Just updating you on my sons endoscopy. The consultant discovered he has gastritis so has put him on a course of antibiotics and acid reducing medication, so he is on three different medicines at the moment. He didn't confirm coeliac his waiting for the results of the biopsies. The consultant is also do a large number of blood tests including full coeliac panel, full check on vitamin and mineral levels, fbc plus others I cannot remember what. My sons previous blood results where low white count and anaemia.

It's good that your son's doctor is being so thorough.
Do keep us posted on the test results.
