Apparently both my son's have high tests results...I was wondering if there are any doctors that will give a positive diagnosis off of the blood test alone.  Meaning no biopsy?

 

Thanks!

Some might if there is symptom resolution after the gluten-free diet is started.  But that would be something to ask them before starting the gluten-free diet.  It is not the usual thing for doctors to diagnose without an endoscopy though.  If you can find a local celiac support group they might be able to give you leads on doctors that wold consider it.  The CSA (celiac sprue association)  and GIG (gluten intolerance group) may have chapters near you.  There are other groups like ROCK (Raising Our Celiac Kids) too. There are some independent groups in some areas also.

 

Oh well, never mind, someone (the Scott guy) already put together a great list of support groups here:
