Curious why the biopsy is necessary if blood tests are positive. Is she eating a gluten-free already?

We go in with our son tommorow for his endoscopy, he has not had blood tests yet.
As far as the stools go.. pale floating stools are a sign of malsorption and fat in the stools. If you want to bulk her up try giving her pediasure if she can keep it down. Otherwise just hang on till the 29th and we are always here to back you up!

I didn't think it was standard procedure to have a biopsy if the blood test proved positive. I can't see the point of it other then causing more pain for someone not being on a gluten-free diet.
In regards to having a biopsy I thought it was standard procedure to have one after the blood tests. I just hope she'll be okay and Im concerned on the damage thats being done while we wait for the biopsy.
I may be biased though, because I am self diagnosed. I was told I had IBS and went off gluten and began to feel better in 2 weeks....
