My type 1 daughter for 10 years tested positive (greater than 100) on her ttg iga antibody blood test. We are under the impression that this is most certainly celiac--she also has had numerous symptoms over the years that now could make some sense if she has had celiac--although tested yearly this is the first time that she tested positive for celiac. She had the endoscopy on Tuesday and the GI said she saw villi---she did see some inflammation in her stomach, esophagus, etc. but it appeared normal in her 2nd portion of her duodenum. GI seemed to take several samples from different spots. Can you sometimes conduct a biopsy too soon for damage to appear? Is it possible that her biopsy could turn out negative? If so, what do we do? I think at this point that is my biggest fear because we had just started to wrap our heads around this new diagnosis and for her (and me) to be strict about doing a gluten-free diet I think a positive biopsy will be important? I'm not much of a cook and I'm already feeling quite lost as to how I am going to make dinner every night. Sorry I'm stressing over this---I know that we will find out soon--next week but I can't let this go.
