Re: H_Pylori or Coeliac?????

The dr. can tell through an endoscopy and biopsy by flattening of the villi (little hair-like structures) in the small intestine. The flattening means that damage has been done--which can be repaired by going on a gluten-free diet. Some dr.s can tell just by looking through the endoscopy but the best way would be to take a biopsy. I don't know alot about celiac disease, but my dr. suspected I may have it because of my symptoms--although he never did bother to test me for it. He did explain a little about it though. There are tons of websites on Celiac (or Coeliac) disease on the internet.

Glad to hear your endoscopy went well and keep us posted on the results...I am curious to know!

It sounds more like inflammatory bowel disease to me.

This is different to IBS.

Did the doctor test your blood for EM or tTG antibodies??? This helps to diagnose coeliacs disease.

Re: H_Pylori or Coeliac?????

I am 22 years old and I have both celiac and gastritis. If you are on a gluten and wheat free diet celiac disease will not show up in a biopsy, endoscopy or blood test even if you have it. To get diagnosis for it you need to be on a gluten and wheat including diet for at least two weeks before teh procedure. Hope that helps.
