You should probably discuss this with your doctor. Did your doctor run celiac antibodies blood tests as well?

The antrum is a section of your stomach. It shows that something is irritating your stomach, and rules out the H. pylori bacteria as the source of the irritation.

Celiac disease can cause gastritis when gluten or other intolerable compounds are eaten.

The duodenum is the section of small intestine that connects to the stomach. This also shows mild inflammation, and rules out any evidence of a giardia infection, pre-cancerous, or cancerous cells in the specimens the pathologist looked at.
