  1. I had a similar experience except I had a full celiac panel. Ttg >100 (positive was >4) and my endomysial antibodies were positive (not to mention low vitamin d, iron, and elevated ALT/AST). My blood work alone is pretty much 100% celiac, but the endoscopy done by my first GI only came up mild blunting (no marsh score or celiac diagnosis from biopsy). Switched to a GI who is much more fluent in celiac and he did a capsule endoscopy. This does not allow a biopsy which is the “gold standard” however he said my damage was very extensive all through the second section (jejunum) of the small intestine which I don’t think would have been reached by the endoscopy.
