lab said about the biopsy, could someone tell me if this is a definitely celiac? This is the small bowel part of the diagnosis: Pathologic Diagnosis A. Small bowel, Biopsy -small bowel mucosa shows villous blunting -prominent brunner gland aggregate -no significant acute inflammation or granulomata Comment: the small bowel biopsy shows a few blunted villi and there is marked villous blunting. The lamina propria contains mild chronic inflammation and there are mild increased intraepithelial lymphocytes. A prominent Brunner glad aggregate is also seen The differential diagnosis includes spur/celiac disease in the correct clinical condition. Clinical and endoscopic correlation and correlation with laboratory studies is necessary. Thanks so much I'm just hating this for her, she is just about to go off to college and it will be a major change for her.

  6. Hi, My daughter was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. Which was something that took us by surprise. The only symptom she had was low iron levels. Which is why they did the upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. I've attached her results of the upper endoscopy and I wondered if someone could tell me if this is a conclusive diagnosis. She was also told she has pernicious anemia which I've read is very rare to have both these conditions at the same time.
