Well, if you've been diagnosed positive through bloodwork, then you don't need the biopsy done. The biopsy is simply reaffirming the results of the bloodwork. The diet is a big change, so many have a biopsy to be sure; after all, you wouldn't want to go through life questioning if you really need to be on the diet. It's really up to you, though......it's not necessary for diagnosis, just something to make sure.
