…and they’re inconclusive!
After the blood tests came back with the phrase “highly suggestive of Celiac,” I went in for an endoscopy. During the endoscopy, there was some damage to my small intestine, but the damage wasn’t enough to make a diagnosis. According to the gastroenterologist that I saw, just because the biopsy came back negative doesn’t mean that I don’t have the disease. There are several things in play, specifically: I have the symptoms, they improve when I don’t eat gluten, and the blood tests are highly suggestive. He said that the blood tests and symptom correlation is enough for him to make a diagnosis.
I don’t know what to make of it. I’m going to be seeing my GP soon, maybe she’ll have some insight and maybe I’ll have a sure diagnosis soon. Until then, I’ll not be eating any gluten.
