My daugher is 12 and was diagnosed in May, she is doing well. The Dr didn't tell us when to follow up. Should we??? Maybe we could follow up with her primary care physician? Do most Gastro Doctors follow up with another biopsy and if so how long? Any feed back would be appreciated. :unsure:

Thanks

Different doctors follow up at different times. My doctor followed my iron and other levels closely (I was very, very ill) but didn't redo the celiac blood tests for 14 months. Some redo the blood tests after 6 months. If you do this don't be upset if all levels aren't back to normal. Most doctors don't redo the biopsy any more UNLESS there's no or not enough improvement. If she's doing well and her blood levels have dropped, there's just no need for another biopsy.

The best test is how your daughter feels.
