False Negative Biopsy For Celiac
Is it possible to have celiac disease if you have positive biopsy yet negative DQ2/DQ8? I have fasciculations and they stop when i don't eat gluten.
Yes: Biopsy is the gold standard and your history is totally compatible with gluten intolerance. If gluten bothers you, you need to avoid it regardless of the test results.

As such, some parts of the duodenum may visually appear relatively unremarkable. Also, gluten avoidance may result in a normalized small bowel lining prior to diagnostic biopsies. ...Read more

If there is improvement it may be challenged by re-exposing to gluten. ...Read more
